    I have a question, bros. What was Drew Gulak's gimmick in 2017? I guess it was so good to win the thing, but I have never heard of the guy...

    He did a gimmick on 205 Live where he campaigned for improvements to the cruiserweight division and gave powerpoint presentations on new rules that should be introduced. Little bit silly but it got good heat on that show.

    Call it knee-jerk after last night, but this is sealed and done unless they majorly fuck something up.

    I'm almost certain they'll make that uncool by September, but there's hardly any competition for this award so he might win.

    Wikipedia says...

    A gimmick is a novel device or idea designed primarily to attract attention or increase appeal, often with little intrinsic value.
    Now... the 24/7 Championship should be a freakin' contender for this.

    Spoiler:

    Yea... Bray's probably gonna do it

    2019 Gimmick of the year award?!



    Bray has done an amazing job as the "Fiend" and it's arguably the hottest thing in wrestling right now I'd say. Early days though, I guess.

    Other mentions = I'd say Shane, hated as the "Best in the World" and that's the job of a heel. Bryan as the planets champion I've also enjoyed.

    Not too many that instantly stand out which is pretty sad. Good gimmicks are pretty rare now.

    Velveteen Dream is still killing it in his gimmick

    And Lacey Evans gimmick and character work is top notch

    Orange Cassidy would be up there for me. Someone that's proven to have gotten over because of their act and fans stand by him a lot longer than they will with Bray.

    Great shouts dude.

    Lacey Evans is an actual character in often a very bland and generic world of female wrestling.

    Gotten over where?

    I don't even know where he actually wrestle's outside of that AEW appearance. Is he full time in Japan or something? Literally have no idea.

    I mean- if we're saying someone like Orange Cassidy- I guess R Truth is in with a shout for his gimmick which has had a bit of a rebirth under the 24/7 Championship.

    Orange Cassidy has usually wrestled for places like PWG, Beyond, and GCW. I’m sure there are others but those are the main promotions I know of that he’s performed for.

    Bray is probably a favorite for this but I’ll second the 24/7 championship.

Mocking them to make you feel less of a geek for being on a geek on a wrestling forum is lame. If you want to not read their posts, I can fix that for you.

    I've heard of PWG, not the other two unfortunately. Indy over at best by the sounds.

    Indy over at best is more impressive to me than being kinda over in WWE where you have a machine behind you pushing your shit and making glossy vignettes for you but then after a few matches people start not to care anymore. OC works different crowds in different towns in different promotions and gets over.
