Five Wrestling Gimmicks That I Liked
It's no big secret. From 1991 until when I went off to GSU, I watched professional wrestling religiously. I'm not necessarily ashamed. While there are still a few entertaining personalities (Kurt Angle, Edge & Christian, The Hurricane) left, it's gotten pretty bland nowadays. You know why? No good characters! Look at these guys! They were fun!

1. The Bezerker

Ah yes, the Bezerker. A viking! He came out looking like he does there in action figure form, but he carried a bigass sword and yelled in vikingspeak.

2. Repo Man

Repo Man was great. He did little video skits where he stole cars. He repossessed "Macho Man" Randy Savage's hat once.

3. Shark Boy

Shark Boy is one of those guys who never has really been able to make it into the WWE or the old WCW, but he sharks around the independant federations and has quite the following.

4. Papa Shango

He would set people on fire, make black stuff ooze out of the foreheads... all with his magical shaman voodoo powers. The guy who portrayed Papa Shango would later become The Godfather, a wrestling pimp. That was fun as well.

And the all-time greatest wrestler of all time...


A wrestling mountie! It reeks of Canada! He'd use his little shock stick there and the WWF would insert a little "zzzap" sound everytime. He also sang his own theme song, in a very horrible fashion, which had the best lyrics in the world. "I'm the Mountie! I'm handsome! I'm brave! I'm strong!" I tried to find it online, but couldn't. He went away for a while, but came back as a member of the Quebecers, under his real name Jacques with partner Pierre. Their gimmick?
