I know it was Vince who came up with The Undertaker. Thats all I really know though. Anybody know anyone else that was the brain child of Vinnie Mac? Good AND Bad?

Marvin The Mutilator, Good thing Mick Foley convinced him to call him Mankind instead.

Are you kidding? MARVIN the Mutilator? Its amazing how a simple name change can completely make or a brake a gimmick. He probably wouldn't have gotten over if he came out to that.

I once read he based the Hunter Hearst Helmsley gimmick on some snobby neighbours in Greenwich.

You can bet Right to Censor was his idea,due to the backlash from the PTC.

I thought Hogan was Hogan before he met the McMahons.

As I recall he wanted the Undertaker to be called "Kane The Undertaker". I think it would have subtracted from the original Undertaker but I guess he thought of 2 in 1.

Chilly McFreeze, Austin went back and said how about Stone Cold...Well aren't all of them Vince's idea? Afterall he is the one that has to finally approve them or not!

Not really since approving them has nothing to do with them actually coming from your own brain.

True, but it is him that would get the credit afterall he is the owner :D, I really couldn't give a shit who originally came up with them, if Vince doesn't agree to it, it won't go out! Simples.

Was it? I forgot, on count of the fact i was 10 the last time I read Foleys book! I forgot everyone on here has to be correct about everything, and can't be wrong about something.

I thought the story was that Debra said that his hot drink would go "stone cold" and he decied it was a good ringname.
Actually around this time Debra was in WcW and still married to Mongo McMicheals. From what I remember it was actually his ex- wife, and mother of his children who said that.
