Imagine that you somehow sucked all of the charisma out of Scott Steiner and put him in a karate gimmick a six year old wouldn’t believe. Well that’s precisely what happened to Billy Ghraham and here’s a promo to prove it.

Paul, I think you’ve stumbled onto the cure for Insomnia!

Zzz…

    Superstar looks like he’s reading his promo off cue cards. Karate Billy was a awful gimmick and killed off his days as a big draw. His personality went from being SUPERSTAR BILLY GRAHAM into being Billy Gunn.

    You can so easily see he thought it was stupid, and it was.

    Karate gimmicks stink. Always have, always will.

    I like Shoot Style wrestling which has plenty of martial arts strikes, but no one is portrayed as a karate expert. The shoot style wrestlers know how to use the techniques and they just use them.

    A guy who hasn’t mastered something but portray a character that does is cheesy.

    Examples include Van Hammer’s guitar, Shane Douglas’ skateboard and Larry Zybysko’s nunchucks

      Van Hammer was the bestest. Was he ever inducted here?

    • PaulS says:

      I think what separated Larry Zabisco’s Martial Arts gimmick from other ones is that I think we weren’t supposed to believe for a second he was a karate master. He was just a guy who wanted people to think he was a badass and was using the nunchucks to cheat even though he couldn’t swing them properly.

    Graham’s hair was for promos like Samson’s hair was for strength…
