Duke Droese trading card

I was browsing through some pictures of 1995 WWF trading cards (it’s a cornucopia of WrestleCrap gimmicks!) on this excellent wrestling trading card site. 

I like this card because it shows ol’ Duke “The Dumpster” Droese on the job in the garbage dump… which is appropriate because mid-90’s WWF often reminds me of a garbage dump…

Okay, so he’s a garbage man- am I supposed to Cheer him, or Boo him?

And why?!

    The picture is probably an accurate depiction of what he is currently doing today.

      He’s a special needs teacher now, when he’s not selling drugs.

    I remember liking Duke Drose. I thought he would rise above his gimmick like Triple H ended up doing.

    You can tell the whole minimizing the wrestling philosophy started here. Most trading cards show athletes in action.

    Duke was a bit ahead of his time. Had he been in the late-90s Attitude Era, he would’ve been great in dumpster matches and hardcore matches with his signature trash can.
