RedRooster Posted February 9, 2021 Share Posted February 9, 2021 When AEW started, The Dark Order was just plain bad. Grayson and Uno were good wrestlers, but the entire gimmick stank. Rather than scrap the whole idea, AEW persisted with it and they suddenly became one of the best acts to watch in AEW. You had Brodie Lee, the bullying leader, and the vulnerable but lovable underlings trying to keep him happy. Even after Brodie's tragic death, they've continued to shine, with "he said yes!" one of the funniest moments I've seen in modern wrestling. It got me thinking, what other acts or wrestlers have managed to do this? I'm discounting gimmick changes here (eg. Husky Harris to Bray Wyatt etc) - what other examples are there of a gimmick or character utterly tanking before somehow becoming good?
