I think it could have worked if he wasn't an outright heel, more being someone who doesn't realise that his ideals are wrong, but does what his manager says because this world confuses him.
"Ladies and gentlemen of the WWE Universe, I'm just a Cyborg Nazi. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever."

The best part about this is Vince just silently walking out. I can just imagine getting in his limo then getting on his private jet, having the same stunned look on his face the entire way.
No pictures, no gimmicks
Magic's list of people he's f***ing with rn: John Cena (Da God) Rey Mysterio (Living Legend) Handsome Rusev (New Japan, strap him up) R-Truth (He saves every segment he's in) Charlotte (The Queen) Hiroshi Tanahashi (Da God of NJPW) Bandido (Mans is too nice) Ricky Starks (Stroke Daddy)
The fact that he actually got up and started goosestepping around the office is what gets me, just the mental image is hilarious.
I recall another writer mentioning this story and saying it was even crazier than described: he had this whole fancy proposal planned with a big projector showing images of WW2 and cities getting bombed, and while he was giving the pitch there were all these bombs and stuff going off in the background.
I swear this is basically what they did with Heidenreich. It may not have been spoken, but come on! An insane dude with a funny walk and a super German name with Heyman as his manager? They didn't SAY he was an unfrozen nazi, but damnit, thats what it was supposed to be.

why have i never heard this story before? jesus h christ, what was that guy on? i dont even know where to start on that. thawed out nazi that has trouble readjusting to life in america in 2004 so starts pro wrestling? how? what? huh?
That's the sad part. He still thinks it was a good idea. When the overseer of Goldust 1996, Race Wars, and Katie Vick, not to mention all the other racial gimmicks thinks an idea is too much, that says something about how horrible it is.
Still, the thought of Vince, mouth open and leaving in silence is one of the funniest things I can think of.

Wait wait. So is he a frozen nazi or a frozen nazi cyborg? Because the later is just redundant. I mean if you've already made him half machine and as tough as say the terminator why would you have to freeze him to have come back to....
You know what? I'm putting way more thought into this then I should.
