I'd give it a chance.
I think that this gimmick could actually go over
Joey Splashwater? Lmao.
Surfer gimmick....pure genius........Surfers are really hardcore & aggressive
Too bad Sharkboy isn't in WWE, they could've had a feud.
I had no idea that surfers were seen as aggressive lmao
I think they are trying to succeed with Sami Callihan that they failed with Tyler Reks. If you don't remember Tyler Reks had a surfer gimmick when he first debuted. Maybe Callihan's finisher is like a surfboard shit or something like that.
D'Z will mark. He loves surfing.
I don't mind the gimmick, I think Sami can make it work instead of the crazy gimmick that Ambrose has, but the only problem I have is the name. Splashwater? Is he a wrestler, or did someone rename their Magikarp on a pokemon game, and they decided to name him through that.
Joey Splashwater? Lame. That gave me this odd reaction: +
Ah well, it's Callihan so will deal with it and hope it does go over well, but sheesh.
...Joey....Splashwater? Change the fucking name, and that gimmick will be horrible as hell.
Surf...su... surfer? A surfer? Eh really a guy who surfs? Named after a water park? Crayo you liked this kid didn't you?
Sami Callihan looks like a surfer? I did not know that.
Also, surfers are aggressive? I did not know that either.
Oh, HHH, enlighten us more often, please!
I want to give this a chance since it seems like something different. I mean, I've seen a couple of Sami's promos before and know he can play the psychotic side of a person real well but we also have a handful of psychos already (Ambrose, the Wyatt Family, etc.) and maybe a surfer gimmick will be something different.... Especially an 'aggressive' surfer. Maybe he can use a surf board as a weapon when the referee isn't looking. Sure, it's not exactly a sledge hammer or brass knuckles, but it can probably put an eye out and get the job done.
But I can't take it seriously .... Not when the guy's name is Joey Splashwater. That surname makes me think he'll be booked as a lame ass for sure. Just call him Sami Callahan. There's nothing wrong with that name, especially since there's few things more awesome than having the last name of "Dirty Harry" Harry Callahan.
Sami doesn't even need to be a psycho, that gimmick is dull he's better as a social outcast.
Surfer > Cena's character or straight edge
Replace the skateboard with a surfboard.
