Honestly I think this will be better for Clay in the long run honestly. I mean think about it:

Huge, menacing guys who are made out to be monster heels: Dime a dozen. We've seen it a thousand times and the guys NEVER get over. Vladmir Kozlov? Ezekiel Jackson? Chris Masters? All big guys who had buildup, went on loooong drawn out squash streaks where they couldn't be touched. And guess what, the fans got bored and didn't give a flying f*ck.

Big, lovable guys who show charisma and seem like they're genuinely enjoying their roles? We've seen it, but it's much more rare. Rikishi; one of the most popular guys of the attitude era and despite his dancing, goofy gimmick he was still seen as a serious opponent. He got over with the fans, had a good time and despite NEVER winning the WWE title or having a memorable run with ANY title, we have more memories of him than we do of any menacing monster heel of the past decade.

The different is that Fatu can dance, at least convincingly. Clay just dresses in oldschool red and has two hot black chicks helping him. The next Mabel?

I like the new Brodus clay. WWE needs to go back to having gimmicks again. Seems like every wrestler is generic these days. This reminds me of old school wrestling with outlandish characters. Seriously, how many scary big fat guys do we see in the WWE that go nowhere? Time to switch it up

Agree with Screw. There's no gimmicks/gimmick names anymore.

Old School:
Rock
Stone Cold
Triple H
Undertaker
Kane
Big Show
Road Dogg
X-Pac
Chyna
Ultimate Warrior
British Bulldog
Edge
Christian
Big Bossman
Godfather
Goldust
Razor Ramon
Diesel
Scotty Too Hotty
Grandmaster Sexay

THOSE were wrestler names. They were gimmicks, nicknames...like superheroes

Now there's:

John Cena
Randy Orton
Dolph Ziggler
Daniel Bryan
Zack Ryder
Ezekial Jackson
Kofi Kingston
Evan Bourne
John Morrison
Wade Barrett
David Otunga
Justin Gabriel
Heath Slater

No gimmicks...Just plain old (Insert first name) (Insert last name). The only one who really does the whole "old school wrestler" thing is Miz. He's the only one besides Ryder that has a real catchphrase. And the only ring names nowadays are pretty much CM Punk, Miz and R-Truth.

Those in charge have no idea how to book strong heels anymore. Apparently, they dont want the heels to be too "scary" to the kiddies, like heels where back in the days when wrestling was marketed to adults. Instead, we get smarmy heels like Alberto Del Rio, guys who look like they could get beat up by members of the audience. Wrestling needs dominant heels for the faces to play off of.

Kane is portraying Palpatine role to Cena's Anakin perfectly.

Daniel Bryan Danielson is portraying a smartass heel perfectly.

WWE has built on Johnny Ace for so long the storyline is starting to unfold now that Johnny starts to lose his cool he has kept since his first on-air appearance as an Executive VP. Well-written on this part.

I'm thinkin my girl AJ is gonna turn heel along with Bryan. Remember before he went out there on Smackdown he asked her "how much do you love me?" then she comes down there and ends up getting in Show's way which ended the match in a no-contest. I'm guessing he asked her to take the dive for him to keep his title

Brodus Clay's "Funkasaurus" gimmick is pretty entertaining, but that still can't hide the fact that he himself can't really dance, and Earnest Miller is gonna call Brodus' mama that he wants his catchphrase back.

Yokuzuna was very underrated heel. I love his matches with Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Lex Luger, and the Undertaker.
