Many would argue that a wrestler's attire is the single most important part of a character's make-up and they'd probably have a point.
Through their in-ring or entrance gear, a performer can pay homage to their heroes, send out a vital message or even just stretch their creative muscles a little bit. In fact, some of these variations can become so popular that a star has no choice but to integrate them into their everyday attire - see Brock Lesnar's Suplex City shirts and early John Cena's many jersey variations over the years.
However, not every costume choice is fortunate enough to live forever and on some occasions a distinctly different aesthetic direction can be retired on the very same night it was debuted.
Whether it was due to these outfits not exactly landing with the big boss at the top of Titan Tower, the gear acting as a one-off tribute to a place/idea or even an injury forcing a rethink of your entire presentation, these fleeting combinations were all quickly put to bed after popping up for the first and only time on WWE television.
