For the last three weeks I've posted (Chad too) blogs with a Halloween theme. I think most of the have had some sort of scary or creepy theme to them. I'm going to switch gears for a bit and talk about some of the silly costumes worn in the wrestling business. There are plenty to chose from, so this should be interesting.
I'm beginning this series with Mantaur. For those who may not remember, he was a WWF superstar in 1995. Remember, this was a down time for the company. Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage had left and in my opinion the WWF was still looking for ways to fill the void. This was also the era of TL Hopper, Freddie Joe Floyd, and Duke the Dumpster Droese.

Mantaur never really achieved any big success in the ring, even though Jim Cornette managed the man-beast. He lost to Razor Ramon one time by disqualification during an Intercontinenal title match. Mantaur went on to job to Bob Holly in a qualifying match for the King of the Ring tournament in 1995.
