This mans career is a long one, and many know his WWE tale before he donned the flamed/burned mask. Since his re-debut in '97 at the expense of The Undertaker - Kane has gone on to becoming one of the most destructive forces the WWE had seen. He dominated, and was somebody to fear. He gave the children in the audiences around the world nightmares, and struck the imagination of the much more seasoned fans. He brought a Jason Voorhee's vibe to the company around that time which added an aura of mystery to his presence.
Of course as fate would have it he would become more humanized as the years went on. I personally loved his dark and comical side because it was a personality that I could relate to at the time. He was able to pass along a joke without ever really truly losing any credibility once-so-ever. Sadly his original mask run ended at the hands of Triple H in 2003. His latest run with the mask is not letting me down in the least bit. He is the same monster I always knew him as and I find it fitting that his career will probably end with the mask as well (I hope).
Mankind, The Legend! His dark debut in '96 proved to be one that would cause eyes to arch around the world. It did not take Mankind long to distinguish himself as a gutsy man who had a few screws loose in his noggin. He was a very mysterious fellow that I had taken a liking to as the days rolled on by. My friends missed what I truly thought was amazing about this man, but I knew what I was talking about when I said that this man would go down in the books as one of the greatest.
Til' this very day I still watch his match against The Undertaker where he took him on in a Hell In A Cell match. It was pretty brutal and I was just shocked by how that man was able to take a beating like that and just keep going. I have mad respect for Mick's work and I will continue to be his supporter even long after his retirement from wrestling.
This man was just all around freaky! When he first ate Worms I cringed, because I did not expect him to do that nor did I expect him to bite off a boil(?) prop that Jillian Hall wore upon her face while she was still by the side of John Bradshaw Layfield. The Boogeyman had brought back a state of mystery that was lacking for quite awhile before he emerged on the scene. He caught my interest and I watched him closely through the remainder of his career.
Now his in-ring abilities escape me, but I really believe that he was an all around amazing character that should have been provided with more of a concrete chance then what he was given. He could have gone his whole career getting by on that character. But like all seemingly promising and or good things... They come to a sad and unfortunate end.
I only listed a few, and these are just SOME of my favorites. There were a ton of others, but I will leave those to be exposed for discussion. The same applies to the ones I had posted above as well. I encourage you guys to post historic moments, mysterious wrestlers or cartoonish characters that you thought were interesting or just completely FUNNY.
I hope you guys enjoy this random post.
