49. Yokozuna

Era: '90s

Leave it to Vince McMahon to take a 600 lb. Samoan, tie his hair back with chop sticks, dress him up in a red and black sumo diaper, and name him Yokozuna which literally translates to "champion sumo wrestler" in Japanese. Paired with the "Devious One," Mr. Fuji as his manager, Yoko embraced the gimmick and the diaper all the way to the WWF world championship on two occasions having classic matches/confrontations along the way with Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Undertaker and yes, even somehow with Lex Luger. -AG
