Wrestlezone’s Top 10: Breakthrough Stars of 2012

Josh Isenberg

Number 10: Brodus Clay

Brodus Clay

There may have not been more arguments and discussions about a superstar this year than Brodus Clay. As he debuted neared, many people expected a wrecking machine, a monster, and a dominant force in the WWE. Instead, a Disco ball hung high, with two dancers getting their funk on. Clay appeared in a jump suit, a hat, and a cheesy grin on his face. People were in shock, but a few months went by and his song began to be catchy. Clay has the personality, but his character has taken a backseat as of late. There is no arguing that the buzz around him was unbelievable. He certainly broke through in the early parts of 2012, almost with a United Sattes Championship victory. We are not sure where this character will go from here, but everybody (at one point of another) danced the dance and sang to their mommas.
