The Godfather

We actually liked Papa Shango when he debuted and as corny as the gimmick was, we know we are not the only ones who had a soft spot for the voodoo man.  Charles Wright would later be repackaged multiple times before he struck gold as the “Godfather”, a lovable pimp.  This character allowed Wright to use charisma that was muted in other personas and was a great fit for the attitude era.  If only he was given a chance to be more of himself earlier his career.
