Ernest Miller Says Brodus Clay Is Ripping Off His Gimmick

Posted by Matt Boone May 22, 2012 10 Comments

Former WWE and WCW star Ernest Miller recently spoke with Inside The Ropes Radio and had the following to say about Brodus Clay ripping off his gimmick:

“I haven’t watched it. I’ve nothing against him, he’s working for a company. I feel like someone told him to do it. He’s trying to make it work.

Many fans have said he’s not as good as me and it made me popular without being on the TV show. It’s a little more than dancing.

I was an athlete, I could wrestle. WWE had so many people afraid of their jobs, they never let me develop into what it could be. People like this guy out there dancing and saying call my momma, but he’s not the original.

I could’ve made it work so in other words, I’m a little pissed off about it.”

      I agree. I always liked the Cat in WCW. I felt like he was completely wasted in WWE. In all honesty though to me Brodus Clay’s gimmick is a little more like the Flash Funk (2 Cold Scorpio) gimmick than the Cat’s gimmick.

      I know it isn’t Brodus’ fault…but goddamn I can no longer stand his Funkasaurus gimmick.

      Honestly though, who didn’t see it coming? A fresh, original idea that showed promise…before being run into the ground. That’s WWE’s M.O (eg. Nexus, CM Punk, Rock vs. Cena, etc.)

      The Funkasaurus gimmick is really getting annoying and boring. He happens to appear every single week and i dont even have to see the match, i already know he will win the match and then dance with kids. I wouldn’t mind seeing The Cat teaching Brodus how its really done.

      I find Brodus Clays gimmick to be entertaining, but it needs to be backed up by intense matches and hardwork. Squash matches are getting boring, and he has showed hardly any real talent in a wrestling ring with this gimmick. They need to learn to balance the entertainment factor, with the actual wrestling ability. They need a balance. Or else many things get old very quick.

        Now that’s the Truth an Lil Jimmy just told me he agree with you. He needs to do something proper in terms of wrestling matches, a better finisher and have a storyline.

      i think that people are thinking that just because they use the same music, that means that their gimmicks are supposed to be the same. they’re similar but not at all the same. although, it would be interesting if they brought in ernest miler as clay’s manager/mentor

      i agree. brodus is more flash funk that ernest the cat miller with a little bit of godfather thrown in there too. ernest miller was a guy who was given a chance to get over in wwe and well he never really caught on. brodus has. perhaps brodus is indeed more entertaining than the cat was. i mean you ask your average fan who ernest miller is and they probably say “who??”. That says it all really. better wrestler? does that matter when guys like hogan and warrior were once the guys who were considered “the best” . wrestling helps you get over, the fans love a great match for sure but i think in WWE, you need to more than jjust a good wrestler. Perhaps ernest miller was good in the ring, i guess he llacked the “it” factor tho.

        Racism i tell you!

      Storyline for Brodus: Someone kidnaps his mama and he goes tearing thru wwe to find out who! It’s revealed to be a ezekiel jackson (w/ teddy long) in his new gimmick of a deranged serial Milf-hunter. Brodus calls on reinforcements.. he needs the Cat as a mentor to thwart these 2. At the big ppv blowoff… the Cat turns on Brodus but Flash Funk and the Godfather make the save….

      2 days later: WHAT DO YOU MEAN I’M FIRED…??? FINE I’LL GO TO TNA!
