PAPA SHANGO

Poor Charles Wright. Such a big dude with a good look who was (at the very least) passable in the ring. Yet he was saddled with such awful gimmicks that the closest he came to fame and fortune was by portraying a pimp. But first things first. Papa Shango was a voodoo king who, uh, used voodoo against his opponents. He was big and scary and if the gimmick didn't require people to basically turn off their brain while watching, well, I dunno. He probably still couldn't have made it work. The gimmick didn't work, they brought him back as an ultimate fighter, a black militant and finally as a pimp. In a case of life imitating art, he now runs a strip club in Vegas. So I guess there's a happy ending after all. So here, watch some of Papa Shango's finest moments. Peace.
