20 Worst gimmicks in wrestling history
For every good wrestling gimmick, there are ten other that are so bad that they make you slap yourself in the face in disbelief. Sometimes promoters just throw some of their stupidest ideas at us, fans, hoping something will stick.
When I started compiling this list, the top 20 worst ever wrestling gimmicks, I didn’t know what I had in store for myself. Wrestling really has had some awful characters and storylines over the years. It took me a while to narrow down the final list and I’ve included both individual and tag-team gimmicks. After debating with myself for hours, here are the top 20 worst wrestling gimmicks of all time:
In 2004, a series of vignettes began to appear on WWE television of white-haired man in a hooded white robe. He spoke about sinners and the ills of society and how he’d bring the day of judgment. He considered himself the right hand of god, who’d trample upon evildoers. He was the reckoner, Mordecai. Mordecai’s character was that of a religious zealot. He was the albino anti-Undertaker. His light was the foil to the Undertaker’s darkness.
Sadly for Mordecai, his charisma and ability were also the opposite of the Undertaker’s. His bleached hair and all-white attire which was supposed to make him look scary just ended up making him look like a silly white rip-off of the Undertaker. Even his finishing move was copied; it was a version of The Undertaker’s Last Ride.
Mordecai, who was brought into battle with The Undertaker, was so terrible that he disappeared from TV screens before the feud had even begun. He was sent back to developmental faster than the time it takes The Undertaker to make his entrance nowadays. He eventually released from the company.
