Big E Langston looks nothing like Ezekiel Jackson and Mark Henry

He does look like Bobby Lashley, though.

The same way Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, and Ryback are compared to each other, a guy like Big E Langston is going to be compared to Mark Henry, Ezekiel Jackson, etc. It has more to do with body type and style than race. Someone like Ryback is not going to be compared to Owen Hart any more than Big E Langston is going to be compared to Koko B Ware

I honestly don't know. Sadly there are still racist people in the world :\ but at the same time its not out of racism some black wrestlers/people do look similar to others though.

why does WWE copy and reuse gimmicks?































why does WWE take a well known gimmick from one wrestler and give it to somebody else?































why the hell is Ryback using a Samoan Drop as a finish when it SHOULD BE the trademark move for the Uso brothers.....THEY ARE SAMOAN damn it!

It's a natural normal human thing where we take things that are similar in some way or another and speculate which is better. Sometimes as mental exercises but mostly as popularity contests (to see who and how many other people agree with our own choices).































Who's the best black wrestler of all-time?















Who's the best high-flyer of all-time?















Who's the best "big man" of all-time?















Which is better, WWE, WCW, TNA, ECW?































etc etc etc
