Re: Brayís gimmick is officially ruined

Iím thinking this was Brayís interpretation of what he thought Vince would produce and that was the play here, especially with the devil puppet. Probably delusion on my part, but Iím thinking Vince didnít actually get his hands all over this, more that the point was Bray and the producers creating something they expect Vince to have come up with. Vince probably made this exact sort of jokey jab at him when he was Husky Harris, and as others have said the whole way through they have been referencing all of his gimmicks. Itís all in his head essentially. Iím intrigued how it translates in ring, as someone said in a SD thread he seems set for Kofi with the contrast of New Day to Funhouse to schizophrenic.

Re: Brayís gimmick is officially ruined

I actually thought it was quite clever with the symbolism overall. The pig named after his original name, Vince McMahon pressuring him to go over with a dance gimmick like Brodus Clay (around a similar time). It does make sense and fits in with his unstable new gimmick. Taking it on face value it looks cringeworthy, but I think it made a good parody.

Pair him with Nia and they can be the new Bodydonnas.

Re: Brayís gimmick is officially ruined

I'm one of Bray's biggest critics on here and I've loved every single firefly funhouse segment, including this one. It's the best thing going in WWE so I'm positive this is all coming from Bray himself. He's always been a creative guy, I'll give him that. Doink was a clown gimmick in a PG era and that didn't stop him from having a menacing tone. If they can present Bray as a threat and only have him wrestle on PPV's then this will be a money gimmick. He needs cult members now more than ever, maybe Eric Young and the rest of the Sanity guys they still have under contract.

Clearly Bray or the writer of that segment is a huge fan of Tim & Eric.

percy pringle and Black Metal like this.

I feel like Bray is going to flip the fuck out within the next month and turn into a darker version of his older self within the next month.

Bray's best shot to get over is to revive his dad's IRS character. Or he could just shoot on himself and be a philandering low life cheating scoundrel. Why not just play that up?

Re: Brayís gimmick is officially ruined

I'm loving his new gimmick so far but the whole firefly funhouse portion of it is starting to get pretty old. Like what is this all leading up to? I'm hoping John Cena knocks on the door in the next episode.

Ewwww. No. Please don't job Bray to that fucking failure of a champion.

Bray is like the most over guy in the company right now.

I don't like the gimmick, but to deny that it's working is silly. The vast majority of people love it.
