According to Reports, WWE May Get Rid of Brodus Clay's Funkasaurus Gimmick

I recently wrote an article predicting that the self-professed "Intellectual Savior of the Masses," Damien Sandow, would possibly transform the only living, breathing, rompin', stompin' funkasaurus in captivity (Brodus Clay) into the juggernaut that fans expected him to be when he re-debuted.

It now looks like my prediction isn't as far-fetched as it once seemed.

According to F4WOnline (h/t WrestlingInc.), there has been some talk of getting rid of Clay's funkasaurus gimmick. Evidently, Clay's role in the WWE Studios horror film No One Lives may have something to do with it.

A synopsis of the film can be found on Here is the premise:  

A ruthless criminal gang takes a young couple hostage and goes underground to an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere. When the captive girl is killed, the tables are unexpectedly turned and the gang finds itself outsmarted by an urbane and seasoned killer determined to ensure that no one lives.

Sounds interesting, but how will the film affect Clay's gimmick?

Regardless, if WWE does in fact get rid of Clay's funkasaurus gimmick, it would probably be an improvement. The funkasaurus gimmick has undoubtedly run its course.

How much longer can Clay, Naomi and Cameron do the same exact thing every night? The only thing that changes is the color of their attire.

If the gimmick stays, perhaps they should change their routine up a bit. Instead of doing the same dance moves to the same music every night, how about getting some new dance moves and new music from time to time?

What do you think? Do you want WWE to drop Brodus Clay's funkasaurus gimmick, or do you love it? Share your thoughts!
