Gimmick Reversion


Watching Smackdown and “Yes Movement” Daniel Bryan got me thinking. When wrestlers revert to a prior gimmick it reeks of desperation to recapture better times

Hollywood reverts to Hulk

Triple H reverts to DX version

Chief Morley reverts to Val Venis

Unmasked Kane to Masked Kane

Paranoid Alliance Austin to Texas Rattlesnake

Really, the only success story I can think of was Bikertaker reverting to supernatural Taker and having an in ring career renaissance

In your opinion what has been the most successful gimmick reversion?

What’s been the worst?

Kane did well going back to the mask in 2010.  Worst had to be midlife crisis DX, it was just so sad.
