10 Dumbest Wrestling Gimmicks Of All Time

3 November 2014 3:18 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

If you want to make it in pro wrestling, you’ve got to have a gimmick…

In fact, your level of career success can depend greatly on your gimmick.

If you’re lucky enough to be Mark Callaway, you get to become The Undertaker, being presented to fans around the world as the ultimate badass for 20+ years.

However, if you’re Fred ‘Shockmaster’ Ottman, they simply squeeze you into an effeminate fur coat, give you a Star Wars helmet covered in glitter and get Ole Anderson to do his cookie monster impersonation whenever you’re supposed to be talking.

Then, you’re pretty much boned.

Whether you’re Perry Saturn being told that you’re about to embark on a televised love affair with a mop, Shawn Stasiak getting the nod to play an underwear model, or Chris Kanyon being packaged as a Mortal Kombat character, a bad gimmick is a bad gimmick. »
