My Top 5 CURRENT Gimmicks from WWE.

Rate this Entry
Everybody loves gimmicks. Especially when they are good gimmicks. So I tought I'd make my Top 5 of current WWE Superstars gimmicks. Here you go!

5. Johnny Curtis
It may be weird, but i just love this "Dirty Curty" persona he is doing right now. This whole walking shritless backstage and weird acting just makes me mark out for Curtis. Charisma of this guy also helps, but the gimmick is just great. Sometimes he is called "Nowadays Goldust". I agree. Let's get weird!

4. Dolph Ziggler
I know he is just this corny showing-off young mid-carder, just like current Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger, but the way he performs the character makes it great. He is great on the mic, great in the ring and this showing-off just looks natural for him. Oh, and his Theme Song helps a lot... But Vickie is burying him.

3. Bray Wyatt
Former Husky Harris is still in FCW, I know, but I feel like he is going to on to the Main Roster really soon. And he is... just great in every aspect of this character. Weird, Religious redneck in straw fedora (like he was described by somebody) just gave me chills during his promo in FCW. Bray just seems very natural in this character, which i personally love.

2. David Otunga
At first I must admit that I have a hell of respect for this guy. And his lawyer gimmick is really good and I'm buying him in this role. It may be because he really is a lawyer, but the way he developed his on-screen character just makes me appreciate his work.

1. Damien Sandow

Do I really have to explain this one? The Way that Damien talks, looks, works with his face expressions is simply unbelievable. And his Pink Attire just gets it done.

Honorable Mentions: Brodus Clay, The Ascension, Ryback.

    Otunga's gimmick is completely useless, even when he was with Laurinaitis. He is a lawyer, ok, so what ? WWE is doing nothing with his gimmick, and I'm sure they will drop that very soon

    Ziggler is not great on the mic, he is just above average. His only OK promo was vs Y2J. And no, Vickie is not burrying him.

    As for the others, as they just started in WWE, they're learning actually so let's see what they do, before I can say anything.

    Interesting list. I am not a fan of Otunga's gimmick, and am glad he hasn't been on tv since he is filming a movie. I haven't paid much attention to Johnny Curtis, but I do like your other three choices, Ziggler, Sandow, and especially Wyatt. I am a big Bray fan and hopefully when he comes back from injury he gets pushed big time

    Bray Wyatt is awesome. He along with Sandow is part of a dying breed that DEMANDS your attention. When these guys show up you can't help but think: "What is he gonna say or do now?"

    Zigglers gimmick is horrible. He gets by on his in ring ability, nothing about his gimmick is original or fresh. Ziggler is great in the ring, but he does not have a great gimmick, does not have great mic skills. Everytime I see a list of "Best" anything in WWe I see Zigglers name.I swear if somebody made a best luchadore ranking somebody on this site would rank Ziggler on it because one time 2 years ago he did a move off the top rope.

    Decent list, yet I'm kind of surprised to see Otunga appear on anyones "Top 5 Gimmicks". Nevertheless, it is YOUR list. Personally I find Zigglesworth rather bland. Yes, he can take a rather good bump, and he does have some decent "in-ring" skills, but the E' is pushing and building him to be the next WHC.... Something I believe he is far from ready to be.

    As for Wyatt and Sandow; IMO, two stars that have an inexplicable amount of talent.

    Good list, and enjoyed the read.

    Yes, that's why I'm happy they gave him this lawyer gimmick. Something unusual for guy with this kind of body.
