Retarded Rickey. Rickey Shane Page did it when he first started wrestling. He's described it as "a guy making boloney and marshmallow sandwiches and throwing them at people". Unfortunately I don't think there is any footage of it. At least not online.

Aww, indy as fuck gimmicks are part of the charm of grassroots and smaller scale wrestling. What’s pro wrestling without some cheap laughs and bizarre humour?

And The Colony is awesome. What do you have against ants? And hey, who doesn't like ice cream?

Really not too far off from Eugene in the WWE.

As for the Colony, I kind of think like 90% of CHIkARA is insanity. It's part of why I love it. Quackenbush has really tried to make a family friendly promotion with compelling stories, and the Colony is just part of it. Now, Colony Xtreme force is a whole other can of worms!

Re: Weirdest Indie Gimmick

People really overblow the weirdness of some Chikara gimmicks. Stuff like the grenade stands out because it's exceptionally rare, most of the time it's just awesome wrestling. Like, yeah, The Colony are ants but they're mostly characterized as hard working good guys with some trust issues because they've been screwed with so many times. They've got more well rounded characters than just about anyone in wrestling.

Re: Weirdest Indie Gimmick

Stone Cold ET, Dr. Cube, Bloc Party, Baltic Siege, many CHIKARA and Wrestling Is... gimmicks.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Re: Weirdest Indie Gimmick

There was a show at my local sports hall, and a guy came out dressed as the Undertaker with his entrance and everything, slow and brooding. Got into the ring, got on the apron for a tag match, stood there whilst the match went on without getting tagged in, the match finished and he got into the ring, posed on the corner and left.

Not weird but just... Pointless.

Shockwave the Robot, but he's a good weird.

I was thinking of Shockwave as well.


If we're going local it would be Good Lord Willing.



His catch phrase is, "You Shut your Mouth!" that he says in a terrible fake English accent that he says all the time. I was at a show once and he had someone in an arm bar and I shouted out, "Perfectly executed!" and his response was, "Thank you, now You Shut Your Mouth!"

Re: Weirdest Indie Gimmick

There is an indy near me with a bunch of poor gimmicks from the local wrestling school.

Gimmicks include: A Scientist, A Vampire, A Traffic Cop, A dude playing a character from a fish finger commercial from like 3 years ago, A Space Boy, A Gladiator, A Magician and tons of other crappy gimmicks that nobody really cares for.

These guys are on every show so whilst it's cool to see a vampire in the opening match and then the guy from the fish finger commercial it does get very old very quickly when all these guys are trotted out with a gimmick that is way over the top.
