Re: Top 5 wrestling gimmicks of all time?

My personal list.

1. Kamala The Ugandan Giant/Headhunter
2. La Parka
3. The Sheik/Sabu
4. Muta
5. Ultimate Warrior


Characters that truly captured the imagination. Note the first four don't even have speaking roles. Mic skills are important but highly overrated in the grand scheme.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Top 5 wrestling gimmicks of all time?

Yeah, my list is very similar to OP's. Taker, Kane, Mr. McMahon, SCSA, and I'd throw heel hhh in there too. I'll make a note that my list is based on my experience; 'all time' might be different as I did not experience original Hogan, Sammartino, etc, anything before like 97 or so
