Default Wrestling gimmicks based on movie characters?

There was Waylon Mercey based on Max Cady from Cape Fear and Jericho said he based his latest one loosely on a character from No Country For Old Men, have there been any others?

John Cena is based on Christopher Reeve's Superman character.















Randy Orton is based on some boring documentary.

Sting's legendary gimmick in wcw based off of the Crow from the same named movie also his current gimmick based off of a mixture of jim carrey's and heath ledger's potrayal of the joker.

Razor Ramon was a play off of Tony Montana from Scarface, same with Carlito. There are a lot of wrestlers in Japan who unabashedly wrestle with horror movie gimmicks, including Jason the Legend, a Leatherface knockoff, and I think there's even a Freddie knock off. WCW used to have a guy dressed as Beetlejuice, who'd go on to be Batman in the promotion. There's definitely influence in tag teams like the Road Warriors, Demolition, and the Blade Runners from Mad Max. Sting's been synonymous with ripping off the Crow and the Joker, and WWE essentially pulled the character Zeus from No Holds Barred for Tiny Listor to portray against Hogan. Jerry Lynn had a very The Wrestler themed run in ROH a few years ago. The tag team of Kaentai used to lip synch their promos like an old kaiju godzilla movie. Taker sits up like Michael Myers in Halloween. Mankind was definitely inspired by TXCM's Leatherface.
