It is only fitting that the last look at some of wrestling's creepiest characters happens on the "scariest" day of the year that being Halloween. Over the course of the last week we have looked back at guys like the Boogeyman and Kamala or another way to look at it is we looked at one from the past and another from the sort of present. For the last one I have picked two of the creepiest characters in the world of pro-wrestling and it was one from the WWE & one from WCW.
First I chose the infamous Yeti who debuted in the WCW following the Main Event of Halloween Havoc 1995 when The Giant defeated Hulk Hogan in his debut match for the World Title. The Yeti's appearance was designed to further this idea that the Dungeon of Doom was out to eradicate Hulkamania. The Yeti's debut is also known for being very infamous in itself due to the actions of his debut.
The WWE guy I chose to complete this series actually debuted in the company 18 years ago this month at a PPV called Bad Blood during the Main Event. (Very comparable in the debuts as both happened at the October PPV) The Main Event saw WWF World Champion Shawn Michaels go one on one against The Undertaker in the first Hell in a Cell Match. Vince McMahon's iconic of the monster at first sight was "That's gotta be....... That's gotta be Kane..... That's gotta be Kane!!!!" That's right it was 18 years ago this October when the Big Red Monster first appeared in the WWE. To this day Kane is constant of the WWE weekly television programs. The night he ripped the door off to enter Hell in a Cell nobody thought 18 years later his gimmick would have gotten that over or better around for this length of time.
