Characters Welcomed: 17 WWE Gimmicks in the Modern Era

*Warning: Some of the ideas presented here are going to be controversial. They are intended to be controversial and inflammatory for the sake of drawing attention to the WWE, similar to the Attitude Era that got people to tune in to watch. If you are easily offended, you should probably not read this article. Also, I do not hold any of the views personally of any gimmick in this article. They are merely suggestions.  

(Yeah, that'll save me.)

By now, you probably know that the biggest story coming out of Raw is by far the debut of the Funkasaurus, Brodus Clay. I have to admit, after having a few days to digest it and watch Brodus give his first interview at, it's really starting to grow on me. He has the charisma to pull it off, and if this was a punishment for the big man, it's going to backfire in a major way.  

But, I actually believe that this unexpected event in the WWE is going to have major repercussions going forward. 

With the WWE looking for anything to create a buzz, the shockwaves this new gimmick is sending through the wrestling world has got to entice the WWE to try stretching the boundaries of their creativity.  Which means, we may be seeing more characters emerge in the WWE product.

If that is the case, I would like to submit just a few (17) ideas for characters and gimmicks that the WWE could use that would reach certain segments of America and the entire audience as a whole.

I don't usually fantasy book, because it's stupid. But, I'm running out of article ideas...and this is what came out.
