You are a pro wrestling promoter of a decently sized promotion somewhere in the south back in the early 1990s.

You are a pro wrestling promoter of a decently sized promotion somewhere in the south back in the early 1990s. One faithful day, an ancient malicious spirit visits your office. Thinking it's just a rib from the boys, you anger the spirit and it curses you. He puts Adam Cole on your roster and tells you that you have approximately a year to get him over with the crowd, otherwise he will come and kill you, then torment your bloodline for generations to come. How do you tackle this herculean task, especially in a day and age with no smarks and a predominately right wing audience?

    Make him cut his hair and have him be the manager of a big guy whose promos are too weird to cut it with a mainstream audience. He'll occasionally take bumps and maybe even have a match as a chickenshit manager who's forced into it by a stipulation, but his role would only to be there to make the big guys look bigger.

      He didn't say he had to get over as a wrestler. Give him the Jim Cornette gimmick as a dweeby manager who talks about video games nonstop. That'd get heat in the south in the 90s.

      >Other companies have Cornette, Hart, Heenan, Heyman, etc. aka the best talkers of all time
      >Okay, but our guy is ADAM COLE!
      It's a decent idea on paper, but in reality would not go down well

      Cole can hold his own on the mic, it's his physique and matches that are cringe

    Give him a troony gimmick and say that the company had to give him the womens belt to avoid a lawsuit. After a few months of him calling the fans misogynists and transphobes, bring in an Alyundra Blaze type to take the belt off him before he reveals he was never actually a troony so it doesn't count as a loss. Then have Vader squash him.

    Give him the Mikey Whipwreck gimmick. Have him win a ton of matches against bigger guys that start off as flukes, but then he legitimately gets good at beating hosses.

    Then have an actual small and talented guy with muscle beat the shit out of him, and have him lose his confidence, becoming a jobber again. You can go a bunch of ways from there.

    Have him come out everyday dressed as an metrosexual urbanites, starts every match by either wiping his ass with the Dixie flag or a Dale Earnhardt shirt. Before the faces can beat his ass, his giga Black wrestler who he's managing steps in. He ends each match with "The South lost and the future is black, ADAM COLE BAYBAY"

    I'd have him go full pot belly AIDS midget and have a gimmick that he talks the most shit and thinks he's the biggest most cut total badass with the best body in the history of the world, they he gets squashed I'm every match. If I'm going to die I might as well have a laugh first.

    Adam Cole would be totally accepted if he didn't look like a skinnyfat geek. Jesus christ. He'd look so dimes if he put on some muscle. I'm not even asking for Eddie/Benoit levels here, just something that doesn't make him look like such a pencil neck dork.

    Wrestling fans in the 90s were not right wing. They were blue collar working class normal people. The majority of whom would likely identify as centrists

          To be fair Nirvana's actual fans that went to their gigs and listened to the albums were suburbanites and college kids, most blue collar guys maybe thought smells like teen spirit had a catchy riff but didn't like that they couldn't understand what he was saying.

    What year Adam Cole? If it's 2017 Adam Cole I get him over as a Rey Mysterio kind of guy that comes back against the giant guys.

    If it's 2018 onwards Adam Cole the task is insurmountable.

      Underrated. He should interfere in matches by asking the ref or wrestlers if they want something then he either gets double teamed and loses or fights back with underhanded concession stand tricks.
