Best of Zeb Colter & The Real Americans

The Zeb Colter character portrayed by Dirty Dutch Mantell has had a great year plus run alongside The Real Americans tag team. Zeb’s ability to push the envelope with controversial topics straight off of the evening news created a love him or hate him gimmick that played off of Tea Party stereotypes.

Zeb’s ability to amplify the ridiculousness of Conservative and Libertarian talk radio hosts creates an interesting onscreen character that is meant to be derided and hated as a heel but yet somehow also mirrors the viewpoints of many people who consider themselves fans of wrestling.

As an atheist liberal with no Republican leanings whatsoever, I bought into the heel dynamic being played by Colter. But among my friends with libertarian tendencies, I would see them openly root for Zeb and his Real American team. The character is brilliant in it’s multiplicity and ability to be different to different people.

This playlist covers Zeb Colter’s initial return to WWE alongside Jack Swagger and continues through Wrestlemania XXX and the breakup of the Cesaro / Swagger incarnation of The Real Americans. Many of these matches are preceded by vignettes and remarks from Zeb Colter.
