Adam Bomb may, to many, be a little more than a footnote in the history of 1990s WWE.

To me, though, he was a massively underrated and underused Superstar that would thrive in the current era.

Standing 6’6 and weighing in at almost 300lbs, Bryan Clark toiled around the wrestling scene in the late 1980s and early 1990s before being introduced as Adam Bomb in the WWF in 1993, managed by the irritating, yet successful, Johnny Polo.

Essentially, his character was a not-so-subtle nudge to an Atom Bomb, the man himself supposedly having survived such a disaster and hailing from Three Mile Island. Sporting coloured contact lenses, usually green or red, Bomb cut a menacing figure on his way to the ring. Yet despite his impressive look and size, the character never really took off in the company.

He made notable appearances at Survivor Series in 1993 and 1994 in losing efforts, likewise at Wrestlemania X when he was squashed by Earthquake in near-record time as WWE struggled to squeeze in matches on the night due to time constraints.

His WWF run came to an end in the summer of 1995 with his potential unfulfilled. He would go on to have moderate runs again in WCW and back with WWE before the end of his career, but there’s little doubt in my mind that Adam Bomb could excel if repackaged and represented as a new version of his 1990s self.
