|Ho, ho, ho, it's Brodus Clay|

I'm pretty sure Brodus Clay will get his Christmas wish before the holiday actually gets here, but I figured I'd write about it anyway. I think the big man simply wants to be on TV. For weeks, vignettes played teasing his return to Raw. Then on the expected date of his arrival, it was postponed. Then again the next week. And the week after that. I think all told, he's been delayed three weeks in a row now. At least they're turning into a bit of a storyline with Raw GM John Laurinaitis saying he wants Brodus to come in anger and ready to go. I've been assuming they were just delaying his start due to bad timing of the show and not being prepared, maybe I'm wrong.
I'm interested to see what they do with Brodus Clay once he's back on TV full time again. I thought his run on NXT was good and even though he didn't win the competition, he got a pretty sweet gig on SmackDown!, playing the role of Alberto Del Rio's bodyguard. But he wasn't around for long and was somewhat forgotten about on WWE programming. I assumed that they sent him back to FCW for retooling, and maybe that's where he's been.
So if the WWE books him properly and uses him the right way, Brodus Clay could be a top contender in the next couple of years. I don't think he should be world champion anytime soon, but I do think the guy deserves a shot. He breaks that cookie cutter mold that most WWE/NXT guys have. And speaking of that, please bring back Husky Harris. He was one of my favorites on NXT.
Here's to hoping Brodus Clay makes his return to the ring in time for Christmas and dishes up some seasons beatings to WWE roster. Your thoughts? Post them here, or like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to YouTube.
