    - Ricky Morton and Too Cold Scorpio
    Simple reasoning - how many teeny boppers would have died from the giant cobra Too Cold was packing

    - Mr. Perfect and Ted Dibiase(MDM gimmick)
    I could see BOTH guys doing very well with the others gimmick. Add super wealth to Perfect's cocky heel gimmick ass? Yes please

    I think this is a good one - rumor and innuendo has always said that Curt Hennig got the Mr. Perfect gimmick over Terry Taylor (who then got stuck as the Red Rooster). Would TT do just as well? Would Curt actually get the RR over?

    I've heard the same, and an obscure rumor that Bockwinkel was almost Perfect or Million Dollar Man. At the time, I think Nick's age would have been a detriment, but damn woulda loved to see he and Heenan together in WWF

    1996 wearing a ball cap while cutting a promo, and no-selling Trips at Main = the ultimate Ultimate.

    JBL and Magnum TA

    - Mostly because I would love to see JBL in his role as a car crash victim and never have to see him on my TV again

    - Also, TA was such a huge missed opportunity

    Too bad Bockwinkel couldn't have wrestled another 10 plus years and had Val Venis' gimmick.
