10 WWE Superstars In Desperate Need Of An Image Update

All the gear, no idea.


Thankfully, we are far removed from the nondescript, identikit attire of the tiresome turn of the decade.

With few exceptions, so many of the Florida Championship Wrestling graduates emerged on the main roster proper wearing bland trunks to the sound of even more bland generic stock rock. Wade Barrett; Ted DiBiase, Jr,; Ezekiel Jackson; Davey Boy Smith, Jr,; Drew McIntyre; all wore virtually the same gear. They looked transplanted from a production factory because they were, in effect. Almost literally colourless, they were homogenised in both ring style and aesthetic.

The stars look more like stars now, and that is because the stars plucked from the Independent and worldwide scenes have retained just enough of their own identity to project themselves as stars. Shinsuke Nakamura is a rock star in both his physical charisma and leather pants; Kevin Owens effectively transmits his fighter aura in MMA shorts. Even those mostly developed within the system have since developed. The New Day are impossible to ignore, mirroring their joie de vivre with glorious technicolour. The team with which they stole so many shows, the Usos, look both cool and menacing in their stripped-back new attire. Their brilliance is there to see in black and white.
