Re Crazy Eddie's curved spacetime, which appears to be envisaged as being a patchwork of Minkowski spacetimes, although I might be wrong. Perhaps it might have difficulty explaining effects such as frame dragging, although the experimental results for that are somewhat inconclusive.

Certainly, a new theory would have to be consistent with the large amount of experimental evidence already collected.
