15Booker T / The Rock

Booker T is a certified WWE Hall Of Famer and a legend in his own right. But back when the "Monday Night Wars" were rife and WWE and WCW were at each other’s throats, Booker T was an obvious rip-off and poor man’s version of

Although he came up the ranks as his own independent entity and tried to carve an original image for himself, Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff, for whatever reason, felt it would be better to turn him into a blatant copycat of The Rock. Not only did Booker T sport the same haircut and goofy sideburns (which were "in" at the time, to be fair), he also tried to replicate The Rock’s fashion sense by dressing in brightly colored “tropical island” shirts and slacks. And as if all that wasn’t embarrassing enough, Booker T started delivering “The Bookend” as his finisher… which was, in every way and form, the Rock Bottom.

Booker has come a long way since that phase in his career, and is now one of the few WCW main-eventers to have survived the WWE onslaught of talent. Not only did he main-event WrestleMania and add numerous top-tier feuds to his career, he also got comfortable doing live commentary and supports the wrestling community from behind the scenes via various initiatives. Now can you dig that…. SUCKAAAA!!!!?
