As a kid growing up watching wrestling one of my favorites was the Ultimate Warrior. Jacked up, face paint, ran to the ring and shook the ropes like a mad man! This past weekend he went into the WWE Hall of Fame and Monday night appeared on Monday Night Raw. Tonight he is dead. (more…)
Who here remembers when wrestling used to be filled with colorful characters and “supermen?” I know I do and that’s what got me into wrestling during the early 90’s. It was like watching a real life cartoon at the time and the fighting helped make it entertaining (yeah, yeah the “fake fighting” for some of you). Either way, that’s how wrestling was before the whole “Attitude Era” started and we got more “real” characters.
This list is to point out ten of the many silly gimmicks that had a Fantasy/Sci-Fi theme to them. From a Mortal Kombat rip-off to a man from the future, these may be some of the wrestling gimmicks that may have gotten you into wrestling. So jump ahead and check out some of these gimmicks as I’m sure some of you will wondered why they even attempted to create such character.
