Yup, it's the rat guy. He caught a lucky break being separated from that!
I love how the other guy does that lighting thing in his hand during their intro (not sure if they did it last night). It's very cool. they'd look great in a large arena. Provided they give them both better individual names.
The light thing is different, but its pretty naff. Hey looked at me and my neat trick involving my sleeve and a penlight torch....how bad ass am I ?
But yeah, the intro is great, its just not backed up with anything remotely different once the bell rings. Its like if The Brood came out, all dark and vampirious, done their blood drinking gimmick, lights go on and its typical match 101 time and no blood bath is delivered.
I keep thinking its like an updated version of the old "Crazy" gimmick, where the guy comes out all batshit crazy eyed and then once the bell rings its pretty much stock standard wrestling match. Use to annoy the hell out of me when that would happen.
Ive been thinking its been ages since the pre match ref checks for hidden objects routine resulted in any one being found to have a hidden weapon tucked away.
I mean, if someone came in and spent a month or so pulling all manner of trick out of their boot, knee/ elbow pad etc, leading into a tainted victory... well then a somewhat decent angle could be made of various refs trying to "disarm" the guy, hell even a few planted "Fans' could get in on the action and be called in to check the guy over before the bell.
Sure, its not original in the least ( Eddie Gilbert done that very thing in pretty much every promotion he was in), but it would give the pre match pat down a purpose... other than the 11th hour booking changes being relayed to wrestlers.
Ok, so Ive had too much free time of late. Fan booking is still cool....RIGHT!!!?
