Oz: The Worst Gimmick of 1991
Kevin Nash is lucky that his time in the WWE, when he was dressing up as Oz, didn’t ruin his wrestling career. I mean, just look at that outfit. The idea behind the character of Oz was that he was basically supposed to look like an evil version of the wizard. But the end result was something else. He ended up looking anything but intimidating.
By the end of 1991, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter named Oz as “the worst gimmick of the year.” That ranking marked the end of Oz for Kevin Nash (which comes as no surprise there). But Nash went on to reach great heights in the wrestling world as Diesel, who was a much fiercer presence in the ring.
