Out of place wrestlers

Recommended Posts

Jimmy Snuka rocking up in the WWF in the September 1993 comp. Christ, I'd forgotten that. Looks about 90 even then.

 Slightly different tack, but something mentioned in the NWA thread: Eddie Kingston really doesn't look or sound like he belongs there. His overall character is just so out of keeping with the retro, family-friendly aesthetic; he looks, behaves, and sounds more like he should be in MLW or AEW. The only way he might fit in is if he was portrayed as being the "dangerous" or "edgy" guy on the roster, but he's just put across as an urban tough guy. It's massively out of place because the other tough guy characters are all comparatively toned down in terms of language and mannerism.

This is a bit of a random one, but Kid Kash felt very out of place in WWE. He was never really given much of a character, yet still became Cruiserweight Champion. It felt really odd to see him there and sure enough his stint was relatively short lived.

I used to really like his Velocity fodder tag team with Jamie Noble. But yeah, he was very different to ECW Kid Kash.

Furnas & LaFon always seem out of place to me whenever I watch some old WWE back. At the time WWE were in that odd place where they were embracing dafter gimmicks and slowly transitioning to what would eventually become Attitude, these two boring bastards stood out like a sore thumb.

The Public Enemy in WCW and WWE. They didn't deserve that APA beatdown they got but my word they looked small time in both.

 

PG-13 in ECW was weird. They were so slick with that Memphis style they got over though.

Public Enemy were the absolute pits. They would have looked out of place in their own house.

Apart from Raven, did anyone mainly known as an ECW guy look right anywhere else? I can't think of many. Rhyno and Tajiri probably had longer in WWE than ECW so I don't particularly think of them in this but maybe they'd count.

RVD's a good shout. Another who is far more a WWE wrestler than ECW overall though.

Tazz's out of place look is pretty much why they lost interest in him after 15 minutes so he'd qualify comfotably for me.

I couldn't believe how small Tazz was when he debuted. I liked him still, but he looked minuscule and completely out of place. His boilersuit gear was shitty as well.

Sabu felt so out of place wherever he went outside of ECW, his stints in WWE, WCW and TNA were all so strange.

The Dudleys looked great, and even if they didn't, the 3D alone would've got them over.

They only looked great once they got out of the nasty tie-dye though. They had that for a little while and look distinctly small-time.
