Little children coming into the ring every week from now on to dance with Brodus, Cameron and Naomi?

Seriously, why are WWE doing this kind of thing? It's just embarrassing. You wanna get families to sit round the TV and buy your PPVs and merchandise, we get that WWE, but why shove content meant for children's television down our throats? Sure it might only be a quick segment after the match, but it just doesn't seem fitting with RAW or SmackDown. Keep the kids out please... and Hornswoggle who needs to be released.

I actually don't mind. The Funkasaurus is retarded anyway, better to make it obvious so you can say: Yeah, he's just there for the kids.

Sux... and please no f*n HORNSWOGGLE anymore.

Funkasaurus is basically a cool character, but it's messed up with that kids/hornswoggle-stuff.

Why must they ruin every entertaining face character ever? Why?

I loved Funkasaurus when he first debuted but they're turning him into just another Hornswoggle. WWE really has no idea what to do with faces.

This whole bit with the kids is part of making him a household name, and that's all. People will remember this, and have various opinions on the matter. However, the only real thing going on here is the proper steps in building for a strong heel turn. Brodus Clay said before he left NXT that he was going to destroy their heroes, or WWE mainstay stars. Now that everyone has forgotten that side of him, and he has become this gimmick of sorts in order to properly set up for a true heel turn that will certainly turn heads, and let me bank on the fact that when it happens there will be children in the ring to witness it all (paid child actors obviously). That's when Brodus Clay, or G-Rilla takes over to show the world he is not some joke, and if anybody even thinks about calling his mamma he will break both of their arms.

Y'all are actually complaining about the funkasaurus dancing with kids. Yo, Rikishi and Too Cool did that shit all the time. This is nothing new. Quit complaining about stupid ish that isn't a big deal. WWE has always catered to kids, even in the attitude era. This is nothing new. Just because we are older and see how the WWE works, doesn't mean it is new. It's just new to us because we were kids then and didn't see what we see now. And for goodness sake, we complain about crappy shit in the WWE all the time. But for some reason, you guys mark out for Funkasaurus. Doesn't make a lick of sense.

What I don't like is the gimmick. I wish he would've used his Superstars gimmick. He was a heat magnet on the NXT finale and that wasn't piped in.

I like it, having him be a for-the-kids act allows WWE to tone down the kiddy stuff elsewhere. Would you rather have 2 minutes of silly dancing or 2 hours of the shit we were getting during Linda's senate campaign?

I'm not sure why you think being a kids act is easy, most entertainers who've done both say it's easier to do adult stuff (and no, I don't mean porn fpalm)
Because kids are easier to entertain than adults.
All you need is colourful clothing and corny catch phrases like"You can't see me"
Just ask John Cena.

This is EXACTLY it. They've created their own Barney the Dinosaur, but there's a face and a story behind it. And Brodus' is pretty good from his past job as one of Snoop's bodyguards to his required weight loss and the hard work that went into making his dream comes true. Brodus will be a likeable, simple babyface probably the majority of his career but he will connect with with (obviously) the super young contingent of the audience. It seems the WWE are trying to attract more, even younger children to the shows.

Why would they stop? WWE is a kids-targeted show. Hasn't this already been established or are we still pretending the Attitude Era is going to restart on Monday?

This is the exact moment when Clay became a permanent midcarder. And it's a shame because he can do a lot more than just be a joke kid act.

I'm not surprised though. Ryder, Santino, and now Clay are all fighting for the same kid friendly permanent midcarder spot. Hopefully they won't turn Ryback into that.

I can handle Brodus's gimmick even though he needs to do more and I know it's for the kids, but leave that shit for the house shows. The 'dancing with the kids' shtick doesn't have any place on the tv shows in my opinion.

This is a show that kids watch aswell so why not give them something to enjoy. And before you all start asking about why there is nothing for you to enjoy have a llok at what the wwe title match is at over the limit.
There has to be something for everybody to enjoy , not just us.

I think the bigger problem is that they are jobbing Ziggler/Swagger to him. There isn't a point in continually depushing Vickie's stable for no reason at all. If his purpose is to keep kids happy, sacrifice some heel jobbers who are already one step from being future endeavored like Slater, JTG, McIntyre. Losing to Clay continually won't make a difference in these cases and the kids will still remain happy.
