Looking back at WWE within the early 1990s, one of the more memorable parts of this era was how gimmick-oriented its characters were. After all, very few of the WWE storylines at the time were rooted in reality. Hence, a voodoo-practitioner (Papa Shango) putting hexes on a tribe-less warrior (The Ultimate Warrior).
Yet a fair share of the WWE roster at the time portrayed characters who seemed to have professions which they brought to the ring. It often raised the question if these characters were moonlighting as wrestlers, or if they were transitioning into full-time careers in the ring. For example, if Paul Bearer -- as portrayed by Percy Pringle, who actually had worked within the funeral industry -- was portraying a pallbearer or some sort of funeral service director, why was he traveling around the world with a reanimated corpse instead of working at a chapel, cemetery or funeral parlor? In turn, a lot of these career-oriented characters did not accurately represent what someone normally did as part of that job.
Knowing what we know about Vince McMahon and his unpredictable creative process, it also begs the question as to whether or not these were intentional oversights for entertainment's sake, or more so someone who has been out of "the real world" for so long that he just simply didn't know. Whichever way you choose to look at it, expect a whole lot of entertainment when digging into these and other early 1990s Superstars episodes on the WWE Network.
