It was sweet gimmick and shouldn't have been included in the bad gimmicks montage at the Raw X show. Neither should have Dean Douglas for that matter. Blue Blood Helmsley was more cheesy than both of these gimmicks but you know why it wouldn't have gotten included(though that was still worlds more entertaining than current HHH. Still.

I hold the view that '95 is really an underrated year. Sure there was alot of bad(Mabel), but there was some pretty groundbreaking stuff too which will probably remain underappreciated thanks to the bad(Mabel). There was Mercy, Goldust the first open homosexual, HBK "fainting", Diesel's semi-shoot tweener promo(best WWF promo ever up to that point, IMO, atleast for the 80s-90s)which came following the WWF debut of the table spot. Then a few months after '95 came the NachoMan/Huckster stuff, the No Holds barred match and ofcourse, "Austin 3:16". All this stuff was really a good precursor for the "Attitude" boom IMO.
Not too bad a season at all.
Sorry for rambling off and hijacking the topic here.

Would you like a Bonk on the head? BONK! BONK! BONK!

Doesn't this Gimmick post post up about every 4 months on here? Seriously, wasn't the last one September or about that time. Yes, the gimmick was good.

What if WWE were to bring back this gimmick, but with a different wrestler? It was a great gimmick, ahead of the times by about 3 years. But he was only around for, what, 6 months? Who, besides those of us who really loved the gimmick, would know it's a re-hashed gimmick with a different wrestler? Or maybe bring him back as a short-term manager to a new wrestler who has the same gimmick or is Waylon Mercy Jr. After a few months, drop the manager and the Jr and Waylon Mercy is back in WWE.

That's not a bad idea... the question being which wrestler should take the gimmick. It probably wouldn't work for an established WWE wrestler like Val Venis. I'd suggest one of the OVW guys.

Rico would be great, but he's already been run in the ground, and would need a few months removed from the WWE to be re-introduced. Maybe Cade or Jindrak, if they decide to push one of them solo. Maybe Nick Dinsmore?

I don't watch Smackdown- could Matt Morgan pull it off? His size could make the character that much scarier, if done right.

Just some suggestions.

Sean O'Haire'd be a fairly good choice for a Waylon Mercy-like character. He's not exactly high-profile right now so a change wouldn't do him much harm, and he's already playing a slightly crazy sort of guy...

The Jackel is in NWA-TNA doing his ECW gimmick. In ECW he worked for TNN, being the heel, against Heyman working for ECW, being the face. I think that is how that went.

Now in TNA, he is Don Callis, who works for NWA. And Erik Watts is playing the "Heyman role" as he works for TNA.

I have heard that, of all people, Bull Buchanan was supposed to have a version of this gimmick before his B-Squared character. The words "Waylon Mercy" weren't used in the tidbit that I read (and I can't remember where it came from), but a description of a "Max Cady in Cape Fear" type character was.

With Sean O'Haire in midcard purgatory, is it safe to say the Waylon Mercy Curse has claimed another victim?

I still don't think many of the people here understand this whole Austin/WWE mess. Austin wasn't a "broken down horse." This isn't like Joe Montana still playing football, because Austin was still in the prime of his career when he left.
