Ringmaster was terrible bc of WHO it was given to and worse in hindsight with what Austin became, but I really think nostalgia causes y'all to CRAZY overrate Papa Shango when all his shit was terrible, from his shitty squashes using "voodoo spells" to that terrible Warrior feud to missing his cue at 'Mania so Sid had to kick out of the Leg Drop :lmao (Not really a knock on the gimmick there, but still hilarious.) Only thing good I'll say about Shango is it was a pretty cool look.

To be fair Shango said they missed the cue for him backstage.

Shango was a shit gimmick no doubt but it was so bad it was actually entertaining, besides it was the 90's and you could get away with that stuff:lmao

The Ringmaster was a 1980's outdated gimmick and worst it was given to the wrong person. Because of that I think it might go far in the tourney.

I feel like I’m the only one that put Ringmaster on their list and I only did it because of what Austin would be come.

But Papa Shango was cool. Not even the worst Charles Wright gimmick if we’re being honest

I think you and Deezy both did, but if not him then someone else definitely did bc he was on at least two lists, maybe even three.

For the time it happened I don't see what was wrong Papa Shango's gimmick. Shit legit creeped me out as a kid. This shouldn't even be remotely close.
