Lance Storm
The boring gimmick that Lance Storm received while working in WWE was actually a little jab at internet wrestling fans. Many viewed him as a guy that was just too boring to be a star. In actuality, though, Storm has a pretty good personality and a sense of humor backstage. WWE went with the gimmick in order to try to something to see if it would give him momentum.
April 13, 2014
Kamala
Back when he was a teenager in Mississippi, Kamala was a bit of a thief. He became known in town as a burglar who came from a poor family.

Arn Anderson
Even though the truth has been out there for several years now, a lot of wrestling fans are still under the belief that Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson are brothers in real life. They're not.

April 4, 2014
Uncle Elmer
Back during the 1980s, one of the most talked about segment in professional wrestling was when Uncle Elmer got married on national television.

March 24, 2014

March 23, 2014

March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Since he was the only professional wrestler in the history of the industry to have been trained by Ric Flair, Stan Lane paid homage to mentor very early on in his career. At one point in time, he used the name Stan Flair. He also went by Nature Boy Stan Lane, while making a name for himself in Florida.

March 21, 2014
Mike Rotunda
Back when he was with the NWA, Mike Rotunda had an amateur wrestler gimmick when he teamed with Rick Steiner. It was actually based on his real life athletic career in college. Rotunda really did wrestle at Syracuse University. He was never an All American, though.
March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Despite being one of the best performers in the history of professional wrestling, Ric Flair has opted against training others in the art of the game. In fact, the former NWA champion has only formally trained one person in his career. That man is Stan Lane, who formed the legendary Midnight Express tag team with Bobby Eaton during the 1980s.
March 20, 2014
Mr Fuji
When the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee made his debut in professional wrestling in 1965, there were not a lot of prominent Asia people in the country, so Harry Fujiwara, who was actually born in the United States, opted to stop using his real name and shortened it to Mr Fuji. It was easier for promoters and fans to spell and pronounce, and the move paid off rather well.
March 20, 2014
Bret Hart
Years before the Bret Hart screwjob in Montreal, Vince McMahon pulled the same trick on Wendi Richter. Since she would not sign a new contract with the company, McMahon wanted to take the belt off of her, so instead of telling her about it, the future WWE CEO opted to put the Fabulous Moolah in a mask. Along with the referee, Moolah changed the ending and took the belt off of Richter, whom the legendary performer trained.
March 20, 2014
Bryan Clark
Since the video game was sweeping the nation, WCW decided to capitalize on the popularity of the Mortal Kombat series by creating wrestling characters that were similar to the ones in the game.
