    This obviously changes in the hours after RAW went off the air, but during the broadcast, I'm pretty sure I devoted more Twitter attention to Hawkins than I did to Clay. I guess I just love blazers so much that I'll mark out for anyone who wears one for their entrance attire!

    Curt Hawkins is so underrated it’s not even funny!

    • Leg on the bottom rope, again

      Was that curt Hawkins or a poor mans Shawn Michaels less the reseeding hair line!

  • Matt Scott

    I’ve liked the direction they’ve gone with Hawkins. And his in ring skills arent bad either. Still room for improvement. But hell, Zack Ryder still needs a tad seasoning and he’s current US Champion.

    Funk n the girls vs the Godfather n the Ho Train….Wreatlemania the match just be4 Rock vs Fruity Pebbles!

  • Patrick_Peralta

    • GODSENT83

      If course you didn’t, you never care for anything they do. Yet you continue to watch

    It don't matter how goofy the gimmick is, is just that he plays it so well. He's got that swag that goes with and PERSONALITY. This guy is going places am telling ya.

  • ZackPck

    Curt Hawkins is great.

    The Funkasaurus is unspeakably brilliant.

  • Andy

    What the FUNK indeed. FUNKING stupid FUNKING gimmick if you FUNKING well ask me. You FUNKERS all FUNKING know it. FUNKING Hell. I couldn't give a FUNKING FUNK about that FUNKING angle. Brodus FUNKING Clay could have been so much FUNKING more than that silly FUNKING gimmick. FUNK!

    What… if that's the type of joke they're having Hawkins make to promote this gimmick you'll be hearing Michael Cole make joke after joke after joke like that over the coming weeks, I have no doubt.

    • Matt Scott

      Yea, but that wasn’t actually funny.

    • James Diablo

      Loser^

  • Josh

  • Bradley Webber

    Chris Jericho also said that he loved! it https://twitter.com/#!/IAmJericho/status/15709913

    Regardless of whether you like the gimmick or not. He put his all into it and did a great job. I think there is more to this than we have seen, it.s going somewhere.

  • Sebastian

    Poor Brodus, who did he piss off to get stuck with that gimmick? Lol he stole The Cat’s theme too! Not Cool.

  • Nostaljack

    What if John L. has forced him to come out and do this "Funkasaurus" thing in an effort to upset the WWE fan base that clearly doesn't like him and to embarrass Clay? I mean John was already jerking us (and Clay) around with his debut date. In the end, Clay will do the "I'm mad as heck and I'm not gonna take it anymore" thing and refuse to come out as a persona. Then, he'll go "over like rover" for taking a stand against John L. I think that'd be kinda cool.

    Meh….

    At first when watching his debut I thought that it didn't work. But I rewatched it and I think it does have the potential to do well. It's good that they gave him something different than the same type of gimmick that Mark Henry is using. I thought personally he would have been similar to Goldberg where he just came to the ring in regular black trunks or something and simply destroy his opponent.

  • Ricky

    The gimmick is goofy, that's for sure, but after watching his post Raw interview and then watching his match. I must admit Brodus has the personality to make the gimmick work. There is no doubt the gimmick will get old and he'll need to find a new one. For now though the gimmick will help him get over.

  • EvilKevyn

    Anyone remember Flash Funk? Yeah, he had rhythm too. I guess…Brodus is a monster and is one minute hanging out with main eventers like Edge, Christian and Del Rio, gets a bunch of hype for his return and comes back as the fat, white version of Flash Funk. Curiously, why does everyone think Hawkins is so good? Legit question.
