10 Worst Musical WWE Gimmicks

Rockabilly... dear lord.

There should be no surprise that music plays a huge part in professional wrestling. From the minute a wrestler's theme hits it sets a tone and gets the crowd excited before anyone even comes out of the curtain. So it's only natural that music can often play a bigger part in a Superstar's act often becoming the gimmick itself. A musical gimmick isn't just strutting to the ring or getting pumped up on a rock song but one that uses music to define the character, such as rapping to the ring and incorporating dance steps during moves. Some musical gimmicks can be used in a heel fashion, like Jillian Hall's obnoxious singing or Jeff Jarrett as an arrogant moonlighting country music star. Most of the time, though, a musical gimmick carries a fan favorite comedic element to it, like Too Cool and Rikishi's dancing shenanigans. Recently, WWE has had an influx of these types of gimmicks. From Fandango and Summer Rae to Adam Rose's dancing entourage there has been a variety of dancing and singing gimmicks, some great and others atrociously bad. In fact, over the years there have been more than a few terrible musical gimmicks that just didn't work out for a variety of reasons. Whether the wrestler isn't comfortable playing the part or the comedy element on paper doesn't translate in execution there are many examples of musical gimmicks that just didn't work.
