Your weekly dose of Brodus Clay as the Funkasaurus from Planet Funk who is funky

It's Tuesday, folks, and that means it's time for your weekly dose of Brodus Clay as the Funkasaurus from Planet Funk who is funky.

In this latest edition from last night's (Jan. 30) episode of Raw, Clay squashes Tyler Reks, yet another jobber no one knows enough about to bother giving a care for. That could change one day, of course, but today is not that day.

No major changes in the Funkasaurus character this week. He didn't shout spots as much as usual, which was disappointing, but he did throw an elbow reminiscent of the great Dusty Rhodes. Maybe that's because they're both fat guys who jiggle when said elbows are thrown. Nonetheless, it was amazing.

One thing I like about the progression of Clay, and it's slow but it definitely is a progression, is that each week he sells for his opponent more and more. This week, he was dropkicked until he fell to one knee. Of course, he answered with his version of the "hulk up" (the funk up?) and smashed Reks the rest of the way, but at least he's showing vulnerability.

Really, the funky dancing and jiggling act is fun and will continue to be so but the truly interesting aspect of the Clay character comes in how they continue to move it along. Who will be the first man to defeat him? How will that happen? When will he get a legitimate opponent?

We'll have to wait for all that. In the meantime, enjoy the video of Clay squashing Reks on Raw last night.
