WWE's 25 most absurd Superstars

#3 Mantaur

Mantaur’s back-story drew heavily from the Greek myth of the Minotaur — a half-man, half-bull creature that lived in the center of a labyrinth on the island of Crete. If you think that’s a dubious basis for a WWE Superstar, you’re right. Mantaur’s allusions to the Roman poet Ovid were probably lost on the WWE fans who saw him as just a burly guy in a furry helmet that looked like the hat Fred Flintstone wore to his Water Buffalo meetings. The oversized bull head was so unwieldy that he routinely knocked it off while attempting to get in the ring. Mantaur’s klutzy entrances have led people to regard him as an oaf, which wasn’t the case — the 400-pounder could move. Still, he’ll forever be remembered as WWE’s answer to The Shockmaster.
