Worst gimmicks in the past 8 years.
 
Go.

Two that immediately come to mind:

1. Chuck Palumbo and his biker gimmick - which was just a rip-off of 'Taker's American bad-ass gimmick.

2. The whole Deuce & Domino greaser gimmick.

Colin Daley. The lovable loser that no one could have cared less about.
Hornswaggle. A leprechaun? Really?

Eugene as a (thank you baby jesus) short lived heel.
Nick Dinsmore is a hell of a wrestler, but that gimmick was crap. A face Eugene was bad enough, but as a heel it was.......... bad. We're talking "Angry Video Game Nerd" bad.

KYR 12-12-2008 12:27 AM

3. Kerwin White was pretty forgettable too.

Who said I was right?

Hell, not everyone liked The Rock either.

The Optimist 12-12-2008 12:57 AM

I said you were right.

Vastardikai 12-12-2008 01:55 AM

Eugene, period.

Face or Heel.

Looking back, this is probably the worst gimmick since the Red Rooster in terms of damage done to a guy's career.

I don't think Dinsmore can EVER live that gimmick down. Just like how Terry Taylor is still called the Red Rooster to this day.

1. Kane
- His gimmick has been shit for the longest time. He isn't a monster anymore. He's had numerous relationships, all ending in disaster. He tried to kill the Undertaker, then became tag team champions with the Undertaker and then tried to kill him again in 2003-2004. He's simply not credible.

2. Zach Gowen
- 2003 was the shittest year for wrestling. He was pretty mobile for what he is but come on! Horrible gimmick with a horrible ending.

3. Any "authority figure vs top face star" angle...
You can't capture lightning in a bottle twice with the same bottle.

4. Eugene
- Terrible.

5. The Cabinet
Orlando Jordan and the Bashams play tag along to WWE Champion JBL.

There are too many, it's a sad case.

DaVe 12-12-2008 06:28 AM

Yes, out of everyone in the last 8 years, Kane is the number one worst gimmick.

:roll:

Edit:

And yes, out of every year in existence, 2003 was the shittest year in wrestling.

:roll:

Get out.

<font color=goldenrod>tbh, I like gimmicky wrestlers. They add a fresh feel to the show and a good break from guys who really have no gimmicks other than "guys who wrestle". So really, I don't dislike many of the recent gimmicks. Among the ones listed in this thread:

Eugene was hilarous initially...although admittedly it was depressing that the talented Nick Dinsmore couldn't show off his full talents. If they had given the gimmick to somebody who was only mediocre in the ring, it would have made me feel a bit better.

I loved Deuce 'n Domino...part of that might stem from the fact that they debuted as I was working on my high school production of Grease, and so essentially they were acting just like we were...but I enjoyed it. I think they could have done more with them than job them to hell after they lost the belts. And to this day, I still maintain that Domino's talents were wasted.

And Kerwin White was a fun gimmick as well. It gave Chavo something to do and he got heat...cheap heat yes...but heat nonetheless. People wanted to see him get beat down. Outside of the Eddie Guerrero tribute show, I kinda wish Chavo could have continued with that gimmick. I'm not sure if canning the gimmick was his call or WWE's.</font>

BigDaddyCool 12-12-2008 09:52 AM

I don't recall Eugene being a heel.

Rebboj, i mean Rellick. Wearing a mask under a mask? BTW, Rebboj is jobber backwards.

Judas whatever, to short to be a threatening monster, but does TNA care, no, do it anyhow.

Without even being a wrestler, Big Dick Johnson.

BigDaddyCool 12-12-2008 02:24 PM

TNA is pretty much a show case of crappy gimmicks.

-Steven Regal...a man's man.

-Ambassador of Quebec

-Buffy (appeared on RAW one time in 2000...was supposed to be heel and Stephanie McMahon's personal trainer).

-Henry "Beaver" Cleavage (Headbanger Mosh's gimmick for awhile when Thrasher was injured).

Oh oops! LOL. I forgot to see the part where it said "in the past 8 years."

In that case...

-My 'Buffy' and 'Ambassador of Quebec' examples are still valid

-One half of La Resistance had that one crap gimmick on RAW (not Sylvan Grenier's 'Ambassador' gimmick...but it was something else. I can't even remember the guy's name or gimmick).

-Zack Gowen was a faggot nigger lesbian.

-Gene Snitsky's recent gimmick.

BobBitchen 12-13-2008 12:55 AM

Forgot the Katie vick angle to .

Lock Jaw 12-13-2008 01:33 AM

You guys don't remember Eugene being heel because he was only a heel for like one show where he beat down somebody and yelled "I'm special!" at them, and then the next week he was back to being a face.

Ahhh yes...Katie Vick. That wasn't really a "gimmick" though....it was more of an angle.

Speaking of Angle, Eric Angle sucked a lot of nigger dick.

Err, most of that doesn't really have anything to do with a gimmick.

That out of the way, I'd like to nominate Vito's "Man in a Dress" shtick.

He's an Eagles fan, his opinions mean nothing.

As far as bad gimmicks go, Eugene is up there, as is Hornswoggle. God damn is he annoying now.

Agreed. I thought it was good for some cheap heat, but now it's just stupid. Isn't she a really good wrestler?

Yeah she is, but unfortunately she's RAW's version of Victoria now.
