5 Scariest Wrestlers of All Time
 
I am going with 60% Territory guys. And I am deliberately omitting some memorable ones for discussion sake. This is not a definitive list, though you could probably make a case for my top two belonging there.

5. Ox Baker: That dude just LOOKED evil, with the eternal scowl only highlighted by his spiky eyebrows and handlebar mustache and physically imposing at 6'6" and 350lbs. He often had shirts that said things like "You WILL Hate Me!" and "Big, Mean, and Ugly!" And then you have the Heart Punch, which killed two men, as the stories go.

4. The Zodiac: No. Not Ed Leslie's 386th failed gimmick in WCW. The Zodiac I refer to is a character from Stampede Wrestling out of Calgary, and was portrayed by Barry Orton, aka Barry O, aka Randy Orton's uncle. He was flanked by Jason the Terrible and he had some out there promos. I'm talking Bray Wyatt would listen to them and say "That's cryptic, man."

3. "Maniac" Mark Lewin/Purple Haze: The most believably insane wrestler of all time. He was a monster of a man (again) who in Florida (as Purple Haze) would rise out of the Ocean. His sleeper hold made him a controversial figure, as he often wouldn't "wake them up." Gary Hart, Kevin Sullivan, and many others tried to control him and were barely successful. One of the most influential wrestlers of all time, influencing the likes of Bruiser Brody and #1 on this list, among others.

2. Road Warriors: Two huge mountain of men (especially for their time), who come down the ring with spiked leather, weird haircuts, and wild painted faces. Nobody looked like them at the time. People have tried to imitate them (ahemDemolitionahem), but none could duplicate them.

1. Undertaker: Admit it, when you were a kid, you bought into the aura. We all did. You hear the toning of the bell, it suddenly feels like its dropped 10 degrees.

In any event, feel free to discuss. And by all means, bring up the ones I didn't mention.

If you are talking earlier kayfabe stuff, Wild Samoans?

As a child, my brother was genuinely terrified of Papa Shango and Nailz

Boogeyman /thread

The Dastardly One 10-31-2017 10:30 PM

wouldn't wake them up? Kayfabe dead?

Lock Jaw 10-31-2017 10:59 PM

I wasn't scared of The Undertaker at all as a kid.

Was scared by Papa Shango, though..... man, when he made Ultimate Warrior throw up..... traumatized me......

Destor 11-01-2017 12:31 AM

The Original Sheik

Really believed he might kill people

This was late '70s and early '80s. Kayfabe was quite alive.

Seph 11-01-2017 07:49 AM

Papa Shango, Nailz, Original Shiek (believed he might kill people, like Destor said), New Jack (because he probably WOULD actually kill people), BRAUN STROWMAN. Snitsky gets an honorable mention.

Oh i know but would they say he actually killed jobbers?

Destor 11-01-2017 11:56 AM

No it was more an urban legend. "I heard he killed two men with the heart punch" not like they had a guy die in the ring.

owenbrown 11-01-2017 01:15 PM

Nobody mentioning Meng/Haku ?

1 died of a heart attack after the match. The other of a burst appendix three days later. Both were blamed on Baker, to give him heat.

Fair enough

Fignuts 11-01-2017 03:29 PM

1. The Shiek
2. Mister Pogo
3. Tiger Jeet Singh
4. Bruiser Brody
5. Minoru Suzuki

Fignuts 11-01-2017 03:33 PM

Honorable mentions: Taz(ecw), Dump Matsumoto, Sheepherders

Fignuts 11-01-2017 03:34 PM

Also, New Jack. Kind of shocked he never accidently killed someone.

Emperor Smeat 11-01-2017 04:58 PM

Undertaker during his body bag phase. Used to thought as a kid he killed his opponents after matches if they got the bag treatment since you never saw them again on tv.

Cool King 11-01-2017 05:18 PM

Doink The Clown used to creep me out as a kid.

Loose Cannon 11-02-2017 09:08 AM

Matt Borne as Doink. He perfected that gimmick.

Bad News Gertner 11-02-2017 10:39 AM

Freddie Blassie in Japan was terrifying to crowds

Heyman 11-02-2017 11:06 AM

For some reason, Serena in CM's Punk's 'Straight Edge' stable used to freak me out.

rez 11-03-2017 08:12 AM

Disco Inferno

Bald chicks always freak me out.

Blue Demon 11-03-2017 09:06 AM

Nailz used to kinda creep me out.....his voice did it.

Jordan X 11-03-2017 12:12 PM

Braun fucking Strowman

Purgatory 11-03-2017 01:52 PM

Didn't he used to file his teeth and bite people?

DAMN iNATOR 11-04-2017 10:54 PM

Ox Baker also appeared on TPiR in 1981, nearly 30 years before eventual WWE Champion The Brian Kendrick.

Yeah. He actually would sometimes wrestle at the local news station studios way back.

His nephew Sabu was a certified Badass too.

A new theory: when John Stossel gets angry, he becomes Dan Severn.

Also, Dan may be the second most important MMA performer behind Royce Gracie in the US.

Too many stories of what a fragile little teddy bear he was, but at the time, he seemed totally legit.
