Gillberg's version of the Goldberg entrance including jobsquad with lame fireworks and an uninspired 3 man 'gillberg' chant.
Jericho's Spinal Tap Goldberg mocking entrance. Leave it to Chris to copy an 80s metal movie
Snow's european champ entrances were good indeed. D'LO being from Europe was classic and made him a great euro champ, plus that he brought prestige to it, unlike Al who used it for comedy..or Christian who didn't really do that much with it except for great lines like the one when Test says he hooked up with a Swedish girl "Oh really, from Europe? WHat was her name?" or something like that..crazily funny..

One of the intentionally funny entrances I ever saw was on TBS in the late eighties sometime. For weeks, Paul Jones had bragged about how he was going to have a new guy in his stable, a vicious killer who would destroy everyone. Finally, his man "The Mighty Wilbur" debuts, and much to Jones' dismay, the guy is a Hillbilly Jim lookalike who shakes hands with the fans and his opponent, and helps the jobber up after squashing him. I think the guy went on be become "Norman" and "Makan Singh," but the way the typical "monster heel debut" angle was twisted around was pretty funny. I wonder who thought that one up, because it was pretty clever for its time.

OK we have Kane's original entrance at Badd Blood 97. My favourite bit of this was that the pyro went off while he was walking to the ring instead of before he came out, to give him that eerie, almost horror film-ish background.
Then we have Ahmed Johnson's King of the Ring 96 entrance. There were these crappy doors held by two jobbers or something. When Ahmed's music hits he doesn't wait for the door to be opened for him, he just PLOWS the poor guys down and sprints to the ring. Made the match 10X better in my opinion.
hen we have Al Snow's European entrances. Nothing spells 'European' like a signed photo of Tony Danza. It's the little things that make the Snowman cool.
