|Konnan as Max Moon|

Pulling another silly costume from the vault for today's post. Max Moon. I learned a few things about the character doing a little research. I think I knew that Konnan originally donned this goofy costume, but somewhere along the way I had forgotten that fact. He had a contract dispute with the WWE back in 1992, and because the costume fit, Paul Diamond got the gimmick.
I was in college during this time period, so I didn't get to watch wrestling as much as I wanted to. I lived in the dorms and back then there weren't a whole lot of fans around me. I kept up with things through magazines, but I did catch Superstars and Raw from time to time. I saw Max Moon wrestle Shawn Michaels on the first Raw. That was the Paul Diamond version of the character from the future.
I wonder if they still have that costume. Maybe it will be a part of the Wrestlemania Axxess exhibit, I'd like to see it up close after reading all these new details about it.
