You're right - Lance's new character could go the way of Wacky Big Show. It will probably end up along side Norman Smiley's "screaming hard core" gimmick in that it will get him mid-card over and never go any further.
I don't think Lance's new-found charisma is "forced" though. He seems more like the dork who is way too excited about being accepted and takes his goofiness a little too far.

I hope that they bring Scotty 2 Hotty back so that we can see Lance Storm do the Worm. Heck, they could redo the whole Too Cool thing by bringing Rikishi to RAW and replacing Grandmaster Sexay with Grandmaster Storm.

It would be nice to see Lance try this for a couple of months, then start to snap like Chris Benoit, turn on Goldust and turn into a total bad ass. Might turn his character into a Chris Jericho type, goofy but still capable of dishing out a beating.

That's the best idea I've heard so far. No bogus charimsa, no Goldust, no bringing back Dawn Marie (which seems to resurface every now and then)...I could see Storm and Christian working very well as a follow-up, not unlike Benoit and Guerrero last summer.

I've been saying from the beginning that I think Storm will eventually snap. Seeing how goofy his current character is confirms that belief. Storm himself has been saying that the angle is leading somewhere good (but giving no indication where that would be) and I don't think that the current stage of the gimmick is the end.
