Baywatch-Logo“Bash at the Beach”
Season 6, Episode 15
2/19/1996

Some people stand in the darkness. Afraid to step into the light. Some people need to help somebody, when the edge of surrender’s in sight. When it comes crashing down and it hurts inside, you gotta take a stand it don’t help to hide. I am a real American. Forever and always, I’m always here.

brock_cena_title_win_imageWith Brock Lesnar having dominated John Cena at SummerSlam 2014 in a way nobody has ever done, and in a championship match no less, it’s only fitting The Art of Gimmickry explores the bad ass character. It’s safe to say that the idea or gimmick came about during the late 90’s, specifically around the Attitude Era. But not because of guys like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who was more of an anti-hero than a one-man wrecking machine.

I’m not that big a gamer, but being a huge wrestling fan I always made sure to play every wrestling video game I could get my hands on. While this feature won’t go in depth about certain wrestling games, for that you have Joe Gagne’s Funtime Pro Wrestling Arcade, I will highlight some of the more popular fictional wrestling characters in video game culture. First up, the former Mayor of Metro City, “Macho” Mike Haggar.
