Top 15 Most Impractical Wrestling Outfits of All Time

The life of a professional wrestler is not a simple one.

Between the hectic schedule, bouncing between hotel rooms, daily workouts, daily training, sticking to a strict diet and multiple public appearances, there isn't a whole lot that is simple.

However, there are those that have life much easier than others: those that pull up their tights or trunks, lace up their boots and go on with their careers as planned; those are the blessed wrestlers.

The true difficulty comes when you stick to that schedule, do those workouts, make those public appearances and then when it comes down to the nitty gritty, you have to wear something that's ridiculously impractical while you're slammed around in front of 15,000 people on a nightly basis.

"Forget tights and trunks," Chief Overlord McMahon says to his bright-eyed new recruits. "Here's a loincloth or some generic lingerie, go out there and get yourself over."

While some in this list have made their awkward wrestling outfits work, others have become an embarrassing part of wrestling folklore - and one of the top Google search result under "stupidest wrestling gear ever."

These are the men and women who truly have it tough. Spare a thought for these 15 professional wrestlers who have had to deal with wrestling in the most impractical gear possible.

Lingerie was designed for intimate moments and not to withstand the clawing, slapping and pulling of hair that all female competitors in the Attitude Era were limited to. When you consider most lingerie either resembles a doily or some dental floss, it's safe to say competing in a match where the sole aim is to expose your opponent's undergarments probably isn't the most practical thing ever. Oh WWE, you and your late-90s-early-00s casual sexism.
