Although things have gotten decidedly more realistic in the WWE since the Attitude Era, wild and wacky gimmicks continue to play a big part in professional wrestling. The recent emergence of Fandango is a perfect example of that; the ballroom-dancing fiend continues to carry on a long tradition of strange characters in the WWE.

From the early 1990s up until the beginning of the Attitude Era in late 1997, the WWE had a habit of employing people who already had other jobs on the side. Whether it be a garbage man, a plumber, a hockey player or anything in between, it seemed like every wrestler had to be something weird in order to make it on television.

Gimmicks are still integral to wrestling and they always will be, but today's gimmicks are rooted more in reality than they used to be. Old-school characters will never fully be eliminated from the business, though, and that is a good thing. It is important to have some variety in order to keep things exciting.

With that said, here are the 10 silliest gimmicks in WWE history. I can't imagine that any of them will be topped in the near future, but if the WWE continues to create characters like Fandango, then you certainly never know.
