    Funny how they tried to turn such an odd gimmick into a babyface cash cow. You could say…it bombed!

    Somebody circled Adam Bomb’s bomb toy in that as too.
    You know someone was going to have a very merry Christmas that year!
    They were going to head back to school after break wearing their Adam Bomb T-shirt, sunglasses, and hat. Their Adam Bomb bomb toy would be displayed in a place of prominence on their bedroom dresser.
    They just knew that Adam Bomb was going to win the Royal Rumble that year.

    Poor Shawn Michaels only has one item of merchandise on that page. WWF knew they had two potential top stars at the time, either Michaels or Adam Bomb. They were pretty sure that the fans were going to lean towards Adam Bomb though, based on that particular page.
    Imagine the massive buy-rate for Summer Slam headlined by Vader versus dream opponent…Adam Bomb.

    It was one of the weirdest face turns in WWF history. He hadn’t even been a heel that long before they decided that the guy would obviously do far better as a good guy.
    Everyone would take pity on the poor guy, who was hideously mutated by the radiation leak.
