League Assignment- BRING BACK Gimmicks!

Yes it is League of Extraordinary bloggers time.  I see everyone has done their's already so it is time for me....Bring back GIMMICKS in wrestling!  The kid side of me marveled when we had a clown, garbage man, plumber, Hockey player, Dead Man, and Hillbilly wrestling.  Everyone in wrestling goes by their real names or a fake madeup name like Seth Rollins etc.  BORING!
Wrestling doesn't have the big fight feel anymore with people using real names.  Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant....Wow!  What a feud.  These characters were larger than life.  Comic books come to life.  I cannot get excited over BORING names like John Cena...

Wrestlers today do not even wear robes NOR do they have nicknames.  If ya can't give me a gimmick, how about a nickname?  Nature boy Ric Flair...Greg the Hammer Valentine.  Now it is true that Randy Orton is SOMETIMES called the Viper but it is NOT incorporated in his ring introduction.  

I miss the cheesiness of wrestling.  Bring it back.  It is FAR to realistic and winds up as uninteresting today.

    1. Just because one gimmick has been around 3 months doesn't mean that all gimmicks are coming back.
