    Are you really trying to play down what Bray has done after seemingly being dead and buried as a character?

    It's more impressive to me to get over with larger crowds, where it matters on a big stage, where people are expecting you to fail because of the "machine" behind you incompetency to be totally honest. From the first vignette everyone has been saying the WWE would fuck it up.

    I get you like this OC dude, but there's really no comparison man lol.

    If Orange becomes a part of AEW going forward- let's see how over he is and for how long his gimmick stays fun on a big stage. Bouncing town to town, city to city, doing your shtick to crowds of a couple of hundred people really doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of things. Otherwise you may as well just say someone like Grado because he does the same and would be "over" with your thinking.

    To be fair, this isn't the "Most Over" award either.

    I'm backing WWE's ability to make anything cool become uncool and Bray's history of fans giving up on him once he moves into having matches and feuds in this debate 100%. We're talking about a company here that missed the boat on Bayley, Aleister Black, Braun Strowman, Dean Ambrose etc and they were way easier to book than The Fiend is going to prove.
