Gimmick's you're suprised you haven't seen...

What are some new gimmicks in wrestling that you can imagine? They can be your own creation, or a character from something else.

 

Here's a few examples of gimmicks that I have imagined:

 

Ronald McDonald - Imagine if the mascot for the biggest fast-food chain in the world suddenly decided to become a wrestler? His favorite foreign object would be french-fries, and his finisher would be called The Big Mac.:lol

 

Darth Vader - What better way to get Star Wars fans interested in wrestling then to put the evil Darth Vader in a wrestling ring? His finisher would be the Force ChokeSlam, and he would be in a feud with Big Van Vader.

 

The Sewernator - A toilet repairman, who lives in a sewer and eats plauge infested rats. His favorite foreign object is a toilet brush, and his opponents are reluctant to face him due to the way he smells.:lol

 

What are some of your ideas?

Watch the pre-show for, I believe, SummerSlam 1996. TL Hopper and a bunch of guys are in a pool and he runs the old Caddyshack gimmick of finding a turd in the pool, taking a bite and realising its a Snickers bar or something.

We've had a segment with Goldust as Darth Vader. One of the funniest things I've seen as it goes. Goldust and Booker were...well, gold.

I'm surprised we haven't seen an "Internet Fan" gimmick yet. I can imagine Vince McMahon taking great pleasure in signing a decent Japanese wrestler (legit good, not a Kenzo Susuke); a Japanese wrestler who is 220lbs, short hair, mysterious mask, technical, works quite stiff and has a good all-rounder move-set (but focussing on "workrate").

 

Then stick him with a manager who is an internet geek who proclaims this wrestler is the greatest thing ever because he is from Japan, isn't roided, has a very good chop-to-the-chest and spells his single-word name in CAPITALS.

 

I'd love to see that :lol

 

Cheers!

Smark gimmick...someone who shoots at the rest of the roster about personal life stuff. Calls wrestlers by their first name etc etc.

That kind of gimmick is being done in dribs and drabs a lot of the time now, in my opinion.

 

Certainly Triple H isn't aversed to calling people by their real names.

 

Brian Pillman sorta blurred fact and fiction; maybe not in the smark way but he did want to make people question what they thought were the "borders of wrestling and real life".

 

Matt Hardy and Edge had a smarky feud over Lita, when Hardy used to try to jump the guardrails in order to beat up Edge. That was until the WWE blew it.

 

Samoa Joe cut a promo on Nash a few months back which was a very close-to-the-bone account of backstage-ism.

 

I think wrestlers do that kind of thing all the time, and we're so used to it now we don't really see it. However, having someone do a gimmick like that full-time; every week calling wrestlers out by their real names and blasting kaybabe to bits may actually have an adverse effect on the product.

 

I know we're all "smart" fans but how disappointing would it be for "Smark Man" to be cutting a promo in the ring, having Boogeyman's music kick in and seeig the toothless wonder body-popping down to the ring with all the smoke and worms...and for "Smark Man" to come out with:

 

SM: Oh for crying out loud, Charles, put your tongue back in!

 

I don't know; even that I know that Boogeyman is a stupid gimmick portrayed badly by a wrestling leper - it would be funny once but would become tiresome after a while. It would ruin wrestling's fun side.

 

You need crummy gimmicks and OTT characters to compliment the "legit" characters.

 

I'll tell you something though; if they were to have a "Smark Man" then that person would have to be absolute frikkin' DYNAMITE on the mic. "Rock good" on the mic. At least.

 

PS: I think Boogeyman's real name is Charles anyway? Feel free to correct me.

 

Cheers!

Eugene was kind of a smarky fan type character, in a way, just retarded. He marked out for Triple H and midgets if I remember right.

'Dirty White Boy' Tony Anthony played TL Hopper who was a toilet repairman. His foreign object was a plunger.
He had an awesome brainbuster too. Not as good as Koko's, but great in its own right.

His real name is Marty Wright.

There was a "Fireman" in WCW in the early nighties,Fireman Chip I think he was called.

 

Yes, Firebreaker Chip teamed with Todd Champion in early 90's WCW in a tag-team known as The Patriots.

I was just thinking of WWF/E gimmicks as I am not that aware of WCW stuff from before around 96ish which is why I was not aware of a Fireman

As strange as it is, I could see this actually happening, but considering that WWE still use Doink now and again, they tecnically already have their "clown" gimmick and I couldn't see them bringing him in while they're still using Doink, unless they went uber lame and did a clown vs clown fued.. (my God, the horror)

They'd have to get McDonalds to agree to let Ronald appear on WWE programming too which is unlikely to happen, although with WWE going PG now and more child friendly who knows, Maccy D's may well end up plastered on WWE PPV posters soon :lol
