Believe it or not, there was talk this week of turning Brodus Clay back into the original monster and dropping the Funkasaurus gimmick.

The timeframe isn't expected to be immediate as I heard there was talk of doing it towards the end of the summer/beginning of the fall, around the time the new WWE Studios film "No One Lives" (featuring Clay in a supporting role) debuts at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Many of the producers feel the Funkasaurus gimmick has run its course and he is over enough with the audience where they can turn him and repackage him before the gimmick now is completely dead. There were also plans pitched to remove him from TV for a few weeks or develop the turn with gimmick progression by having him "snap" after matches.
