    I enjoyed Paul Burchill, Santino and Mordecai. I also enjoyed Cesaro's when he just said words in different languages.

    Constable Corbin.

    If someone here suggested Corbin side with Stephanie and call himself a Constable, they’d be laughed at.

    Yet, it works

    It was Max Moon. I didn’t realize this was originally planned for Konnan!

    Edit: another classic!

    WrestleTalk is doing crap gimmicks and they have me howling. As much as I hate the idiotic gimmick like the goon or IRS, you can't help but have a soft spot in your heart for them.

    The Con Man Rob Conway. What a sight to see.

    Norman Smiley.

    Ernest The Cat Miller

    Das Wunderkind Alex Wright.

    I also enjoyed the ribbon shirt edition of Jeff Jarrett.

    Eh, IRS is a classic. It worked surprisingly well for what it was. Rotunda played it perfectly.

    The Right to Censor.

    That was a stroke of genius at the time. 100% opposite of the excess of the product and even making a point of campaigning against it and aiming to end it.

    other than Vince, you couldn't have made a gimmick that'd get more heat than that.

    also, Adam Bomb...dont know why but always loved seeing him on Saturday morning Superstars, haha

    I had Chris Masters pinned as a long-time champ. Guess not....

    I'm also a big fan of the Broken Matt gimmick. Too bad WWE already killed that one off.

    I've also been a fan of Attitude Era and mainly extreme wrestling so I've always loved RVD and Sabu among others.

    I enjoyed Chris Masters too. His gimmick was pretty damn generic but he owned it really nicely, thought he was in line for a big push.

    Agreed that RTC was genius.

    Brother Love. Televangelists were huge in the 80's, and to put a spin on them with faux "love" as the angle was brilliant. I'm a huge fan of wrestling talk shows/interviews in general, and (much) more so when they have their own sets outside of the ring.

    Elias, obviously.
    I loved Gangrel and the Brood.
    I hated Eva Marie, but loved what they were doing with her at the end.
    Also Doink the Clown was awesome.

    Same with me. I mean, he just squashed guys and was built like a semi. The goggles were a nice touch.

    The Cryme Tyme gimmick was so racist but they had me rolling every time they came on screen. Just seemed like cool guys that owned it and just didn't give a damn.
