Wrestlers not in their signature looks

Recommended Posts

This idea popped into my head while posting in the "players on the right team, wrong uniform thread" and this immediately came to mind

 

Triple H, 2003

 

Here's the backstory from wwe.com

"...the gear was custom-created for The Game in 2003 to help him walk while recovering from a torn groin from a previous match with Goldberg. Not only were the shorts a dramatic departure from Triple H's signature trunks, they were so constricting that multiple people had to help him get into the shorts before he competed..."

Ahhhh, the Shartbreak Kid tights! (It was Surivor Series 2002, for what it's worth.)

Mean Mark Callous is always a good one:

Ric Flair as a big musclehead (and video proof it happened):

I could do this game all day (and probably will). Fun topic!

My ocd was in overdrive during this match. With the whole "unsanctioned" stipulation it would've been cool for trips to come out in his jean jacket ensemble to really play up the street fight gimmick

Here's Rick Rude (as Rick Rood) in trunks:

If you have the Network, a bunch of Mid-South episodes were added. Last night I watched a fun two-fer Marty Lunde do job duty to Stagger Lee (JYD in a Midnight Rider gimmick).

 

Here's young Double A, who apparently was a grizzled vet the second he began wrestling:

And Stagger Lee:

Side note - I've just noticed that hitting the space bar -- universal video control method to pause/play -- now takes you out of your video if you use the WWE Network Windows app. How incredibly stupid.

He was off steroids because that was when the steroid investigation against the WWF was heating up. So he wore the singlet to hide his no longer roided body.

The best proposed ending to the Anonymous Raw GM angle had a group of wrestlers tracing the signal to a production trailer. They kick in the door and it would have Kevin Nash in a green wizard hat.

Double A's mid-90s suburban dad look was the best.

DDP in a La Parka disguise (I remember that pop for the diamond cutter and unmasking being ridiculous).
