Kevin Thorne comes to mind. He had a great build-up and his dark, mysterious, vampire character being with Shelly Martinez(Ariel) was for sure to get him over but his character didn't go anywhere by the way WWE booked him. Kinda stupid that WWE blamed Thorne for the gimmick not getting over. Maybe if WWE put him in a feud with Kane or The Undertaker then his gimmick could've worked but instead, they had him jobbing to Stevie Richards. Really?
