  • The man that declared himself "The Franchise" and was the first Extreme Champion and delivered a great promo. What can I say?

    What can you cay about a man that has been in every major promotion in the US? By major I mean, the big 3, ECW, the then WWF, and WCW.

    He literally revolutionized the sport. He made being a wrestler at that time in the mid-90's seem like a working class hero.

    He wasn't a cartoon character or a jacked up monster.

    He was just a regular Joe from Pittsburgh.

    He held titles, made them mean something and practically invented "shooting" in promos and/or breaking kayfabe.

    This man made ECW in it's infancy spectacular.

    He never gets enough credit.

    He could be a brawler, mat based wrestler and extreme when need be. I for one am proud to be a fan.moreless
