Pretty much what the title says. Pro wrestling has a long history of horrendous gimmicks and bad ideas. As often as something works and gets over, an awful lot of the time things bomb big time and are just plain ridiculous. Sometimes things just don't make any sense. Believe it or not, some actually get a kick out of this stuff and I have to admit a lot of it is funny in retrospect and some is downright hilarious in its awfulness same as is many a bad movie. So go ahead and post a Youtube of a favourite. Stick to one per entry please.

From the AWA, there was Rocky Mountain Thunder! Can you believe Verne and them actually thought this guy would be popular and get over. He's just awful.

The late Giant Gonzales (formerly El Gigante in WCW), a former Argentinian basketball player. WWF put him in a ridiculous muscle suit with fur no less to try and make him look better. Well it didn't really work. Oh he had the size but was just so terrible in the ring.

Months and months of buildup...all leading to....The Gobbledy Gooker?

Although, one rumor I've heard, and Mick Foley partially confirmed it to a degree, was that The Undertaker was gonna debut as "The EggMan"...thankfully they changed their minds.

Vince had to have come up with this last minute.

Who in the world thought Mantaur (obviously based on the Minotaur legend) was a good idea for the WWF?

Who is one dumb character.
Small | Large


Who was played by Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart.  Not sure who came up with it, but, it was supposedly a 'dig' on Hulk Hogan.  Supposedly, it was based on the old Abbott and Costello "Who's On First?" routine.

Also, there was a tag team partner lined up for him, named "What."  But, ultimately, they lined Neidhart up with the Harts again in a New Hart Foundation or some such.

I never saw Who before but I remember hearing it was pretty bad and that it was obvious it was Neidhart. Nash's gimmicks pre-Diesel were truly terrible indeed. Here we have two bad ideas in one match, veteran Bill Irwin saddled with a silly hockey gimmick as The Goon, supposedly too rough for hockey, and Barry Windham with the silly "Stalker" gimmick.

Barry Darsow is great.  I liked the Repo Man...but it was a pretty terrible gimmick.

Hard to believe Nailz was once "Mr. Magnificent" Kevin Kelly in the AWA?! Look him up as Mr. Magnificent and you'll see the difference I'm talking about. All he ever seemed to do as Nailz was choke, choke and choke some more.  BounceGiggle

WWF wasn't alone in bad gimmicks by any means. WCW gave us fat boy white rapper P.N. News.

"The Lava Lamp Lounge", starring Mike Awesome
Small | Large


So, WCW swipes Mike Awesome from a hot ECW run, and got him while he was still the ECW champ.  Despite his great run in Japan and ECW, they broke him down into "That '70s Guy" Mike Awesome where he hosted this...as well as being "The Fat Chick Thriller" Mike Awesome. Buggedout
