    I have vague memories of Gulak's anti-high flying gimmick, but boy does he stick out in this list of past winners.

    Given more time and keeping up the consistency, I’m liking “God’s Favourite Champion” and “The Redeemer” Miro.

    I do think that Roman is a shout for this again so far this year. The character isn't stale at all, and in fact with crowds back I can only see it excelling more.

    100% this for me. Roman continues to be great but I love everything about Miro since becoming "final boss" of the Best Friends feud.

    I sort of like the gimmick too, much more interesting than 'King Corbin', but what match/feud is it building to?

    Owens vs Corbin is my guess. We have seen Owens lighten up a bit towards Corbin (especially the lady Smackdown) and I think they’ll team for a bit and as soon as Corbin is back on his feet he’ll attempt to stab Owens in the back. They could try to subvert expectations and have Owens know that Corbin was using him all along, but it’s too early to tell.

    Well, this will make Owens look very stupid.

    I also think the match/feud for Corbin is Owens, but given that this is WWE, I don't trust them at all. I expect something to go wrong like Corbin getting back the stupid crown...

    I think the line in that would be is that Owens is ultimately the one playing the prank on Corbin, if they did go down that road. So he was just messing with him and pretending to care the whole time. If they’re trying to turn Owens into an Austin-like character, that would go some way in achieving that. But that could be me expecting too much of them.

    To go back to your original point, I am enjoying Corbin in this gimmick. I think he’s playing it well, although anything does beat the shitty King Corbin gimmick,

    I wasn't a big Rusev guy in WWE, but Miro the Redeemer is genius

    Is it too early to hand this to The Way or Dexter Lumis in general? Maybe even CAMERON GRIMES!

    He’s still my #1, but creeping up behind him lately is Eddie Kingston with the gimmick of “Eddie Kingston”.
