I nominate Crazy Ken Patera. Seemed like a psycho even before his arrest. Who would mess with Kenny Patera in his prime?

Doink the Clown was also kinda creepy when he came up. Especially that one match when there were two Doinks!!!

A guy who come down wearing armour. When the mask came off he had another mask on underneath. He looked like Sadako of ‘The ring’ hunched over with long hair covering his face. He didn’t wrestle just used nerve holds and spat a mist.

edit probably wasn’t even WWE
for some reason sid justice
Well seeing his foot turn 180 in WCW scared me as a kid
^^^ THIS ^^^

Scared the shit out of me when he first took his 03 Mask off. I ran to my Mum shit scared saying where’s his hair gone 😂😂

You can tell I was only a young 8 year old then haha

Goldust. The first time I saw him was when he attacked Rob Van Dam. That facepaint coupled with the aggression he displayed freaked me out.
The Undertaker. I thought he'd murder my family. Then he became my favourite wrestler.
Big boss man. He suplexed me when I was 5 and still haven’t gotten over the emotional damage
Are we talking legit scared? No one, I grew up with late 80s early 90s WWF where they were all cartoon characters. I think probably the closest that alarmed me was the Snake Incident.
As a kid growing up going to Memphis house shows I had never really seen much WWF, until they started running shows in Nashville.

I was like 15 the first time my dad took me to a WWF show.

Andre vs Studd was the main event, which in typical WWF house show style took place mid way on the card.

The last match was Superfly Snuka vs George "The Animal" Steele.

I was one of the kids who ran to the entrance ways to see the wrestlers come out. When Steele came out he charged at the kids lined up to see him. Myself and all the kids watching fled as this wild beast of a man came charging towards us.

Those of you who only know him from his babyface sympathetic run will not understand the horror he put into every kid standing there that night, as we all ran for our lives.

He was truly scary. Little did I know he was just a math teacher wrestling in the summers for the WWF. I thought he was a maniac.

A couple of years later he would become a lovable face biting turnbuckles and carrying a stuffed animal to the ring.
