Re: Analyze this: Copied gimmicks that turned out to be a bigger success
I don't think you could classify this as a copied gimmick but Lex Luger took his name from Lex Luthor, his favorite villain.
As stated earlier a lot of wrestlers seemed to have "borrowed" from Superstar Billy Graham. The game Punch-Out even modeled Super Macho Man after him.
