Re: Who do you think has had the greatest gimmick of all-time?
I can understand why people are saying Undertaker, but if anybody else played Undertaker besides Mark Calaway, it would suck. The actual gimmick is bad, or, at least, the unaltered, early intention of the gimmick is bad. It could've quite easily gone the way of the Boogeyman or Papa Shango, but Calaway brought a charisma and a presence to the character that made it intimidating, rather than stupid.
Then again, like most gimmicks, Austin included, the biggest part of the success or failure of it is the person playing it, although the character of Austin wasn't created as a zombie, so.....yeah.
