OK, all the other stuff above is crap, but how can you not like The Mummy?  That was cool!

Aside from The Mummy, all of the above crap just confirms why I have not watched wrestling since the mid-80's.

Well you cannot deny this wresting mummy is bad! Although he was actually billed as The Yeti. Still he's kind of hilarious too...

Yeah that was bad.  Why in the world would they call him "The Yeti?"

I think the AWA had a couple guys in the '80s cashing in on a fad:

One guy competed as Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th. Another was Freddy Krueger from Elm Street.

I'm curious enough to want to watch this.

Actually that was in Memphis wrestling and they had a Mummy too and a guy dressed up like Batman at one point who billed himself as Battman. Memphis Wrestling has a long history of absurd and crazy angles/characters. Japan too has an history of having wrestlers play movie characters leading to this incident in which two of the guys under the masks (Eddie and Doug Gilbert unmasked under their Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger get-ups). Leatherface was also a regular in Japan and the character as portrayed in FMW was particularly memorable. Sid Vicious early in his career played a version of Lord Humongous (from The Road Warrior) in Continental Wrestling.

And yep Leatherface (who I believe was played by the former Corporal Kirchner)  too showed up in Memphis (as well as being a regular over in Japan)

^That's it, Jase. I couldn't remember the promotions. I was a bit young then but remembered them being around. Thanks for helping.

I was reading that back in the '60s, Verne Gagne hired a guy, did up his appearance, gave him a mop-top and guitar, and called him 'The 5th Beatle', George Ringo.

Who could ever forget the wrestling plumber T.L. (Toilet Lid?) Hopper? Veteran independent star in Continental Wrestling and southern wrestling promotions "The Dirty White Boy" Tony Anthony was cast in the role.

Was actually gonna post Hopper, but just getting in from work and not trying to use the computer.

I'd also bear to mention Bastion Booger.

The Shockmaster --- even if he didn't literally fall on his face on his debut I doubt it would've worked in large part because of the Star Wars helmet covered in glitter

The Shockmaster is the stuff of Wrestlecrap legend. Quite possibly the most hilarious unintentionally funny moment in pro wrestling history.  BounceGiggle

Another strange character who was briefly in the WWF was Damien Demento (from "The Outer Reaches of Your Mind!"  Buggedout BounceGiggle). He actually had a cool look but I never quite understood what the heck was up with him...

Best part of The Shockmaster, is very lowly in the background you hear the British Bulldog say 'I can't believe he fell on his ass', or some such.

Before he was the Gobbledly Gooker in WWF, way back in 1987 Hector Guerrero was Lazor-Tron in the NWA playing a gimmick based on the game "Laser Tag".
