1.)  How viable is this superstar?
I find him to be pretty viable. He is in my opinion in the middle of the pack from V7.

2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight?

This thing is what EVERY action deck dreams of. Stops Not on My Broadcast TB and stuffs Old School Wrestling Match TB. Ummm yes please!

3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?
I have never gotten around to building him.

4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual

Here can hold his own in every format he's legal for. I like him in VAA where Action reversals are not as popular for some reason.

5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?
Really fun, different from a lot of other decks I've seen. I'm hoping to give him a tournament run soon.

Superstars like Bray remind me of the old "turtle" decks in the infancy of Raw Deal. Strap the Throwback ECW title on him with the ECW allegiance and you have a -2 for damage out of the gate. Cards like Rolling Takedown, Knee to the Gut, Clumsy Opponent all start to sound like viable packs again.
I'm the wind, baby.
