    Oh, and whatever gimmick Vince Russo comes up with.

  2. Shane says:

    Why has THE Brian Kendrick been mentioned? That gimmick was awesome. Just booked like poo after the first few months.

    Worst gimmicks? Dok Hendrix, Stone Cold Shark Boy, Tiger Ali Singh, Babyface John Morrison, Sean Morley as fat old generic Val Venis in TNA, weird accent Booker T(not King Booker, the goofy gimmick he worked in TNA), Abyss, Prince Albert, Key, Eli Cottonwood, the 3 Man Band, the 4 Live Cru, Darren Young:Super Sayin, the Rock and Rave Infection, Seratonin, Kurt Angle: crippled wrestling pain pill machine, Samoa Joe’s penis face gimmick, Taz as a commentator, Don West, Amazing Red at least 5 years after anyone cared, Mike Awesome: that 70’s guy, Mike Awesome: fat chick thriller, Mike Awesome, the career killer, Blood Runs Cold, Jamison, Big Dick Johnson, Tank Abbott, Jeff Jarrett being taken seriously, Immortal, La Familia . That’s excluding ones that have been named a whole bunch. There’s so many, I could go for days. I think that’s good for now though. Special shout to all the guys who just suck regardless of gimmick. Michael McGillicuddy, I’m looking at you.

    Also Matt Hardy in any incarnation, besides V1.

  4. Clayton says:

    TL Hopper.

  6. HodizX58 says:

    I think manotaur, and the Gobbledy Gooker had to be the worst. Khali is just plain bad no matter what gimmick they give him because he so limited. Juan Cena and Mr. America were silly and they were intended to be taken lightly not taken seriously. The Lord Tensai gimmick is pretty awful too but what else are you supposed to do when you are huge and have a massive asian themed tattoo on your face? I mean it’s either wear a mask or be a asian monster(i know he’s not asian, but whatcha gonna do), it kinda limited.

  7. Devils Best Friend says:

    * NIKOLAI VOLKOFF (when face)
    * NALIZ

  8. MarkyMark says:

    How about any of the following:: The New Rockers,(Marty Jannetty and Lief Cassidy), The Beverley Brothers, The Dungeon of Doom, The Booty Man, The Stalker (Barry Windham), Justin Hawk Bradshaw, The Goon, Mantaur, Adam Bomb, That 70s Guy Mike Awesome, Val Venis, Low Down, The Shockmaster, The Blacktop Bully, The Human Oddities,

  9. Travis says:

    The gimmicks that made me absolutely cringe were all from the Dungeon of Doom. I can’t let Mantaur or the Shockmaster get off of the hook either.

  10. Shane says:

    @HodizX58 those face tattoos aren’t real dude

  11. matbar says:

    Beaver Cleavage.

  12. Guled says:

    I can’t forget that night where frank the stripper came & gyrated on vince mcmahon & eric bischoff at one point. WORST GIMMICK EVER for myself

  13. Mike says:

    Spirit Squad

  14. NITRO says:

    Kung Funaki was just horrible. The Sandman is a drunken idiot. The Biker Chuck Palumbo was just a cheap American Bad Ass knock off. The Be Like Me, DDP Gimmick.

  15. KiLLewskitt says:

    Arachnaman (WCW)

  16. Sinnful says:

    The Maestro, Men On a Mission, Viseria (When he wore the pjs), B2, Kaientai, Tugboat, Men at Work (Kanyon and somebody), The New Body Donnas, Rock-a-billy, The Goon, Akeem, Max Moon, Low Down, Ernest the Cat Miller, Wrath, High Voltage, The Patriot, American Males, Z-Man, El Dandy, Maven, Al Wilson, The Repoman, Rosey as S.H.IT.,

  17. G says:

    Brodus Clay. Need I say more?

  18. sicbink says:

    Don’t forget about Moppy!

  19. sean says:

    @HodizX58 the tattoo on Tensai’s face is just face paint for the gimmick.

    Worst gimmick of all time? Nathan Jones.

  20. Clayton says:
