How is it continuing to get worse? This is no different than what was reported earlier this week.
The previous report (by WON again) didn't mention Neville gaining a mask and being a kid's character, it mentioned Neville being "Mighty Mouse-esque" which many took as being a tough guy who's underestimated exactly like Mighty Mouse.
So yes, it is different than what was previously reported.
It's two different things here.
Actually the original was from PWInsider which means we two separate reports from highly reliable sites reporting this.
For me, it is like someone else said, what is the point of developmental if you're going to make such huge changes? Dunn and Vince are simply sabotaging their own business just to help their ego or damage Hunter's work.
Vince originally wanted to do the Mighty Mouse deal with Chris Candido way back when they brought him in.
I guess, it's true. Vince has this list of gimmicks he wants to do and he throws them at people until somebody agrees to do them or they don't have the balls to turn him down, which Candido did because he was sensitive about his size and didn't want to be the tough little guy.
Figures, a 1940's cartoon character inspires a 2010's wrestler. Cultural relevancy, thy name is Vince.
The Vaudevillans aren't exactly culturally relevant either.
If they want him to play a masked character "The Red Arrow, Adrian Neville" would be a good name, presuming the actual Red Arrows haven't copyrighted it
That would allow them to play up his high-flying daredevil style, and still sell cool merchandise.
It'd be more marketable than "Adrian Neville, Geordie Lad"
Well, DC probably has it copyrighted.
Granted, I think in general him being masked is just pointless. Regardless I can't see him ever really being anything more than a flippy midcard attraction (assuming he doesn't just get the Justin Gabriel treatment of, "Nope, you're good in the ring and have an over finisher but you're never getting on TV for no reason,"), might as well stick with the look people already know him for as opposed to just pretending like people don't know what he looks like. Unless maybe he just wears a mask covering only part of his face that's just there for decoration like Vader or something.
