    If not Disco, then I would include his many imitators like dancing Alex Wright, Tokyo Mangum, Norman Smiley and the Big Wiggle. That's one of the great things about WCW that gets overlooked: the number of wrestlers with great, goofy dances for taunts. That bit of levity is sorely missing in wrestling these days.
I agree wholeheartedly...it seems, however, that goofy gets frowned upon. I adore the Bunny and his interactions with Slater Gator, as well as Hornswoggle as Mini Gator.

Another two names for the Wrestlecrap listing that I quite enjoyed:

1: Berlyn - I quite liked the Euro goth trash gimmick with The Wall as his bodyguard, and some girl translating? I have no idea why that didn't do better. It's working well for Rusev. Thanks, Supersalvadoran for reminding me of Alex Wright.

2: Se7en - a Dustin Rhodes gimmick which probably looked great on paper (a gothic albino character who floated to the ring, only to totally denounce Kayfabe and the creative process - but still quite a clever idea. He denounced Creative before denouncing Creative was cool!

The Hurricane. He was funny, could wrestle and had a gimmick kids and adults could get behind. His interactions with The Rock and Foley were awesome.

"Smoke Break" Big Show. It only lasted a few shows, but Big Show (in WCW) would come out, light a cigarette and wrestle some jobber while smoking. It was weird to see someone on TV smoke and also to see how small a cigarette looked in his hand.

Paul Burchill, the WWE's pirate. For whatever reason, I loved that gimmick.
