It’s easy to parody. As seriously as some fans take it, wrestling is something that can easily be mocked. It is a bunch of people doing a bunch of completely insane things a lot of the time but when you are inside the wrestling bubble, it works out rather well. However, if you change things up a little bit and take a look from outside the bubble, you can have a lot of laughs. That is what some wrestlers are hoping to do.
Back in July, the Good Brothers (Doc Gallows/Karl Anderson) made their Impact Wrestling debuts as a big featured attraction at Slammiversary. The team was one of the biggest prizes after so many wrestlers were released from WWE back in April. As a result, Impact Wrestling suddenly had some big names on their hands with a lot of entertainment potential. Some of that potential will be on display, albeit with nothing taking place in the ring.
The Good Brothers, along with Rocky Romero and NZO (formerly Enzo Amore) are working on a new series called The Gimmicks, an animated series based on Talk N Shop A Mania. The series will be animated in the same style as South Park and focuses on wrestling. There is no word on when the show will air or where it will air, but a trailer has been released showing Triple H and Vince McMahon.
The snark is high with this one. Check out the trailer for the series:
Opinion: This is a situation where I would need to see how it goes before writing it off. The problem with something like this is it could get really old in a hurry if the main focal point is taking shots at WWE. The Good Brothers are funny, but they are going to need more than just a bunch of jokes about how horrible and out of touch WWE is. Maybe they have more than that, but this isn’t exactly the most inspiring trailer.
What do you think of the trailer? Will you watch the series? Let us know in the comments below.
