Top 5 funniest superstars in WWE today
There are ample amounts of superstars and divas in the WWE who can get a laugh out of the audinece, intentionally or unintentionally. It is an art to get the desired reaction be it tension, annoyance or laughter. Usually, the ones who get the task to be funny end up being jobbers or never really get to be a main event talent.But this list consists of a jobber and a couple of superstars who can really, maybe make a transition into the main event scene some day.Here are the top 5 funniest men in WWE today
#1 Damien Sandow
He is undoubtedly the funniest superstar in the WWE. Damien Sandow really dedicates himself to all his gimmicks. Just when you thought that his career is over after SuperCena trampled his Money In The Bank opportunity, he has made a comeback through the most unlikely way.
Sandow’s first stint with the WWE was as Idol Stevens, which did not really click with the audience. He left for the Independent Circuit thereafter and after a few years came back to the WWE as the Intellectual Savior of the Masses. That gimmick worked but the WWE never really utilised to its full potential. Then came a flurry of one-night gimmicks and then came Damien Mizdow.
He has gotten over solely on the basis of copying Miz. He’s better at being The Miz than Miz.
#2 Heath Slater
So, here’s a fact- the fans adore Slater. His legend was created after his back to back to back losses to WWE legends on the road to Raw 1000. He defeated Seth Rollins in spectacular manner and the next week he defeated Ziggler by countout. The point to note is that the hugely over babyface Ziggler wasn’t being cheered in this match. The audience were firmly behind Slater. He was the underdog and quite apparently the favorite.
He’s really able to show how funny he can be on teh JBL Cole Show.
With all due seriousness, he has made a terrific comeback and he looks like a much better wrestler.
WWE has a plethora of strange characters like Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose but they are given the opportunity to add depth to their gimmicks. There is a method to their madness, whereas Goldust has always been considered the epitome of bizzare. His promos always get the laughs and they are enchanting in their own way.
The only difference between him and the top 2 is that he comes out looking as a better wrestller and character. How many really thought that it was really badass of Goldust to come face to face with Kane after the Corporate stooge interrupted Ambrose and Rollins’ Lumberjack match?
If Goldust is in this list, can Stardust be far away?
Cody Rhodes had a spectacular make over in the form of the Starry Stardust. And the transformation has been amazing- his promos, his red lenses, his antics.
All of his backstage promos have revealed a lot of character and has given him the opportunity to have good matches and still get the laughs. All of this has played a major role in making the Dust Brothers the tag team champions
#5 Erick Rowan
Okay, this isn’t really a promising thing for Rowan, when his former teammates Harper and Wyatt are set for major pushes into the territory taken seriously in the WWE.But in the past two weeks, he’s had fleeting appearances on Raw which have been quite funny.
He can take inspiration from Sandow and Slater to make the best out of a particular situation. His reaction to the film See No Evil and Renee Young were worth all the laughs.
