5 Worst Gimmicks In Wrestling
There has been some pretty good gimmicks that have panned out quite nicely in professional wrestling, The Undertaker, The Ultimate Warrior, and even Val Venis worked out pretty well.
This list isn't for them, no this list is for the gimmicks that made us laugh at them, or just change the channel when they came on.
It's just personal preference so try not to bash to much.
5. The Spirit Squad
Male cheerleaders that's basically what they were. They were in WWE for about 11 months, feuding with DX.
They would come out blowing blow horns, and act like cheerleaders, obviously.
Which included a world tag team championship run, and one of them having a WWE championship match, by drawing straws.
But overall, the gimmick was short lived and they broke up.
Although Spirit Squad member Nicky (Dolph Ziggler) has found some success.
4. Simon Dean
Once upon a time he was part of a gimmick that was funny, in the Blue World Order, as Super Nova.
But when he came to the WWE up to the main roster in 2005 he was known as Simon Dean.
A physical-fitness guru, who would ride down the entrance on his segway and try to promote his Simon System products.
3. Mr. America
Mr. America was persona that Hulk Hogan used back in 2003. He used all of Hogans catch phrases, he even came out to his old theme song "Real American."
I'm not sure if WWE actually didn't want us to know that it was actually Hulk Hogan or not, but if they did they must really think that wrestling fans are dumb.
This stupid gimmick went as far to giving Mr. America a lie detector test and him passing.
America was fired after taking off his mask and showing himself to be Hulk Hogan, which "shocked everyone," I'm sure.
2. Gobbledy Gooker
The Gobbledy Gooker (Hector Guerrero) "hatched" from an oversized egg, which had been on display at WWF events prior to the Survivor Series, and heavily hyped on television.
However, crowd reaction was very negative, with fans booing as the costumed Guerrero danced in the ring with announcer "Mean" Gene Okerlund.
Announcers Gorilla Monsoon and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper tried their best to be enthusiastic.
But the Gimmick was a joke and the fans were ultimately let down.
1. Shock Master
This really isn't a Shock is it, (terrible joke I'm sorry.)
Sting and Davey Boy Smith were confronted by Sid and the Harlem Heat, demanding to know the identity of their new partner. Sting exclaimed , "All I can say is, he is going to "shock" the world, because he is none other than... The Shockmaster!!"
His new costume consisted of a Star Wars Stormtrooper helmet painted silver and covered in glitter, a pair of jeans, and a long black vest. Instead, in perhaps the most humiliating moment in wrestling history,
Ottman tripped over a piece of lumber that was framing the set, causing his helmet to fall off and slide across the floor.
He scrambled to put the helmet back on and get to his feet, in an attempt to salvage the disaster.
But it was too late, as it is the No. 1 on my list of the worst gimmicks.
