Slobberknocker: Gobbledy Gooker

Is it a dinosaur? Is it a rabbit? Balloons? Is it the Playmate of the Month?

Leading up to the 1990 Survivor Series, a giant egg was frequently seen on WWF TV with the promise of a big surprise reveal at the event. Mean Gene was pretty excited about it but when the Gobbledy Gooker popped out and started dancing in the ring, the fans weren’t much pleased. Despite Gorilla Monsoon and Roddy Piper’s best efforts to sell the hell out of the gimmick, the Gooker (played by Eddie Guerrero’s brother Hector) wasn’t seen again for more than 10 years.
