Lost gimmicks found
Over the years we have seen many gimmicks, angles and props used in squared circle. In their day, they had us hooked but have you ever wondered where they are today. After months of in-depth research, I have tracked down some of them and offer this update.
Evad (Dave) Sullivan - Kimberly's smitten suitor hasn't been seen for a while. He is currently the executive director of personnel for D.A.M. - Mothers Against Dyslexia.
Undertaker's Gold Urn - Given to Mike Tyson as a gift at Wrestlemania - currently enjoying an active career as a part of Iron Mike's dental work.
Mathilda - British Bulldog's mascot. To capitalize on the recent resurgence in wrestling and the Lewinsky affair, Mathilda is writing a book exposing wrestling called " I was Vince's b-tch".
O.M. - Oscar and Mo - The two remaining members of M.O.M. are planning a return to the ring. They have teamed up with Woman and Beulah and are WWF bound under the name " W.O.M.B."
Arrogance - Rick Martel's cologne - The last drop was used before Eric Bischoff's interview on TSN last year when he proclaimed "We're beating them so bad in the ratings Tuesdays aren't fun anymore."
Sting's Crow - Last seen in the rafters...Eric Bischoff's Tuesday afternoon meal (Usually served around 4 p.m.).
Johnny B. Badd's BADD Blaster - Hanging over Marc Mero's fireplace with the following insciption : Memories of A Black Man.
A piece of news I uncovered in my research that will shock the wrestling world is that Ivory's scarf has been signed to a 3 year - $12 million contract by WCW. They currently don't have an angle planned for the scarf but its expected to join the nWo Black and White and will dethrone Stevie Ray.
