    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.

    I like to vote Bray but,

    R Truth turned what could of been huge flop in the 24/7 Championship and has made it great.

    I was right that they would make Fiend uncool before the year was out.

    I still really like Orange Cassidy for this award now he's getting big reactions on a national level, even just for cameo appearances. I think Darby's act has gotten over really well as well on AEW TV. Does le champion count?

    I’m certainly digging Le Champion more than List of Jericho so far.

    Now that The Fiend has quickly lost a fuckload of appeal and potential, I’m leaning towards Orange Cassidy in terms of creativity, coolness, overness and freshness. It just depends on AEW picking their spots to use him and not overexpose. His random cameo in the Bucks/PnP brawl wasn’t a good sign IMO.

    Does David Starr count? His entire anti-corporate thing has made me fall in love with him, ESPECIALLY the OTT stuff, but most of that literally is just who he is so I dunno if I can nominate him haha

    If I need to go with someone else I'm going with Le Champion boomer Jericho. It seems like every time we've seen him since 2016 he's done something new and incredible, I'm buzzing to see what he turns into a meme next
