Default Top 5 wrestling gimmicks of all time?

Simple: what's your top 5?

1. The Undertaker: Will never be matched IMO

2. Mr McMahon: Especially 97-06. Dude was legit hated

3. Stone Cold Steve Austin: We all loved seeing him drink beer and beating the crap out of his boss

4. Kane: Love this character, Amazing back story, unfortunately he's booking over the years has been disappointing.

5. Edge: 06-08. Rated R Superstar was awesome.


Honorable mentions: HHH (heel), The Rock, Chris Jericho

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.

Default 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
