Hailing from "The Outer Reaches Of Your Mind," Demento was known for his unique, nightmarish look. Clad in black garb and wearing a pointy black beard, Demento intimidated his opponents and main-evented the first Monday Night Raw. The fact that he talked to voices in his head added to the overall persona.
Wanna hear something really scary?
Professional wrestling has always had its share of larger-than-life monsters, freaks and horrors that terrorized your favorites (or perhaps you root for the monsters?). They bite, they claw, they wear masks, fright wigs and makeup and generally, these aren't the type of people you'd want to meet in a dark alley.
In compiling this Top 50 list, we looked at some of the most offbeat, unusual and yes, scary wrestlers (particularly over the past three decades -- so that we can largely speak from experience). The more the wrestler looks like they'd be as much at home trick or treating as they would be inside of a Stephen King novel, the higher they rank on this list.
Ready? Here we go!
Dreamed up in the late-1990s through a partnership between WCW and KISS, The KISS Demon dressed like (pre-plastic surgery) Gene Simmons, with the famous Demon facepaint, blood spewing from his mouth and platform boots. In fact... KISS themselves would have been an intimidating wrestling faction as is.
We mentioned Kevin Sullivan earlier. In 1995, The Taskmaster created The Dungeon of Doom in WCW, a faction that included The Yeti, The Shark, Kamala, The Zodiac, Meng and half-a-dozen others. Even if you knew nothing else about the ghoulish group, their names alone make the faction true Hallowe'en Horrors.
