The world of professional wrestling is a wacky and wonderful place where seemingly almost anything goes. We have seen pimps, tax collectors, garbage men, and let's not forget that one of the biggest legends the business has ever seen is supposedly an undead entity named The Undertaker.
Some wrestlers have also chosen to incorporate props into their unique characters. We say chosen, maybe in some cases those props were thrust upon them. Anyway one man whose entire gimmick revolved around a prop for a certain portion of his career was Al Snow. During the height of the Attitude Era Snow would bring a mannequin head within him to the ring. The head was rather imaginatively named well, Head.
Head was Al Snow's nearest and dearest friend, aside from the time or two that he decided to use that dear friend as a weapon. That friendship wasn't contained within the realms of WWE however. Snow revealed on a recent episode of The Steve Austin Show Unleashed that he would often take Head out to restaurants with him and even buy the inanimate object its own meal in an attempt to make fans who saw him do so believe more in his on screen character.
The topic of what lengths WWE Superstars should go to in order to protect their character is one that is much discussed in the present day, hence Austin and Snow broaching the subject on a podcast. With the presence of social media nowadays it is extremely difficult for wrestlers to keep their two worlds separate. Some try harder than others to do so and that's exactly why it is such a hot topic.
Most fans would probably be in favor of WWE Superstars being a little more dedicated when it comes to protecting their characters. What most would settle for though is those who are mortal enemies on screen not posing for photos together as opposed to them buying meals for mannequin heads. We admire the dedication though Al.
