A character like Hillbilly Jim is perfect for a sport whose fans are believed to be predominantly "rednecks." A popular wrestler of the '80s, the loveable Hillbilly Jim fits the stereotype well in his bib overalls and horseshoe necklace. Of course, we all know this misconception isn't true. Lots of intelligent, well-rounded individuals love professional wrestling. We should be more concerned about the people wearing bib overalls who don't like professional wrestling.

Most people remember Andre the Giant for his role in The Princess Bride. For wrestling fans he is a major part of WWF history. A magnificent presence on his own, Andre didn’t need a flashy costume to stand out in the ring. While you may not be able to pull off the height, you can replicate his look with a black singlet, though you should cut one strap off if you want to be authentic.September 14, 2013 by Jaime
The high flying, Rey Mysterio may be small in stature but he’s a big presence in the world of wrestling. Bringing the fun of lucha libre back to the ring, the masked wrestler has become a figure who kids and adults want to replicate. Of course wearing a luchador mask doesn’t mean you’ll be able to imitate the moves. That requires practice.

Known as “The Grand Wizard of Wrestling” Ernie Roth was a sight to behold. The manager of several wrestling heels, he often wore clashing patterns and sequined jackets. However, his flamboyant look doesn’t stop there. If you want to be a true version of The Grand Wizard you need a brightly colored turban. You can add a few feathers and jewels to take it one step further. Ernie would approve.

Macho Man Randy Savage wore a variety of colorful costumes during his career as a professional wrestler. From his tassel covered suits and cowboy hats to the simple star covered pink trunks, the raspy voiced entertainer was always a sight to behold. Even if you’re not a fan of wrestling you’re probably guilty of saying “Snap into a Slim Jim” at least once while passing a Slim Jim display. It’s okay, we’ve all done it. Ooooh yeah!May 29, 2013 by Jaime
From feather boas to apparel bearing his own name, Hulk Hogan’s ring attire has varied throughout his career but he has stayed true to the colors red and yellow. No matter which variation of his outfit you choose, unless you’re built like the Hulkster you want to make sure to include a pair of black wraparound sunglasses. Otherwise you could end up looking like a walking McDonald’s advertisement.
