The Dungeon of Doom. Just the sheer mention of this angle sends shivers down the back of even the most hardened wrestling fan. It was a group consisting of the biggest collection of oddballs this side of The Island of Misfit Toys.
But none of them had the charm of Hermie the Dentist.
A roll call of the Dungeon would reveal Zodiac, The Giant, Kevin Sullivan (who was now The Taskmaster), King Curtis (Sullivan’s “father”, known as The Wizard), The Yeti, and Ron the Evil Leprechaun. Others were brought into the group as the storyline needed. The Wizard would bellow out orders not unlike a barker at the world’s most evil State Fair.
And for some unknown reason, the gimmick just didn’t get over. Gee, I wonder why.
No reason to wonder why it happened – Kevin Sullivan was a backstage power, and needed to keep himself in the limelight.
