The Worst Wrestling Gimmicks

Updated April 16, 2019 6.9k votes 559 voters 13.4k views35 items

This is a list of the worst wrestling gimmicks of all time. A "gimmick" is a character portrayed in the ring by the real male or female wrestler. Because wrestling is fake. BUT IT'S STILL REAL TO ME, DAMN IT!! Seriously, there is nothing better in wrestling than when you can completely buy into the characters and the stories being presented to you on screen, in the ring. For example, The Undertaker is not and should not be on this list even though his "gimmick" is that he's a dead person. He's a deceased person that wrestles and does magic tricks. But, 'Taker committed hard and we all bought into it, and we continue to buy into it, and he's one of the greatest of all time.

That being said, this list is about the times where even us wrestling fans had to draw a line in the sand. When even we had to say enough is enough of this garbage.

This is a list of the absolute worst wrestling gimmicks in history, ever... and hopefully forever. Vote for the gimmick you think should receive top honors as the all time worst right now! Everything is fair game! WWE, WCW, ECW, TNA, LUCHA, WHATEVER!

    Fred Ottman gave us the greatest gift. He later became known as Typhoon and Tugboat.

    Thank you, Hector Guerrero. The Gooker debuted at the 1990 Survivor Series.

    WCW was written, I believe, by LSD.
