Re: Scary gimmicks
Papa Shango. Those gags they rigged up scared the crap out of children (and some adults) everywhere. It was brilliant. Plus Charles Wright was great at pulling it off with his strange facial expressions and over the top promos. Bravo.
Honorable mention to evil Doink the Clown before he turned into a kids/comedy act.
"No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own.
Every man's heart one day beats it's final beat.
His lungs breathe their final breath.
And if what that man did in his life
makes the blood pulse through the body of others
and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life
then his essence, his spirit,
will be immortalized..
by the story tellers,
by the loyalty,
by the memory of those who honor him and make
the running the man did live forever."
