    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.





Life is hilariously cruel.


It ain't the six minutes... it's what happens in that six minutes.

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

I always think of Bray Wyatt as Waylon Mercy 2.0, but better pulled off.


I'm not sure if he falls under Wrestlecrap, but Mr. Hughes was one of my favorite gimmicks. Intimidating and I'm not sure if he ever said a word. Plus, he worked matches and didn't take the glasses off. That's just solid dedication to one's eyewear.

I'm gonna disagree with you. Mercy was based on a movie...Cape Fear(?) but Bray is just some cult leader who leads a band of homeless guys by spewing bullshit. Sorry, I don't see it.

Oh, and Waylon Mercy was better. Yeah, Bray had more success but I liked Waylon more.

I was in the studio audience for the Ramblin' Rod show on KPTV Portland in the mid 1970's. Part of the show was a "smiling contest", where they panned the camera across the kids in the audience and the winner got Pop Shoppe soda.
