Default Re: Analyze This: Advent of Supernatural/Dark gimmicks

I'd push it back even further, although the darker gimmicks were a lot more culture/race related. The original Shiek, Abdullah the Butcher, Bruiser Brody, Kamala, The Wild Samoans and Kabuki to name a few. All had an aura of mystery and danger but it wasn't until WWF started to blow kayfabe out of the water that things were being passed off as 'supernatural'.
