In today's era of professional wrestling or "sports entertainment," gimmicks are a thing of the past. Some gimmicks still slip through the cracks and are hit or miss with the fans. However, in the 1980-1990s, professional wrestling was full of talented wrestlers. Talent alone was not enough to get by though, so these wrestlers needed a gimmick and a good one to get over with the crowd. While some gimmicks were better than others, some gimmicks resulted in some rather gross and disgusting superstars. While they were not the most handsome men to look at or had the best bodies, they were still able to get over with the crowd. Some of these wrestlers were able to make a big impact from holding championships to even ending up in the WWE Hall Of Fame.
This list of superstars from the past and present have everything from missing teeth and bad hygiene. They had moves that put an opponent's face in their "junk," as their opponent prayed they showered at some point before their match or that at least their ring gear was clean. These superstars would use their armpits as a move, lick faces of referees, other wrestlers, or even lick the faces of fans in the arena! For some, it was not their actions or moves that made them gross, for some it could just simply be their bodies and ring attire that made them gross.

Mick Foley has had many personas over the course of his length pro wrestling career. One of his grosser personas was his first in WWE, Mankind. Mankind was a deranged superstar who would be seen holding a big rat, ripping out his own hair, and. in one match while on the apron, he was stabbing his own leg. While in his most famous match as Mankind with The Undertaker at Hell In The Cell in 1998, he was been thrown off the cell, then through the cell and was seen trying to push his tongue through a hole in his lip.

Yokozuna may never have had any gross moments, but his finishing move couldn't have been enjoyable. Also, since he wrestled barefoot, receiving a superkick to the face from someone who probably could not touch his feet is just gross enough.

5 The Boogeyman
4 The Nasty Boys (Brian Knobbs and Jerry Sags)
3 Vince McMahon
2 Bastion Booger
1 The Bushwhackers
The Bushwhackers were by far the grossest superstars of all time. These two would come to the ring in dirty ring gear and with missing teeth but what really sets them apart is that nobody, and I mean NOBODY, was safe from being licked by The Bushwhackers. While walking down to the ring, they would lick fans' faces on the way to the ring. Not only were fans victims of their face licking but the referees were victims too. If there is one thing people hate, it's having their face licked by gross looking men.
