Thought of the Day: Needs More Rico

Ignoring the fact that Rico had some of the most underutilized talent ever, that’s not exactly what I want to talk about today.This came to my attention on Smackdown last week: how many people in WWE have custom entrance attire anymore?  The answer is not many.  Almost every big name comes to the ring in their latest t-shirt so they can throw it to the crowd or take it off and sneer at the people.  I miss the days of Ric Flair robes, massive Randy Savage hats, Steve Austin vests, Undertaker’s trench coat, Randy Orton’s two bottles of baby oil, Trish’s cowboy hat and coat and Vader’s big helmet.  This is one area that TNA owns WWE in.  Roode has his robe, Bad Influence has the leather jackets and sunglasses, AJ has his hooded jacket.  Those things help.


Bring some of that stuff back so these guys can stand out a bit more rather than looking like the same idea over and over.

    Don’t forget Aries with his cape, James Storm with his long coat and cowboy hat, Bully with his vest and even Abyss with his long coat.

    I’ve been saying this for a while too. Most people that come out are so bland now. It’s all t-shirts now

    A few people have entrance attire that they only wear for PPVs, like Miz, Barrett and Bryan. And besides, why wouldn’t they wear their t-shirts? Those things directly affect their income.

    Austin wore his vest and made more on t-shirts than anyone ever.

    Funny this popped up as a Random Review, and now there’s Bayley, Balor, and so many more in nXt and LU doing this. It really does show how much it helps to just add some individuality.
