Wrestlers and Fanny Packs . . . It Doesn't Get More American Than This!

While paging through my SummerSlam 1990 Program I noticed this ad for an "Ultimate Warrior" Fanny Pack!
That ad got me thinking . . . what's the deal with Wrestlers and Fanny Packs? From the Wrestlers of the 80s to even some of today's stars, there are so many pics floating around the internet with them wearing these ridiculous looking things! Was it fashion statement or just a place to hide their steroids? I think Bobby "The Brain" Heenan said it best in his book, when he spotted one of the Wrestlers wearing one, he'd pull the guy aside and ask, "Do you want to get laid tonight?" The guy would invariably answer in the affirmative, and Bobby would say, "Take that off and stuff it down the front of your pants!"
Any way here's a gallery of Wrestlers Wearing Fanny Packs, along with a Special "Who Wore It Better" Contest at the End of the Post!
