I thought i would do something fun, now remember guys this is just for fun, no essays on reasons or anything.

 

What if in some strange twist of logic, WWE went back the the late 80s and early 90s? And you had to put each modern day WWE wrestler back into a character of the past?

 

I'll list off from memory some of the players in that era and you decide who out of the modern load would fit that wrestler's gimmick. For example, i put down Hulk Hogan and I think most would say The Rock......

 

Gottit? Good, here we go...

 

Hulk Hogan

Bret the Hitman Hart

Macho King Randy Savage

Mr. Perfect

Million Dollar man

IRS

Barbarian

British Bulldog

Owen Hart

Pappa Shango

Lex Luger

Ric Flair

Sgt. Slaughter

The Big Boss man

Reaperman

Doink the clown

Yokozuna

Sid viscious/justice (etc)

Ultimate warrior

Texas Tornado

Mabel

Jake the snake roberts

the Model Rick Martel

Hacksaw Jim Duggan

 

Tag teams

The Nasty boyz

The Rockers

Legion of Doom

The Canadian Mounties

 

Can't think of any more

 

Well, should keep you having fun, all the best

All very interesting, thanks guys.

 

What I was trying to do with this post is see if WWE were reusing gimmicks but putting a modern stint on it.

 

However, what it has shown me is that each person sees WWE in their own perspective according to their bias towards or against a character.

 

It was all in good fun though, thanks again.
