Wrestling has been around for generations. From Bruno Sammartino to Hulk Hogan to John Cena, every era has had their stars. Of course, not every star can shine so bright, and some wrestlers have had gimmicks that are hard to look back at fondly. For some, like Max Moon, a costume could be a career ender. For others, like Kane, it was just an unfortunate bump in the road of life. We’ve left no bell unrung in digging up the costumes that should have never seen the light of day. These are the worst looks professional wrestling has ever seen.
The Rock Never Looked So Bad
It’s been over 20 years since Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson made his debut with the WWE (then WWF) as Rocky Maivia. The character was adorned with what can only be described as party streamers. Surprisingly, this odd gimmick didn’t hurt his chances at success.
As Maivia, Johnson won the Intercontinental Title, beating Hunter Hearts Helmsley on Monday Night Raw. Two years later, Johnson rejected the Maivia persona and turned into the Rock, one of the most popular WWE personas of all time.
