This week is a time to appreciate our favorite teachers and with that WWE’s greatest educators of all time. Matt Striker is the only current character in the WWE who once used the teacher gimmick and there haven’t been many others.
However, WWE has taken advantage of various Superstars’ educational experiences.
The Genius was an educational poet, who wore a cap and gown to the ring. Chris Nowinski and David Otunga have incorporated their degrees from Harvard University into their characters. An argument can even be made for Damien Sandow who preaches to be the Intellectual Savior of the Masses.
Yet, these Superstars were not actual educators in or outside of the ring. In fact, WWE has only used some variation of the gimmick for five characters.
Here I will discuss each character and give them a grade based on their accomplishments in the company.
As an educator myself, I hope we all appreciate the impact teachers have in the World and World Wrestling Entertainment.
