Why are all the best gimmicks midcard gimmicks?
 
It seems to me that the most awesome gimmicks in wrestling come from people who are midcarders.

John Cena's rapper gimmick was awesome and it is much better than his gimmick now. What is his gimmick? I wish he stayed the rapper for a little while in the main event.

People say Damien Sandow's gimmick is good but it won't move him up the card. Yet this gimmick is absolutely amazing. I think he could definitely do some things with it.

CM Punk's straight edge savior gimmick was outstanding and so is his Best in the World gimmick since he moved on to the main event. Yet I have a hard time between choosing which one I like better.

People say they couldn't take Cody seriously with the Dashing gimmick but what would his gimmick be otherwise?

When people just be themselves in the main event, I don't always agree with it. The only person who appears in the main event on a regular basis who has any gimmick these days is Del Rio and even then it's not drawn out the way that it should be. If people in the main event have some sort of gimmick I think it can take some twists and turns and implement some interesting storylines.

I'd argue that with midcarders, they're more willing to experiment with something new and sometimes they hit (because the misses aren't as important, since a main-eventer won't be damaged). The characters can be a little more eccentric, which adds to the fun as well

It's like music stars. They were good when they're underground, then they sell out to sell out stadiums.

Kane is sometimes a main eventer though and certainly a serious one.

With the Kane example, I'd argue that he came from an 'earlier' era, where gimmicks could still be pushed right into the main event. You had guys like The Undertaker up there, and before him someone like Ultimate Warrior. As we moved more and more towards a 'reality' direction, so too did the characters up top. It became guys with regular names (the John Cenas, the Randy Ortons) instead of guys with masks and superpowers.

I wouldn't necessarily call CM Punk a regular name though. If Ryback gets pushed to be a main eventer I wouldn't call that a main eventer either.

I just hope that we see some sort of gimmicks in the main event again.

Not all the best gimmicks are midcard only. The Undertaker n Razor Ramon are/were both great gimmicks, n neither of em looked out of place in a main event title match.
