What's up everyone. We are doing a contest with T.I. and we are giving away $1200 a day for the next 10 days. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.

So does anyone here actually enjoy The New Day gimmick?

Not just the individual wrestlers themselves, but the current gimmick as it has been shown to us. You got Kofi "dropping bars", Big E with his towel and Xavier repeating himself. Do you do it for The Day or are you still hoping this is leading to something more serious?

    I don't understand what the gimmick is. I think it's kinda dumb but whatever.

    while we are on gimmicks....

    in this period of "sports entertainment"

    gimmicks should be non existant

    let them turn thier personality up to over 9000

    the realism of the character is what has been

    proven to work.....

    thats sort of what WCW did and we all know how Vince feels about using WCW's ideas...

    This is pretty much what Kofi has done. Big E doing voices n' 🤬 ain't helping matters though.

    just smh every time i think of how they didnt even TRY using big e with that "i need 5" 🤬 , the 🤬 was the purpose of puttin that in his theme?

    I have low expectations for it but let see where it goes

    Yea, they watered down the 🤬 outta Big E. They got this 🤬 look like a big ole smiling chuck and jiving goofball. Kofi Kingston too.

    I think pope from TNA, Lashley and R-truth had the best in ring personality that just came off natural and not forced. I'm glad I stopped supporting this show. I don't see how 🤬 is paying 9.99 to support racism. I'll save my money and stream online.

    what's the story behind new day anyway? what's the reason for these 🤬 being so happy? how they go from that new nation angle in the summer to this 🤬 ? the fans aren't stupid. they know this gimmick is 🤬 and the three parties deserve better

    I rewatched money in the bank from this year, and the crowd was going nuts for the brief 3 seconds kofi was at the top of the ladder touching the briefcase. you know what that tells me? even with his lack of character development, the fans still want him to succeed. ziggler doesn't have a story either, but he busted his ass for so long and the fans got behind him regardless of how terribly he's been booked. you think if kofi was to cut a promo, no smiles, no hand clap, talking about how he's tired of behind held down and under achieving, showed a bit more edge, the crowd wouldn't get behind him? big e should be booked as a monster, but they rather joke about how much he sweats. xavier woods could be the 2003 heel teddy long of this faction, ethering the crowd and creative weekly, pointing out the racial stereotype gimmicks the wwe has pushed pushed out over the decades and how the crowd eats it all up. white people hate the truth so of course this would get him heat

    but no, they rather these 🤬 keep dancing and clapping while getting booed the 🤬 out of the building

    TNA kinda already did it.

    Kinda.

    I dont like Xavier Woods thats what I dont like, dude seems too white washed or whatever you wanna call it.

    I honestly hope there is a heel turn in the works, they've worked house shows as both heels & faces so it looks like the WWE has already tested both sides for the stable.

    They not getting over with the fans right now, getting booed during live events

    So they might as well go on and make that turn.

    Duke is a nerd, which is fine because I am one too but it's not "cool", like it doesn't translate well to TV.

    I think a heel turn would probably expose him terribly, I don't see him pulling it off.

    CM Punk and Daniel Brian are nerds, but they're white, so its ok, but a black man can't be a nerd for some reason and still be cool to some people. "Too white washed" or "Cornball".

    I think if he was a nerd that was still an alpha male in terms of I can 🤬 whatever 🤬 comes my way and "a legit tough guy", then the nerd attachment or white washiness wouldn't even be a factor imo /rant

    Anyways never seen the gimmick yet so I cant tell ya.
