"If it ain't flashy and in high style what's the point?"—B.D. Neon
The WWE is, or was, home to some of the most memorable and colorful people and personalities ever in professional wrestling.
Many things make a WWE superstar. Promo skills, in-ring ability and their overall persona play into what legacy a superstar will leave.
As highlighted by a previous article, I mentioned how the superstar enters the arena can captivate and awe the audience all on its own, however many people mentioned that I missed some memorable entrances. Due to this fact, I will take you on a flash and flare filled adventure based around the ring entrance attire all on its own.
Strap in and put on your shades folks, these duds shine the brightest!

Though never having wrestled for the WWE, he still earns his slide for not only being in the WWE Hall of Fame, but Gorgeous George very well may have been the first "flamboyant" wrestler.
In a time where all the wrestlers were rough and tumble brawlers, George would wear extravagant robes to the ring and toss flower lays to the crowd before his matches. He also may have been the first wrestler to utilize a "strut" to throw his opponents off gaurd, a tactic a couple other people on this list used.

From his early days with Christian to his later Wrestlemania entrances, Edge's trademark trenchcoat (with or without sunglasses) remains a favorite with many a WWE fan.

Yes, its spelled out for a reason. Before "The Game" was COO of the WWE, he came into the company as "The American Blue-blood". A snob who always dressed as a proper gentleman should, and aimed to educate the WWE fans of proper etiquette.

This erratic individual has a look to match his actions. Jeff Hardy has let his artistic side flow as the years have progressed in his career.

Jerry "The King" Lawler has always been characterised by his kingly robes and crown. A staple ever since his coming to the WWE

Sliding in as the only Diva on the list, Michelle McCool had some of the better ring attire of the WWE Divas. It looked like some thought went into her attire and not like it was just a glorified bikini.
The Hart Family

Some of the most iconic figures in wrestling history come from the Hart clan. So do those sweet leather jackets.
Ted DiBiase Sr.

"The Million Dollar Man" is one of the greatest WWE performers never to hold a world title, but that doesn't matter. The man was so rich, he didn't need the title. He just had his own made. If that belt isn't flashy, I don't know what is.
It doesn't matter if you know him as William or Lord Steven Regal from his WCW days, this tough as nails Englishman always carries himself with an air of snobbery, dignity and a pretty nice robe.

No one can mistake the "flare" that the Nature Boy has about him when he walks down the ramp with those long, extravagant feather robes.

Seemingly taking a cue from Shawn Michaels is John Morrison. His ring attire definitely catches the eye and the large cross down the sides of the trunks is of his real life girlfriend Melina's design.

Though Michaels caught a bit of flak from the other guys in the dressing room earlier in his "Heartbreak Kid" gimmick, the detail that went into a lot of Shawn's older ring attire was nothing short of astounding.

How can one forget "The Bizarre One?" With his blond wig and flowing gold robe, he was definitely a character to remember for multiple (and strange) reasons in WWE history.
Wow...what a nice...jacket... Source - http://photos.lucywho.com/natalie-neidhart-photo-gallery-c13817389.html
So, what do you guys think? Anybody I left out will get an honorable mention on this slide if you argue your case well enough in the good old comments section.
"Macho Man" Randy Savage. My apologies to all who mentioned that I left him out in the comments section. I am ashamed that someone as great as Savage could slip my mind.
Melina. At the behest of ahmed essam I took a second look at her outfits and she earned honorable mention.
Rey Mysterio. Thank you Tyler Mccall for the suggestion.
Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. Thank you Ryan Lauro for the suggestion.
