There was once a time when a performer's physical appearance only meant so much as it pertained to his status as a professional wrestler. Characters such as Harley Race and Dusty Rhodes were given similar opportunities awarded to the likes of Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Lex Luger based upon their abilities to draw interest and money via their in-ring talent and their skills on the microphone. A wrestler's look would only get him so far if he did not connect with fan bases for whatever reasons, and that made for an industry that was filled with interesting characters different from each other.

That unfortunately is no longer the case in what is the biggest North American professional wrestling organization. World Wrestling Entertainment has, over the years, become keen on featuring what are often referred to as “cookie-cutter” performers who all have similar looks and similar physiques. As hard as it might be for a diehard fan or a wrestling historian to imagine, it is very possible that even “The Nature Boy” would not have gotten a true shot to be a world champion and top babyface/heel in the WWE today all because he didn't have the physique preferred by those who run the company.

This is not to suggest that talentless jacked-up muscle-heads are the only individuals pushed by WWE. Some of the best performers in the company who make large amounts of cash for themselves and for the WWE also happen to be in tremendous physical condition. Those independent contractors do not have to look far for inspiration to hit up the gym on a daily basis. Three top executives, two who remain weekly on-air characters, do well to keep themselves in tip-top shape, and they have been featured on magazine covers and also in workout videos.

Vince McMahon, the Chairman and CEO of WWE, will turn 70 years old later in 2015. Remember that fact when you come upon a recent picture of the executive and former world champion. Some would say that McMahon has an unhealthy obsession with his physical appearance and that it is unnatural for a man of his age to be so incredibly ripped. Those people may have valid points, but the man's dedication to his look has to be admired. There truly will never be another Mr. McMahon, and his on-air character is still missed by fans who could not get enough WWE programming during the “Attitude Era.”
