    Battle of the worst wrestling gimmicks

    Right, let's hear it. A few to start things off:

    Red Rooster
    The American Dream (only purpose was to humiliate Rhodes, but he made it fly with his mic skills)
    Well Dunn
    The Bodydonnas (horrible gimmick, only to be explained with Vince's bodybuilding obsession. Candido was much better off as Candido and let's not talk about Tammy)
    Max Moon (the only time I saw Konnan do anything resembling high flying)
    Big Van Vader (dreadful gimmick, especially with the mask they build him in Japan)
    Mantaur
    The Goon
    MVP aka Abe 'Knuckleball' Schultz
    Bastion Booger
    Virgil / Vince / Shane (poor dude, he was better off in UWF)

    Gobbledegooker is a definite, good call Pincheh

    Kamala
    Giant Gonzalez
    Doink
    Zeus

    edit - also liking the fake Diesel/Hall idea - Diesel was the same guy as Isaac Yankem DDS (ie Kane) right?

    Aldo Montoya has got to be in there as well.

    Personally, I don't think Kerwin White should be included - if Eddie hadn't died when he did, forcing Chavo to drop the gimmick, I think that gimmick would have gotten over massively and provided endless comedy value. It was a very interesting and multi-layered gimmick, I thought, with the potential to challenge the 'foreigner = bad' rule that Vince loves to implement from time to time.

    George The Animal Steele from the 80s - used to eat the turnbuckle.



    Interestingly, George has a Masters degree in science:

    My first thought was Doink and glad his atrocity of a gimmick hasn't been forgotten.

    Also nominate;
    Pukeboy
    The Spirit Squad
    Repo Man
    Disco Inferno

    Do celeb appearances count as well? Because then Jay Leno, Dennis Rodman, Karl Malone, Pete Rose amongst others would be right at the top.

    Also loved Kerwin White, was hilarity during it's short stint and Chavo pulled it off brilliantly. Razor Ramon was awesome but I think his nomination was his combo with fake Diesel.

    May have something to do with Mike Rotundo, but I always thought IRS was a good gimmick.

    Yeah IRS was cool. Ridiculously over for a midcarder too.
