So looks like Husky Harris is bringing back the Godwin gimmick eh? I liked the vignette, apparently it became the #1 trend on twitter worldwide, for whatever that is worth. Seems like this team has a bit of a conflict of interest with Zeb Colter & and Jack Swagger though.

They seem like they might have some bite to them, but I am sure they will be booked midcard tag division, which is to say no PPV unless they get a breif push to feed whichever team will be fed to The Shield.

REALLY liked the promo video that aired tonight. Creepy as shit (which will really resonate with anyone outside of the South considering everyone considers us all redneck hillbilly bums a la Swamp People, Duck Dynasty, Honey Boo Boo, Deliverance, Fox News, etc) and really showed off Wyatt's distinct, Jake Roberts-esque smooth talking, quietly menacing vocal patterns that add up to a strong mic presence.

I hope they give him a serious chance.

I haven't heard of these guys prior to this promo, but it looks promising. It looks very interesting and pretty eerie. Hopefully they can deliver with this. I don't want another wrestler to show up just to lose to Sheamus and Orton. Or a team to show up to lose to Brodus and Tensai. Or after this promo for them to be faces who are ass-kissers. I just want them to be who they are in this promo. Weird, out there, looking out for themselves, creepy. Whether they're heel, face, tweener, I'd prefer they make them a heel I can truly hate. I end up liking most of the heels more than the faces lol.

just glad that he's going to come up with the gimmick he's had in NXT rather than having to reinvent himself.

while Big E's only real change is from face to heel, not many guys seem to be given a chance to work the gimmick they have there when they come up to Raw/SD.

that it's not just Wyatt, but the whole clan should be good; I have enjoyed the work the three have done in NXT. my only worry is that the main roster is becoming top heavy with heels.

I'll be interested to see how this pans out on the main roster, the gimmick seems to work for Bray Wyatt but not sure how it will translate to the mainstream, nor am I sure how the other two will fare, but end of the day if nothing else they add some more depth to the growing tag-division.

Brodie Lee is a pretty good indy wrestler, Bray Wyatt is Husky Harris of nxt fame, and Erick Rowan is just some guy...

I'm just glad that they're gonna keep the gimmick intact. As I stated before, I've always wondered how the Cape Fear-like gimmick Waylon Mercy had would've done if it hadn't been for Dan Spivey's injury cutting it short. If it wasn't for The Shield being that dominant thus far, I would've bet on The Wyatt Family winning the tag team titles within 6 to 8 months. If they take their time establishing them, we could be in for a fun ride.

Watching them on NXT I didn't think they even stood out that much in front of a few hundred fans.

Bray is OK at best and his two cronies are generic big men with little personality.

Once they debut i'm sure the reception they get will be a deafening silence.

the point of the collective is that Bray is the main man; having either of the other two show any kind of personality would detract from the "aura" of Wyatt.

I, too, would expect them to come out to silence, purely because it fits the gimmick. the idea that the crowd don't want to cheer, but don't know whether they should boo adds a menace to the group for me.

agree with EH, if not for the Shield, am sure they would be Tag Team champions by the end of the year. as it is, they may have to wait a while.

Getting no reaction would be terrible. These guys aren't good enough to get a "shocked" silence, and a non reaction would make them look like jobbers.

Having the two big men be robotic drones would fit the gimmick, given that Bray Wyatt's gimmick is that of a preacher/ cult leader villain and his disciples would be the sheep being driven to obey orders and that's it. Come to think of Iit, the vignette that aired Monday had one of them with a sheep mask ok.
