It Came From YouTube: The Genesis Of Max Moon

14 Submitted by on Sat, 10 January 2015, 17:26

Some pretty interesting documents showing hoe WWE developed the Max Moon character (including when Konnan was going to be the one playing him!).

…including some really interesting potential names for the gimmick, like MOE LECKULOR!

Kind of sad they put this much time, effort, and money into a gimmick that fizzled out so fast.

(Thanks to Eddie Famous who posted this on The W message board).

    Max Moon ribbed for our pleasure. That was a pretty fascinating piece on how much work is given to create a character. Hopefully we can see the Mason the Mutilator and Chilly McFreeze blueprints at some point.

    In Japan or Lucha-Libre, this would’ve been sensational. In WWF… even with better luck keeping Konnan to work under the mask, it would’ve bombed.

    Ah…Max Moon. The WWF discount version of classic NES hero Mega Man.

    They were gonna call him Quagmyre. Giggity

    Didnt he debut under the name “Komet Kid”? I could have sworn he did.

    I need to get a “showing hoe” for my garden.

    Louis Spicolli is the background? Any ideas? I know he was in Mexico at this time, but I don’t remember him being the fed during this time.
