You get some odd pictures when you google "wrestling gimmick". Wrestling is in some ways related to theater and other forms of show entertainment, it doesn't take a genius to figure that out. One of these ways is the portrayal of characters, roles that are played by the athletes in the ring. We have the dastardly heels and the heroic babyfaces. But then we get either gimmicks or just characters. Which are the best? The guys who work a character just based on characteristics and personality traits. Guys like Cena, Daniel Bryan or Kurt Angle. Or the guys with full out gimmicks, that live their characters. The Undertakers, Kane, Fandango, Hulk Hogan etc. Both types of characters bring different things to the table. The "realistic" guys anchor us in reality and one could argue are more relateable. But the more out there characters brings us a more big time feel to the show as a whole. Which do you prefer? Do you prefer the simple name, realistic character or full on gimmicks? Or perhaps you have some way of enjoying both?
