I agree that "The Gamesmaster" or "Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan was an awesome original gimmick. It was especially original when teamed up with the Varsity Club in the NWA. Did it make any sense?--an evil robe-wearing dude who managed a group of jocks? The pure strangeness of it made it one of the coolest gimmicks of all time IMHO, and next to the Horseman that was probably the best-ran wrestling stable I have ever seen. One week Rotunda and Rick Steiner would wrestle, next week Dr. Death would be with them in a three man tag, another time Dr. Death would wrestle solo, then Sullivan would wrestle, etc. Awesome stuff.

Yeah. They really botched it up at the end though. Heck, let Hurricane play the role, it could be his third alter-ego! Also, I just thought of a new gimmick that was over in japan, and could probably get some decent reaction over here... Curry Man! It's one of Chris Daniels' gimmicks and... Just look up "Curry Man" and "Chris Daniels" on google and check the pages on him, you'll see why I dig it!

I'd love to see some of the really wacky Japanese gimmicks here:

Stoker Ichikawa (words can't describe the comedy here)
The Lost Fillipino Soldier (guy in fatigues, salutes a lot)
Milano Collection AT (wrestler/Fashion model)
Masa Chono's old Yakuza character

I won't even mention some of the stuff from Big Japan.

since i started watching wrestling i always thought a "copycat" gimmick would be really cool if executed by the right guy (or gal)... the wrestler would copy his opponents gimmick for the particlaur match and beat him/her at his own game!

i guess big show was closest to this when he did his venis and showster personas.

apparently the hardys are the ones that do all the moves for the video games so one of them would be excellent for this.

is there anyone who has ever seen this type of gimmick?



WHO?!! heh heh heh.... IT'S CATCHIN' ON.

Several of the guys mentioned here aren't exactly gimmicks. What is Brock Lesnar's Gimmick (he was mentioned in the first post)? That he goes and beats up people real bad? Heel Steve Austin wasn't a gimmick, it was a personality. Same with Angle. Guys like Kane, Hurricane and Mr. Perfexct are gimmick wreslters.



Caring is the first step towards disappointment.

"YOSHIKAZU TARU vs. STOKER ICHIKAWA: Oh man... you know this is gonna be
special when Stoker comes out to the William Tell Overture (AKA the "Lone Ranger"
theme to the mentally handicapped, Rossini-ignorant and Foghat members) and passes out
his business cards to the LADIEEEEEEES sitting ringside at Korakuen. In a devil
costume, mind you. Complete with pitchfork. Stoker spends the first couple of minutes
shaking his keister at Taru, doing crotch-chops and spinning away everytime Taru starts to
go after him. Taru soon gets tired of this and charges in, but Stoker sticks his fingers out.
Taru walks right into the Moe-poke and Stoker punches away, but Taru no-sells
everything and gives him this look like "Are you done yet, you fucking weirdo?" Taru
beats a mudhole into him and charges, only to fall to the floor as Stoker ducks out of the
way. Stoker fakes a mortal, jumps over the ropes and kicks Taru ala Sasuke, then rolls
back into the ring and performs the Mrs. Rippa Mating Dance again. Taru heads in and
levels Stoker with a kick, and you can tell he's gonna rip this geek in half now. Taru with
a half-hour suplex for 2, then Stoker sneaks in La Magistral for a near-fall. Taru (who
does a karate gimmick) comes back with kicks and absolutely NUKES Stoker with a
spinning MDII ("Taru Driller") for the one-finger pin. Postmatch Taru gives referee Babe
Richard a Polaroid camera so Taru can pose with Stoker's carcass- cool gimmick. Sadly
Stoker is all schtick and he sucks as a wrestler, but his schtick *is* pretty damn funny.
Plus the red fur on his arms and shoulders works much better for him than when Schneider
wore it to his senior prom."


Stoker RULES!!

Also another team I remember from the Nashville/Memphis
area was the Interns with their manager Dr. Ken Ramey(sp).

I know we had Issac Yankem DDS , but I don't recall the Intern gimmick being recycled either .

We had the evil Dentist , but what about an evil gynecologist . You know , disbarred for malpractice turns wrestler , comes in and always wants to give the Divas exams . : )

Stoker is funny as himself, but the "parody" matches that he and Taru do are priceless.

Stoker has "wrestled" as Masa Chono, I think Mutoh/Muta, and a few others I can't remember this early in the morning.

Taru usually "wrestled" as Ultimo Dragon (who runs/owns Toryumon) and the boss sometimes comes to ringside to castigate the two.

But, I love Milano Collection AT, with his wacky sunglasses and "invisible dog." (He comes to the ring with one of those erect dog leashes.)

Chavo is a very good wrestler, but the sad truth is that he's never been over without Eddie's help, and now is no exception.
