Yeah you might be right there, the similarities to The Undertaker may have been what made WWE repackage The Ascension into a Powers of Pain tribute act, the lost of Cameron hurt the team and then the repackaging all but killed them, now they are the comedy side-kicks of Breezango. I think it’s a matter of time before Conor and Victor get future endeavoured in honesty.

The original Ascension in NXT was like a morph of the Brood and the Ministry, the Brood was another great gimmick I’d like to see re-visited.

I think a lot of the old gimmicks wouldn't work in todays world of WWE they would be too corny. 


I think a good gimmick for a wrestler these days is let them be themselves out there let them show their mic skills and wrestling in a heelish or faceish way to help get them over and they could maybe get over with a catch phrase (Daniel Brian) or just with pure wrestling (AJ Styles).
