I remember him. There have been so many wrestlers throughout the years that it can be difficult to remember all of them. All kinds of stars come and go with little to no impact, but there are some that stand out for one reason or another. That is the case with a bunch of stars from WWE’s Attitude Era and another one was back this week, albeit for a completely different company.

Former WWE star Gangrel made a surprise appearance this week on AEW Rampage, accompanying the Young Bucks to the ring for their match. This was part of a Young Bucks parody of the Hardys, who Gangrel briefly managed in WWE as the New Brood. Following the match, the Bucks attacked Gangrel but the Hardys ran in for the save. There is nothing to suggest that this is anything more than a one off appearance.

This was hilarious. Check out the surprise cameo:

Opinion: This is the kind of a cameo that works very well, as a wrestler like Gangrel does have enough of a connection to the Hardys that it made sense while also not being something that was probably expected. AEW does a good job of bringing people like this in and I could go for seeing something like it again. There are a lot of legends out there like Gangrel so if something fits, bring them in.

What did you think of the cameo? Who else should make a surprise AEW appearance? Let us know in the comments below.
