I would enjoy the New Day storyline. The beatdowns have to be BAD though. Have Xavier hung up and crucified backstage. Have Big E bloody in a parking lot. Etc.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

We have to be cautiously optimistic and excited for "The fiend". At least, that is where I am at right now because surely WWE will find a way to fuck it up like they did with The Wyatt Family.

His entrance, music and everything else, at Summer Slam was pretty awesome though. I didn't like the mask when he revealed it long ago but I have warmed up to it now.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

Have been singing the praises of Bray ever since he debuted - even when everybody said he was dead and buried, he reinvents himself despite his godawful booking past and transforms himself into a complete monster. Say what you want about his wrestling ability (who really gives a shit) but the creativity this man possesses is just astonishing. His only blockade is once again the demented old shitstain who runs the damn company.

Plus I hear Code Orange did his updated theme which is awesome (they also do Black’s theme).

He's awesome. He needs to squash Rollins ASAP but this is WWE he will lose to Demon Balor.

And why is it too much? Because he's not over enough to handle it? Bullshit.



Not in my eyes.



How is beating Rollins acceptable but Goldberg and Taker is too much? Rollins is more credible than Goldberg and Taker. He just beat Brock clean, which they couldn't do.

Not to mention you're talking about him winning the title, which is the ultimate destination, but beating two over the hill legends is too fast? What? Beating an over the hill legend is not more important than beating Rollins or winning the WWE title. I won't say less important than beating Kofi, because who the fuck is Kofi, but he does have the title and that is ultimately far bigger than just some win against Goldberg or Undertaker.
Umm...what?

That doesn't tend to be how Vince works. Vince lets the performer get stuff out of their system and fall on their face before ultimately committing to a long character.

They did similar with Undertaker's infamous 'pipe bomb' promo in like May or June of '98. They only had to damn near kill Foley at HiAC 2 to cover and make everyone forget just how bad that was. After which he went dark for an extended period of time with no complaints.

Now they have this whole Firefly bullshit where i'm sure Vince gave Bray free reign and a length of rope to go get whatever he wanted out of his system, and it played to crickets and was gooker-worthy.

I'm quite sure he'll be The Fiend for a good long while now, so long as it is well-received. It'll all be dependent on the matchups they feed him and whether or not they hit the chicken-switch or not.

Because whether you like it or not, he's still a clown in a mask and they could very well perceive him as such, and if it falls into haha, this will not end well.

I still think everything about this gimmick in and of itself, from the Firefly Fun House, to the ring gear, to the remixed theme (until the chorus anyway) is bad and shouldn't work, but it does work only because he has so much charisma and the presence of a madman.

It's impossible for me to get excited about it, though, because I KNOW they're going to ruin it. If this was AEW I'd have faith, but in WWE, uh uh. We don't get to have nice things like real main eventers as champions, we get Rollins and Reigns.
You already guaranteed this gimmick wouldn't make it to PPV because it was bad and it did make it to PPV so do you maybe think it's actually NOT as bad as you think it is?

These marks are hilarious, they say fuck Brock and are glad an injured Rollins beat Lesnar clean but when you tell them the aftermath, that now Rollins is more credible than people Goldberg and Undertaker they lose their minds!! HAHAHA

Re: The Fiend is awesome

It's good so far.


WATCH Some old Kane stuff and IT the movie. Try to book this thing properly....



Knowing WWE...I doubt they pull it off. But I am hopeful.
