Worst gimmick in history

I have to go with TL Hopper. If anyone can upload some videos of his hysterically bad coming in promos I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: Worst Gimick In history

Ed Leslie had a string of them.

Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake
The Man With No Name
The Zodiac
The Booty Man (had to be the worst)
The Disciple

But, I'd say the all time worst in history was the Red Rooster, mainly because it single handedly ruined the career of the young, up & coming Terry Taylor. WWE had a potential mid card mainstay but killed that when they gave him that awful gimmick.

Re: Worst Gimick In history

I still say The Boogeyman could have been something impressive if they took him more seriously than as a joke gimmick. And if they man that portrayed him was actually a half decent wrestler.

Re: Worst Gimick In history

Glen Jacobs turned it around quite well didn't he? He went from having one of the worst gimmicks in history and worst themes to having one of the best gimmicks in history and best themes.
