Discuss wrestlers who had great gimmicks that were either cut too early or that were petered out because they remained stagnant.

I think the obvious one is Muhammad Hassan who was one of those heels that were actually making sense. I remember he drew great heat from the crowd, and it's a damn shame that his time was cut short due to unfortunate timing of the airing of Smackdown and the bombing incident in London.

My own personal pick though is Matt Hardy's 'I Will Not Die' character. Sure he kept the catchphrase throughout the rest of his WWE run, but the fire that made him so compelling against Edge went out after that.

For some reason or another, I was a huge fan of Kevin Thorn. I always wished he would have had a better run in WWE, because his character was pretty cool.

Kinda surprised no one said Taker's American Badass character.

I mean, lasting three years kinda makes it short lived.

The Boogeyman didn't seem that short lived. Maybe cause he'd return every few years for a short while. Funny

I couldn't see him getting past a gimmick character, however I did enjoy seeing him attack everyone with worms. Also Undertaker's story in SVR 09 had an awesome ending cause of him.
