I'm watching Survivor Series 1989 and Brutus Beefcake has the worst gear I've ever seen. Skin tight pink and black striped pants with some kind of black fishnet running the length of each leg. The pink and black was good with the Hart Foundation, but it's the fishnet that's really bothersome. I can't really think of worse gear. Any nominations?

Tugboat's gear may be worse now that I reflect.

I take it, then, you never saw Dusty Rhodes' polka-dot tights during his brief career in the WWF.

Nor the pre-Flock Van Hammer. Of course, I don't have much to go on for a visual of what Beefcake's gear looked like at SS '89 (other than your description), but both Rhodes and Hammer set new standards for disgusting wrestling attire.

Rhodes' gear was made worse by the fact that he's already one of the ugliest men ever to step into the squared circle.

Jeff Jarrett when they had the NWA angle in the WWE in 1997.

Also, Giant Gonzalez.

No way! Giant Gonzalez' outfit was one of the coolest. At university, we all wanted to buy one someplace to wear out at Hallowe'en.

I always got freaked out by IRS' outfit-the guy wore a shirt, tie, and suspenders while wrestling!

Most of Billy Gunn's gear from his "Mr. Ass" period. Especially that one time he and Chyna wore matching see-through shorts. That was just wrong in so many ways.

Honorable mention to Al Snow's Avatar outfit, genie pants and all.

GoldDust with a black bra and G-string over his suit, or Luna's see-through dress.

Also, in about '95 the Steiner Brothers wore pink with polka dots... or was that just Rick? Whatever, it was bad.

What about Dusty's polka dot gear he had in his WWF run? that was absolutely horrid.

It was just Rick and he wore that wayyyyy before '95.


Remember,

Regular, one color singlet=Scott
Crazy, multi color singlet=Rick


My vote for Worst gear goes to Dusty Rhodes and his Black and Yellow Polka-Dotted stuff he wore in his late run with the WW(F)E.

The "Gay Biker/Judas Priest fanatic" look that Perry Saturn had for a while after splitting with the flock in WCW. That one still gives me nightmares.

Giant Gonzalez wouldn't have been so bad if not for the f'kn HAIR all over it. Ick.

As far as Dusty's polka dots, I'd say that any outfit in the history of wrestling would instantly become the worst if worn by a shirtless, sweaty Dusty Rhodes.

(Prince) Albert's body hair that makes him look like he's in a gorilla suit: that's pretty nasty attire.

Bastion Booger's gear was pretty nauseating if you want to talk fat guys in little outfits.

Currently, I would have to say that John Cena's is pretty bad. Sure, it's not horrendous, but he needs something to not make him look so generic.

Ha, I was just thinking about Jarrett's '97 gear that someone mentioned. I totally forgot "Aztec Warrior" Jeff that was too god to wrestle anyone whom he felt was beneath him. Too funny.

Speaking of big guys in little outfits, Rikishi's is pretty bad. How long has he had that same black thong? 3 years?

I was looking through old issues of Power Slam, a wrestling publication based in England. I found this interview with C.M. Punk, conducted shortly after Wrestlemania XX, in April 2004.
