Anyone else noticing that some older gimmicks are kind of recycled just now...

I can't help but think that Darren Sandow's gimmick is basically just the same as The Genius in 1990/1991 (cartwheels and all)

Brodus Clay is pretty similar to Rikishi and Ryback is pretty similar to Goldberg obviously.

Sandow isn't just intellectual, He's a guy who hates todays American society.

And Clay isn't Samoan.

Gimmicks are going to be reused all the time. Even people like Punk and Ambrose who are considered revolutionary and breaking the mold are compared to guys from the past. Jericho's Y2J gimmick was compared to HBK.
