The WWE has listed the 25 worst gimmicks in wrestling on it's website. I'm not posting this to get into a bad gimmick debate, as we all know them by now. I am posting this Click Here (wwe.com) because they listed Paul Heyman #2 ! This kind of feels like a WWE 'screw you'. Is he still drawing a paycheck from the company? It seems like he could at least have a useful on air roll.

Meh...Paul Heyman IS annoying. Never liked the gimmick. He may be a pretty good booker, but keep him BEHIND the camera!



I had just bent down to tighten my nuts, and there was a double yellow line, see? And next thing I knew, there was policeman behind me. He put a sticker on my helmet and tried to clamp me.

This list is pretty old but at the time I remember thinking someone needs to buy the wwe.com staff a dictionary. Was anyone ever annoyed by Mantaur, Max Moon, The Shockmaster etc? Shit gimmicks yes, but they can't be described as annoying. Marc Mero's inclusion was clearly a "fuck you" over his interviews after the Benoit scandal.

Jimmy Hart was #1 and Heyman was #2 under most annoying. I have no problem with this. That WAS their whole gimmick...basically to be annoying.

...and yes, I was annoyed when I had to watch Mantaur or Max Moon matches.

This is actually a most "annoying" gimmick list, not a "bad" gimmick list. In this case, the choices are ok.

Jillian Hall is on the list, and last time I checked isn't in anyone's doghouse. I think you're reading WAY too much into this.

How was Paul Heyman a "gimmick" exactly? Wouldn't "character" be more appopriate here?

Well, there's no Daimen Demento in the list, so I really doubt it was meant as a fu type of list. Still, this is such a shitty list. A lot of those characters were awsome, not annoying. Especiially the Genius, Jimmy Hart, and the real man's man, William Regal. OK, maybe not Regal's character itself, but his theme was AWESOME:

He's a man's man.....He's a man's man.......... He's a MMMMMMAAAAAANNNNNN!!!

There's something weird about "WWE presents WWE's most annoying gimmicks".
It's like: uh, you guys came up with these ideas.

How do they define "annoying"? On purpose or accidentally?
X-Pac was annoying as hell, but wasn't supposed to be.
Jimmy Hart was annoying, but he was doing exactly what his job called for.

Mantaur wasn't really around long enough to be annoying--just bad.

Was Jillian Hall's mole ever explained or was it just gone one day?

Just because they throw some actual ones on there doesn't mean the 'Fuck Yous' aren't there either. I thought Paul Heyman was just Paul Heyman and is always like that. If he's not going to book why not have him in front of the camera he always seems to get most of his people over.

I also could be reading WAY too much into this, but when I was clicking through I was caught off guard because he didn't seem to fit in with the others. Why not put Russo or Bischoff on there instead of Heyman?

True.

Where is Vicki and her "EXCUSE ME?!", that's got to be the most purposely annoying thing on WWE right now. Well, ok, maybe second to Jillian's singing.

I agree with most of that, but I don't think there were any bonafide FU's on that list. As it was pointed out, Russo in WCW, 2000, wasn't on the list, nor was Dean Douglas. After all, why put them on the list and give them any sort of press?

Yeah, X-Pac should have been on the list, but the most annoying thing about X-Pac was the fact that X-Pac always won.

Yeah, I used to be excited about TNA's direction. Even about a month ago, I saw some positive details. It's nights like tonight that ruin all of that and make me wonder why they bother. I'll say one thing nice about NWA-TNA:
- chill, 7/28 TNA PPV (2004)
