10 Legends That Wouldn't Make it in Modern Wrestling


10. Mexicools

This entry will cover several gimmicks that would not make it in the modern world. If they were to be covered individually it would get redundant. A list could even be made about such gimmicks. Such offenses include the Mexicools being regulated to essentially wrestling lawncare workers. All three luchadores are extremely talented. Hornswoggle being a leprechaun. Then further compounded by the fact that storyline made the Irishman Fit Finley his father. Tatanka and Chief Jay Strongbow both portrayed Indigenous Americans neither man being from the tribe their character was from. Nikolai Volkoff and the Iron Sheik portraying an enemy of the United States.
