In 1995, the WWE had the idea of putting a giant bull’s head on Mike Hallick and calling him Mantaur. Among his cattle mannerisms, he would headbutt opponents, as well as moo at them. People were paid to come up with that. A moo-ing wrestler.

he sucked. And they had him titled as " worlds strongest man"A complete lie. He was never in any of the worlds strongest man events. Guarantee Mariusz Pudzianowski would easily beat him in any event. That includes. The standard bench, squat and dead lift. He just sucked. In fact he was not as strong as he was billed at. He trouble many times even slamming the big show and undertaker. Good bye fat ass.
You're an idiot... He was two times an Olympian in 1992 and 1996 and a Silver, Gold and Bronze Medalist at the Pan American Games in 1995. As a powerlifter, he was drug-free World Champion (1995) and a two-time U.S. National Champion (1995 and 1997) as well as an all-time raw world record holder in the squat and deadlift. Currently, he still holds the WDFPF world records in the squat, deadlift and total and the USAPL American record in the deadlift since 1995. He is credited for the biggest raw squat and raw powerlifting total ever performed by a drug tested athlete, regardless of weight class, as well as the greatest raw deadlift by an American citizen. In weightlifting, Henry was a three-time U.S. National Weightlifting Champion (1993, 1994, 1996), an American Open winner (1992), a two-time U.S. Olympic Festival Champion (1993 and 1994) and a NACAC champion (1996). He holds all three Senior US American weightlifting records of 1993-1997. In 2002 he won the first annual Arnold Strongman Classic. ... tell me how he's not the world's strongest man again??? ... and by the way, what exactly do you the the Arnold Strongman Classic is anyway?? It's the frickin "Super Bowl" of strong man competitions. It's only the most prestigeous of strongman competitions. Flex magazine named him the second strongest man that EVER lived. Look up his records idiot. and for the record, you're boy Pudzianowski owns a total of 0 power lifting records. Let's see him break ONE of Henry's records and then talk to me slappy.
The eugene gimmick was Nick's idea... as a matter of fact he still does the gimmick in the indies
I got excited for a second when I saw the Repo Man with the rope and trench coat. I thought he might be like the Night Surgeon, coming after other wrestler's organs or something cool.But no, a kleptomaniac with a swiper mask, that's just... great.. yeah.
NEVERMIND>>>Fellow wrestler Mick Foley recounts in his 2001 book Foley Is Good: And the Real World Is Faker than Wrestling, that he was at the hospital with D'Lo Brown after the match. Brown was extremely upset at what had happened. Foley tells how Drozdov (on a stretcher) told Brown not to blame himself and that it was an accident.
Didn't "Sexual Chocolate" hurt "Draz"???
Papa Shango is one of the most iconic wwf wrestlers, I loved Papa Shango.
If anything, Eugene made Dinsmore famous, who would recognize him if he wasn't Eugene?
I loved Papa Shango
Glacier and all of those characters were inspired by both Mortal Kombat and Power Rangers which were extremely popular at the time. The original idea was to make more of a Saturday morning wrestling kids show that never happened. All of the characters actually appeared before the NWO, it was the NWO that killed the momentum.
I worked with Mike Shaw in Michigan's Upper Peninsula long after he left the WWF. The Booger character may have been ill-conceived, but you'd be hard-pressed to meet a better father, friend, and all-around guy. He was instrumental in bringing wrestling to the U.P., and his untimely death devastated the many, many people who cared about him. R.I.P., Mike.
