#4 Loved: Mordecai

Morde
The Mordecai gimmick was short-lived

Vince McMahon loved the Mordecai gimmick so much that he was going to give Kevin Thorn a year-long push with the character, starting at Judgment Day in May 2004 and leading to a match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 21.

Dressed all in white, Mordecai was “a religious zealot who was enraged by sin”, in the words of Thorn, who debuted the character with a victory over Scotty 2 Hotty at Judgment Day.

Despite praise from Vince and The Undertaker, Mordecai was gone from WWE television in less than two months, with Thorn revealing to Sports Illustrated in 2017 that Vince ended his push after he got into a bar fight that led to a lawsuit.
