I was just thinking earlier about the whole Owen and Triple H "The Game" thing and was trying to think of other guys who could have took on someone elses persona or gimmick if that guy was unavailable or hadn't been given it.

Obviously they wouldnt be a carbon copy as i think each gimmick or persona is just as much to do with there own personality as well as the way there written.For example I dont think Owen's character would have evolved into how Triples Character did by the early 00's.

Also some persona's come naturally and are just an extension of there own personality at the time (HBK,Flair,Hogan) and so the persona comes from them and not from writing as much.

So what im asking is who do you think could take on another Wrestlers persona and play and played the role as close to it as possible.

Zack Ryder could've played Hawkin's gimmick

Cena could've played R-Truth's

Austin could've played Orton's

Sting could've played Taker and vice-versa

Dr. Isaac Yankem could've played Kane

"Mean" Mark Callows could've played Taker

Swagger could've played Angle that could've played Bret that could've played Dynamite Kid

Bryan Danielson could've played Daniel Bryan

The Ringmaster could've played Stone Cold but not vice-versa

Luke Gallows could've played Festus who could've played George "The Animal" Steel

Immediately Drew McIntyre springs to mind of playing Randy Orton’s Viper gimmick. He wouldn’t be as agile as Orton but he will definitely fit the Viper gimmick to the core and possibly even better then Orton himself.

Zack Ryder can easily have the gimmick of the Miz, both comedy characters just one being a jobber and one getting a massive push, nothing really different from them.

Maybe this is quite a stretch but i think Ted DiBiase can play John Cena's "goody good man" character very well, i have a feeling he seems more natural as a babyface.

I think pretty much every big guy that has a respectable amount of charisma can play the old Kane. He was literally just a brick wall, he had Paul Bearer drawing the heat for him with his mic work, his moveset and mannerisms was a direct rip-off of the Undertaker.
