This is a spin off of another thread (Awful Gear). I was thinking of some wrestlers that have had some awesome gear.

My personal favorite: Al Snow when he was Euro Champ.

Who else?

I was always a fan of anything HBK wore 96 - 98. The guy had the best threads ever. Specifically, the black and white irridescent ones he wore at Survivor Series '96 against Sid.

Also, Chris Jericho's Electric blue tights w/ pink trim are pretty snazzy too.

Dan Severn, back when he was Jim Cornette's muscle. I just found it cool how he'd kick ass, and then calmly readjust his tie.

I was born in a manger, like that other guy. You know, he wore a hat?

Bret "The Hitman" Hart

He never wore the underwear looking tights that HHH, Rocky and a lot of other gusy wear. he had the legs with both straps. It looked like wrestling gear that YOU wouldn't be embarassed to wear. Even the Pink and Black worked well together.

Shawn Micheals was alright, but a bit too flamboyant.

Yeah, I have to admit I'm a sucker for TAKA's 3/4 length tights he wore for most of his Kaientai tenure in the WWF. I'd probably wear that style, black, with crop circles or adidas stripes in red if I was wrestling. If not those, biker shorts.

Henning's tights were always my favorite.

I like most of Kurt Angle's wrestling-tight outfits. They just add a touch of old-school “real” wrestling class to accentuate his character. He looks like he could actually go into a college wrestling gymnasium wearing his pro wrestling tights, and I think that's pretty cool.

Eddie's black pants with all the gold on them and the green and red triangles intertwined have always been my favorite tights.

Some of the airbrushed dragon designs on his tights are out of this world. I also don't think anyone else has as many different pairs as he does.

And of course....Ric Flairs robes!

The Rick Rude airbrushed tights were always fun, since he would change them frequently.

RVD is the most consistant with new tights... I like it when the wrestlers change their tights often. Angle has had some good ones, escpecially the tights with the gold abs.

RVD's gear is generally good, although there have been a few clunkers in there.

I always kinda liked the British Bulldog's flag trunks, with the fringy things tied around his biceps and all. Colorful and eye-catching, without being garish.

Jeff Jarrett's gear when he was in his "Double J" period was cool, once he took off the hat and the dumb sunglasses.

Ditto for RVD. At King of the Ring, my friend remarked, "Ah, he busted out the Bengal tights for the PPV!" I also like the one with the spinal cord running down the back.

And if we're going back in the day, you gotta give it up for the Ultimate Warrior. Everything he wore contributed to the image.

I'm sorry, pink and black tights with a big pink triangle on them isn't embarassing? Your kidding, right? My wife and I just saw "Wrestling with Shadows" for the first time when A&E showed it a few days ago, and my wife's first reaction upon seeing Bret was, "So his character is supposed to be gay?" I replied that, no, he's supposed to be _so_ straight he has no what an upside-down pink triangle means.

The Road Warriors, NWA, circa 87-90. Pre-WWF, when the spiked shoulder pads were black instead of red and had chains on them. F'k'n BADASS.

I also always liked Ricky Steamboat's look, even though it wasn't especially flashy. The best example is the outfit he wore at WrestleMania III. White tights, White boots, and a white, martial arts style gi robe, with stylized asian dragons on the boots and on the back of the robe.

I agree with whoever said Rick Rude's airbrushed tights. I especially liked how they'd have something to do with the particular match, or his opponent. Like, when he was going for the IC title at WrestleMania V, so he had the belt airbrushed onto his tights, or when he was feuding with Jake Roberts, and had Jake's wife's picture on his tights. Classic :)

Why would Kane need to come out with a flamethrower when his arm already is one

I like lot of wrestlers gear:

"The Franchise" Shane Douglas: I'm a "Franchise" mark and I just love the Black and Yellow.

RVD: How can you not love the airbrushed tights.

Rick Rude: See RVD.

Chris Jericho: Ever since his ECW days he has had some of the best looking tights in the business.

Kurt Angle: I love the old-school singlet look especially with the Red,White and Blue.I like the newest one he has that looks like camoflage and the one that looks like its bleeding with the Red,White and Blue dripping down.

Bret Hart: The only man besides Owen and Chris Jericho that could make pink look tough.

Randy Savage: I like the old-school pink with yellow star tight from back when he could still go.

Chris Nowinski: I just like the white boots and knee pads.I kinda makes him look like Rick Martel.

Eddie Guerrero: His stuff from his Early-WCW days looked kinda weird but his gear now is awesome.The mixture of Gold,Black and any other color just looks good

that about all i can think of.

SOK (hailing from Calgary, AB), quietly says:My choices for best gear:

(I'm surprized I never seen some of these in here!)

JOHN CENA: It's basic, and it works. The colours seem to be an important think nowadays.

HHH (DX era): Black legs, green groin area with the HHH thing there.

Benoit (pre injury): I like the slash effect on the legs. Especailly good was black and purple.

Waylon Mercy: black pants, white undershirt. Works for me!

William Regal: the black and purple looks good.

Steven Richards / Tommy Dreamer: Those pants rule!

Just a quick list...

He was already out of the picture when I started getting WWF programming, but the legend of him in all the Apter mags made me aware of him. Then youtube and the WWE Network made his matches available. Hell of a big guy.
