This has to be one of the single worst Raw debuts in history.

Where do I even begin with this shit?

First off... Who thought this was funny? The Funkasarus? Come on. That's fucking horrible.

Anyway, he's given a terrible introduction, and a godawful entrance, with a couple of dime-store escorts coming out and awkwardly doing some kind of hideous dance, as if they don't even want to be there.

Brodus comes out in the stupidest looking jumpsuit I've ever seen. It looks like a grade school play costume, or a high school janitor's uniform. One of the two.

And then the music. It's Ernest Miller's old WWE theme. No, not the iconic WCW one, but Ernest Miller's theme song used during his brief career in WWE.

It even has Ernest Miller's old catchphrase in it. "Somebody call my momma", repeated constantly. So, his entrance theme not only doesn't even belong to him, but it has the catchphrase of another wrestler all over it?

This is embarassing. It's embarassing to watch. Apparently the crowd thought so, too. The boos were immediate, massive and loud.

All the build-up and expectation for Clay, and for this?

My only remaining hope is that this is, in some way, a joke. Or a farce.

Brodus's only fleeting hope to have anything of a career after this, is to come out next week, dump all over this gimmick, stomp on it, kick someone's ass, and go on a tirade against terrible gimmicks that are made to make new talent fail.

That's the only thing that might even come close to salvaging him after this massive turdbomb.


But this is WWE.. and therefore runs the very possible risk of them actually being serious with this. If so, I'm sorry, but after this, if this really is the gimmick they expect Brodus to run with, kiss his career goodbye.

(EDIT) P.S: Jesus, I'm still angry just thinking about it.

Even if somehow this IS going to be him coming out next week and dropping this terrible gimmick, the damage is already well past done. WWE can MAYBE mitigate the damage of this AWFUL Raw debut, but they can't erase it.

If they were hoping to get people to tune in for this, then everyone who was disgusted by it and changed the channel to see THIS be the debut of the guy that had been hyped up so hard, most likely aren't going to come back to see what he does with this banal "Funkasaurus" crap.

Everyone who expected Brodus's debut to be worth ANYTHING is now alienated, and you can only hope to salvage a little of it, after this. But then again, anything they do at this point will just come off as forced as the re-working of Rikishi's terrible reveal of the Stone Cold hit-and-run as being Triple H's master plan.

Brodus needs to do everything he can to distance himself from this and do it immediately. Tacky, horrible, insulting, and it's bound and determined to make him fail.

It could all be part of an angle by Johnny Ace to rile him up and make him an even angrier killing machine. Perhaps each week he will do a different one until he snaps and just mauls someone.

However, that said....

I absolutely freaking loved it!! I thought it was brilliant. It was a wonderful curve ball to give the audience exactly what they didn't expect, and I think a fun gimmick like that is precisely what's needed rather than just another big angry shouty bloke. I like the idea of him being a funny guy enjoying himself until you annoy him, at which point he will rip your head off.

I think its far more entertaining and likely to give him more shelf-life than just being Taz crossed with a hippo.

Wrestling is entertainment, and as with any circus, you need the odd clown.

In all honesty, I am just praying, praying, praying that this is scrapped immediately and never talked about again.

It might have been a joke, effective or not, that's certainly up for debate... But as a joke, that you may have thought worked, or that I didn't think worked... I seriously feel this Funkasaurus thing is already the first boot on his ass into the future endeavored pile.

I mean, I'm all for him having a facet to his personality, but he needs one that also is fitting to the matter at hand, as someone who should be intimidating, or made to feel like a legit opponent to someone. Not so much a laughing stock character.

He'll never climb out of the Doink The Clown or Simon Dean "i can't take this guy seriously" pit, otherwise. If Brodus is going to be 'funny" than he should be Jericho-in-WCW funny, or something. Let the "humor" come from his own mouth or promos. not a stupid costume, and an obnoxious theme.

ALso, I really, REALLY hate the fact that he's using Ernest "The Cat" Miller's entrance theme.

How unbelievably lazy is that, when his catchphrase is plastered all over it? I mean, it's only one problem out of tons of issues I take with the debut. But it's a big one.

Nope, disagree, love it and hope they run with it. I think it could be extremely amusing to see him come out like that each week but then just maul people. Don't see why he can't be intimidating with what he can do in the ring despite a fun gimmick.

I loved Brodus Clay's new gimmick! It was something different, and quite refreshing. Makes a change from the norm in WWE right now. Every other wrestler has pretty much the same attitude, and is cocky whether they're a face or a heel.

Something which annoyed me about RAW (not related to Brodus Clay) is how weak they made Kofi Kingston look with the quick squash match against Daniel Bryan. That just went toward making the Tag Team titles look even more worthless than they already did.

I watched it earlier and I didn't think it was that bad. It reminded me, in parts, of Miller, Vis, Mark Henry's Sexual Chocolate days and even the Godfather. Sure, it's not original but people have recycled succesfully before!

He looked like he was having fun with it and, like people have said, it makes a difference from Angry Wrestler #31, which most wrestlers seem to be going for.

Just watched Smackdown, and Brodus Clay is still the Funkasaurus. I really like it. Hope he keeps this gimmick for some time, as he's really entertaining.

Totally agree. It's deservedly over and a great gimmick for him. I love the idea.

The main thing is that he seems to be really enjoying it as well, and is really embracing the gimmick. That'll hopefully make him want to do it as best he can, which in turn will hopefully make for some really entertaining matches involving him.

Agreed, it makes a huge difference. If a guy believes in, and is ready to work, a gimmick, you can turn water into wine and sow's ears into silk purses. Look at the Hurricane. By the same token, a guy who doesnt give his all will fail even with a good gimmick.

The most successful "gimmick wrestler" of all time is a gimmick that's pure wrestlecrap. An undead zombieish mortuary assistant who moves slowly and worships an urn. Could have died on its ass with the wrong guy. But the guy they chose seemed to make it work for him!
