WWE is no stranger to coming up with entertaining whodunnit scenarios once in a while.
WWE managed to stretch that one out for nearly a year, playing with fan expectations and getting Austin somehow more over than he was.
The man formerly known as Pete Dunne is an exceptional in-ring performer, there is no doubt about that. Just look at this image.
But his entire gimmick was that he beat up people. Sure, the Bruiserweight was cool from an indie stand-point, but WWE is all about flashy characters & catchphrases so he was re-packaged as Butch.
With WWE going so far as to put out "Missing Person" posters for him, it's going to be interesting to see where they take this story. If done right, it could make Butch a huge star. If not, well...
