SkinnersHat Posted April 10, 2021 Share Posted April 10, 2021 Hey all, my first post so go easy please & a happy ‘Mania weekend to all that will be watching. As the title says, gimmicks in different eras. Which gimmicks do you think could have worked as well or even better in another era? I think Rick The Model Martel could have been elevated to superstardom in an era where Instragram vanity is at an all time high. A few tweaks to update the character & the Arrogance would be right on the money I think. Lots of ways you could go with it too & the vignettes and promo material could be endless. A seriously dark, twisted, dare I say ‘Fiendish’ Doink would have fitted in well in the Attitude or even Ruthless Aggression era. A sure fit for the Ministry too. Could have even ridden the wave of the IT remakes & been quite over in the mid 2010s I feel. I have a few more I will post if this thread gains any traction & hopefully I’ll be reading a few of your own. Just to add - late 80s & early 90s didn’t have a well known Pirate gimmick which looking back would have fitted right in & it’s a wonder there’s wasn't one. Not even with the Goonies crossover in 85. The mind boggles. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
