#5 R-Truth's confused persona


R-Truth didn't do much in his initial WWE run in the early 2000s, and came back to the company years later after an amazing stint in TNA. This time too, Truth turned into a jobber, with nothing going on for him on the main roster.


Soon, Truth began showing off a weird side of himself. The segments that followed saw Truth acting like someone who seriously needed some psychiatric help. Somehow, this persona became such a huge hit among the fans, R-Truth still dons it to an extent.

A string of hilarious segments came out of this idea. R-Truth talking to an invisible kid named "Little Jimmy", Truth cutting a promo on possibly winning the Money In The Bank match even though he wasn't in the match, and him confusing the Royal Rumble match for a Ladder match, are just a few gems that show how Truth turned an absurd gimmick into an intriguing one.
