5 Wrestlers Perfect For Halloween
You could make the argument that a number of wrestlers are just playing a part and, as such, they all are perfect for Halloween. But a few stand out as perfect for Halloween, mostly because of the characters they portrayed in the squared circle.
The Undertaker – For most of his wrestling career, he has been “The Deadman,” a mysterious, almost monstrous behemoth of a grappler. Competing in casket matches and buried alive matches only helped to enhanced the ominous aura of this wrestler.
Kane – If there was a wrestling character that was going to compete with the Undertaker, it would be Kane. A monstrous aggressor, Kane was often pitted against his “half-brother.” That is when he and the Undertaker were not joined together as the Brothers of Destruction. Even without the mask, he was billed as a monster.
The Boogeyman – This one was quite the character. An unusual wrestler, his ring entrance would include smashing a big alarm clock on his head. And then there were the worms, live worms, which he would eat.
The Brood – Not really one wrestler, but the combination of Edge, Christian and Gangrel. While Edge and Christian at the time were billed as living a “Gothic lifestyle” Gangrel had been portrayed as a full on vampire with fangs and a chalice of blood.
Mankind – One of the many wrestling personalities of Mick Foley, Mankind was a monstrous masked wrestler. Granted, Mick Foley’s other character, Cactus Jack, was a bit crazy, too, but Mankind would hang out in boiler rooms and pull out his own hair.
