I was thinking about this last night and figured I'd make a thread on it. We've seen wrestlers adopt parts of older wrestlers characters or movesets over time (Miz with the figure four. Dolph with the Fameasser, etc etc). But is it truly possible in your mind to let a younger wrestler take over a gimmick from an older one? I'm not saying say Goldust giving the entire Goldust character to a new guy, but lets say Goldust taking a newbie under his wing, teaching him the ropes and then on screen we see the new guy adopting more and more traits of his mentor until he is working a similar if not the same gimmick under a different name. WWE did this with some success with Droz and the Road Warriors back in the 90's (mainly because of Hawk's drug problems and WWE wanting to keep the team together, so they needed a third guy). I remember Droz being fairly over as a road warrior. Same with Crush in Demolition. Granted there has also been failures like Ted Dibiase Jr. Do you think this would be possible in today's WWE? Or is the crowd too jaded to accept it? Full on or near full on gimmick inheritance, discuss it?
