I'm not exactly sure who was the innovator of the mysterious green mist in the world of wrestling. I believe it's a tradition that started in Japan and the first wrestler I remember seeing do it was the Great Kabuki in World Class Championship Wrestling. According to some sources, Kabuki was the first to do it, so I guess my recollection is accurate.
|Muta & Kabuki|
Before Muta's mist debut in WCW, Killer Khan was spraying opponents in WWF rings in 1987. For some reason, a match with Outback Jack sticks out to me with Khan using the mist. He also battled Hulk Hogan for the WWF Championship and while researching this piece, I found the plan was for Khan to spray mist in Miss Elizabeth's eyes to set up a feud with "Macho Man" Randy Savage. An interesting idea, but I like the Honky Tonk Man angle better.
|Tajiri vs. Viscera|
Green- The commonly used mist which is said to obstruct the opponents vision.
Red- Quite often used but is said to Burn the eyes. Used by Gangrel which was known as Blood Mist.
Black- Said to blind the opponent for several weeks.
Blue- Sends the opponent to sleep.
Yellow- Paralyzes the opponent.
Purple- Cause momentarily distraction and memory loss (once used by Roxxi Laveaux).
