View Full Version : The Second Golden Age Of Beards In Wrestling

July 25th, 2013, 8:08 AM
Now is truly a momentous time for full on beards in wrestling. Daniel Bryan is of course leading the way with a specimen that we've seen grow and grow since he won the WHC in late 2011, but he's not alone by any stretch of the imagination. The attitude era was characterised by clean shaven stars like Triple H, Kurt Angle and The Rock, or at best a bit of a goatee (Steve Austin, Undertaker) but very few beards to speak of (Steve Blackman was a worthy exception to this rule).

In this thread, we should celebrate the many awesome and fierce beards currently being sported by stars such as Bryan, Damien Sandow, Bray Wyatt, Curtis Axel, Sheamus, Kassius Ohno, and several ohers.

Please tell us about your favourite beard in wrestling, past or present.

When I was younger I always promised myself I would grow a Hogan NWO two-tone beard.

I still dream.

I am making an attempt at some Punk esque chops this week since I am off work. They're only a couple of weeks worth of growth, but disastrously the wife likes them. I'm going to have to think about what to do with them and brace myself for the wonderful ribbing I would get on my return to work.

Also please don't forget an honourable mention of Cody Rhode's lovestache.

Sandow & Mark Henry have some wonderfully trim beards. Curtis Axel has been growing in a pretty bitching beard too. Can we give some major props to the Wyatt family for all having magnificent beards?

Best facial hair in wrestling has to go to Austin Aries, though. It's just awesome.

return to work just like Punk in Chicago. Show up in a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu hoodie, have a fat friend hold out his hand so you can check out his wrist, and then shout "IT'S CLOCK-IN TIME!"

I will be Paul Heyman for you if you need me to, Rog.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are birds nesting in Luke Harpers beard. It's a thing of beauty

My favorite beards or D brys, Henrys, and Sandows. I also dig Punks chops and Codys mustache. I used to grow my chops out like Punks about 5 years ago..might try it out again.

Punk's chops are hideous. He looked a lot better before.

Bryan's beard is so magnificent, I fear it may fail a Wellness Program test INDEPENDENTLY of its owner.

I feel we should all pay our respect to Edge who I'm sure started this whole beards explosion with the great beard he grew around the time he and Vickie were running smackdown.

Pretty crazy that a beard thread made it to 11 posts without any mention of this...

The lack of respect for Mike Knox is this thread is disheartening. He's the true bearded beast and everyone should recognize this true trailblazer.

As Ringo's pic just now loads DAMN IT
