In the next few decades pro westling developed into dramas which included stereotypical "characters": good guys, Indians, Arabs, Germans, Japanese, Russians or Mexicans, hot-tempered Irish guys, and of course, evil bad guys.

Many "gimmicks" were tried too.  Tag-teams, ladies, midgets, steel cage matches, all kinds of acts were first seen at this time.

In the 1940s, a pro wrestler named "Gorgeous George" became very famous as a villain fans "loved to hate."  He  had bleached blonde hair, a beautiful costume, and snooty mannerisms.  In his matches, he always cheated, and the angry fans always hoped to see him lose, but he seldom did.
