    *NEW AWARD* 2017 Worst Gimmick Of The Year Ongoing Discussion

    Use this thread to discuss some of the worst characters and gimmicks in wrestling so far this year. Once again, sounds like another Bray Wyatt award.

    I'm sure it's become a cliche to say at this point, but Wyatt's gimmick would be great without all the scary, spooky, weird and whacky Wyatt magic.

    He'd be much more effective as a Manson-like cult leader.

    Re: *NEW AWARD* 2017 Worst Gimmick Of The Year Ongoing Discussion

    1. Kevin Owens ("The New Face of America") - extremely uninspiring and lazy gimmick. And when you get a lazy gimmick to a guy that can fall into stints of being lazy himself, of course you're going to get something that doesn't work at all. I've always liked Kevin but since his run as the Universal Champion I haven't really been that into him and now I don't mind skipping anything he does because now he's just there.

    2. Jinder Mahal ("Modern Day Maharaja/anti-American") - railed about him in the Ray Leppan award thread, don't need to rail on it here and get my blood pressure up more than it is.

    3. Corey Graves (Shitstirrer) - I probably hate this more than most people but his involvement with these couple of angles (no pun intended) have been atrocious. Him being a focal point for Cass and Enzo's break-in was such a stretch and and made everything before the actual turn such a mess. The Angle stuff I can't imagine will have a good payoff next week. I don't understand why he's so involved with this, it's never explained why he has all these insider connections and is able to pull leverage and get tapes, the crowd doesnt care about the guy doing heel commentary being so involved, and the commentators don't even care about his shady behavior

    This was a hard one and I'm sure I've missed some big ones. Yoshitatsu still doing Bullet Club Hunter stuff is very very bad. The little I've seen of Impact and I was over Laurel Van Ness' shtick rather quickly. Erick Rowan during the Luke Harper mini feud was very terrible but I don't see that getting heavily featured again. Like I said, I'm sure there's loads more and I am missing a big one for some reason.

    I think Deputy Dunne stands out in a promotion like Progress, but I don't think he was too bad of a gimmick like everyone is making him out to be.

    It's way too early to be nominating him based on one appearance. At least say you've watched FCP or ATTACK and gained a proper opinion on him

    Im going off his gimmick. He may be good but having a gimmick where you spoil fun or something is a negative. He isn't my main choice, that's mahal and maharaja, but he is contention.

    Re: *NEW AWARD* 2017 Worst Gimmick Of The Year Ongoing Discussion

    I mean there's just so many bad characters in WWE right now:

    - Bayley the loser
    - Angle the incompetent General Manager
    - Owens the face of America
    - Mahal the Modern Day Maharaja
    - Zayn the irritating overthinking nice guy
    - English the cry baby
    - Rowan the mask maker
    - Emmalina the instagram poster
    - Lana the dancer
    - Tamina the wrestler

    Take your pick

    No offense, but this sounds more like you getting by worked by the gimmick than the gimmick being actively bad.

    yh reading back it does sound like that but it's not that. I don't want to see it ever. It may turn out to be good but at this moment it's not.

    Surprised not to see their names brought up here yet, even by me! I switch off immediately when they have a promo or Mike has one of his mediocre matches and just flick through twitter until their segment is over. It's such a limited gimmick, every promo is the same, power of loves this power of love that. Given he lost to Sami Zayn pretty comfortably at Battleground, maybe WWE have given up on it in record time.

    I'm surprised WWE are already down on Bennett. He doesn't do flips, which makes him a damn good storyteller.

    I've said this before but the gimmick is only made worse by the constant reminder that he's not an accomplished pro wrestler but instead a former Hallmark store employee.

    Bennett is alright and really should be better with the people he has worked with in his career. Judging from his gimmick its clear that, he was only brought in for Maria. This gimmick is for her, mike will probably be a mid carder but he will not go above this level.

    At least Bennett has a damn catchy song.

    Mike Bennett is the new version of Eric Escobar.
