The description of Macho Man's gear being made by a group of third grade girls on a sugar high was hilarious.

I have mixed feelings about Hogan. I don’t know that his attire was special so much as simply recognizable. Within wrestling, it’s certainly iconic. As well, many people who don’t follow the show also identify the yellow & red as “Hulkamania.” But, I never thought it was anything spectacular.

And yes, Flair BELONGS on the list. At the very least, there’s no way Rey Mysterio should beat him out of a spot.

Rude is a great choice, as are the LOD.

As for Shawn, I liked his trunks with the O’Neal motocross boots, but the chaps and vests made him look like he belonged in a gay biker bar. In my mind, the gear conjured up the image of Eugene Levy in Armed and Dangerous.

no shawn or flair kind of ruins the list.

this man is missing also:

as is superstar billy graham.

savage, warrior, rude and LOD were all deserving, but demolition might have been included too.

Supposedly, Flair paid $10K+ for some of his robes. Savage wore similar robes earlier in his career.
Those garments were made of several different heavy, quality fabrics and loaded with sequins that had to be individually hand-sewn.

Jesse & Superstar Graham certainly get the nod for wildest/weirdest gear. Remember that Jesse essentially copied Graham's act, later followed Steiner (somewhat) & Hogan.

The old man also wore some interesting 90's get-ups:

YES!!!

I forget where, but I just saw Ico-Pro advertised somewhere. I think it was one of my online supplement stores.
I don't know anything about the current line, but do you remember the original?
They sold stuff like "Muscle Mist," etc. They got Razor and Bret to pimp the line with TV commercials & magazine ads. And, as mentioned above, the old man would wear the baggy Zubaz-type gear on Prime Time.

On a side note, Curt Hennig gave his kid some Ico-Pro products while training for football. The kid couldn't play because he got the shits and couldn't practice for two weeks! Grin
