Max Moon Didn’t Take Off
The story of WWE’s character Max Moon is strange, to say the least. The character was designed and created for Konnan, who was one of the more controversial figures in wrestling at the time. But when he had issues with Vince McMahon after the $13,000 moon suit was made, Konnan was fired.
But the network didn’t want to waste such a “cool” (really?) and futuristic suit with built-in pyrotechnics (wooowww)! So the character of Max Moon and the moon suit that came along it was given to Paul Diamond, who was the only other wrestler that could physically fit into the suit. His existence was short-lived, though, and Max Moon was rarely used in fights.
Next up, a wizard of all things!
