Your favourite gimmick from the birth of WWF till the present day....

As the title suggests....your favourite gimmick of all time, heel, tweener, face...whatever. Doesn't have to be who has/had the greatest gimmick, just your preference...

Have fun....

BTW - my choices are;

Goldust
HHH
HBK
Undertaker
DX

to name a few

The Swagger Soaring Eagle was awesome! Why did they kill him off :(

I'd have to say The Undertaker, the whole mystique is cool. And if a dead person type gimmick was done at any other time it would have been laughed at.

If you would have asked me this question when I was a teenager without hesitation I would have answered The Godfather, for obvious reasons. Looking back now I would have to say the Lying Cheating and Stealing Eddie Guerrero.

As well as the stars already mentioned i have to say
1. The Rock 97-98(leader of the nation and the corporate champ) i was pissed he turned face, i would have kept him heel forever his heel promos were gold.

2. Ric Flair 1992 (the real world champion gimmick) Learn to love it Fatboy cos its the best thing wooooooooooo goin today.

Ok so im not really sure if these are gimmicks but once a wrestler changes heel to face its almost like a new gimmick.

Y2Js arrival to WWF - and the personality he brought to it.

The Ringmaster
Rocky Miavia
The Connecticut Blueblood

But besides them...

Stone Cole Steve Austin
Kurt Angle as The Olympic Hero
Mankind in the mid 90's
Jake The Snake Roberts
CM Punk as our straight edge savior

I'm sure ill get heat for that last one, but his promo during the 2010 royal rumble sold me.

I was a huge Surfer and Crow Sting mark when I was younger. The Dungeon of Doom had a lot of weird characters in it. The Big Show when he would dress as other wrestlers. The Godfather was pure gold. The Heavyweight Holly's. Too Cool w/ Rikishi. So many good gimmicks to go around.

I have a few:

1. CM Punk's Straight Edge Savior gimmick was fantastic. Although it's weird that a guy preaching about a drug-free lifestyle would get boo'ed by kids.
2. The Rock's run in the Corporation. He was such an arrogant douchebag.
3. Jericho's Y2J character. Same as the Rock's.
4. Austin. 'Nuff said.
5. Triple H's Game gimmick until the brand extension. Great vicious heel.

I don't know if this has been mentioned in that much detail but I have to nominate HHH. From 1999-2002, he was fantastic and his heel promos should be noted and Orton needs to watch it back. From attacking Austin with the snake thing (remember that bizarre storyline?) to the Corporation and double crossing X Pac to help Shane and the Two Man Power Trip. His fueds with Cactus Jack from 97 and the phenomenal street fight at the Rumble in 2000 were fantastic and even his clashes with Jericho brought the best out of both of them. The dude was brutal with his beatdowns of Orton both as a heel and face too.

Eddie Guerrero - If you're not cheating you're not trying ;D
The Dibiase sr, JBL, Del Rio gimmick
Takers deadman gimmick
Orton when he is heel
and CM Punks straight edge lifestyle gimmick, works with face or heel :)

In that order as well.

Mr. McMahon

Stone Cold.

I'll have to write a blog to explain why he had the best gimmick and the most successful one
