Those of you who watch WWE Monday Night Raw have no doubt noticed the big beard sported by Daniel Bryan these days. There’s something about that crazy facial hair that adds to Bryan’s character.
Lots of guys have used beards to boost their gimmick. I’m sure many of you will immediately think of 1980s WWF mainstay Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, who had a stiff, reddish goatee that he stroked while cackling during his interviews. It was an unforgettable image, and it helped Neidhart.
I think Bryan is in the elite league, along with Neidhart and others, when it comes to bad-ass beards. The great Camel Clutch Blog was nice enough to run a post I wrote about great beards in wrestling, and I hope you’ll check it out and offer your thoughts either here or on the Camel Clutch site.
