At last Monday’s Impact tapings they filmed some stuff on Sonjay Dutt getting a makeover which should be airing next week. At first, Nash tries to transform Sonjay into Oz, Nash’s old gimmick in WCW. Nash even gave him his old costume, but the joke is that the costume is made for a 6-10, 300 pound plus man, so it’s too big for Sonjay. They then scratch that gimmick off the list. He ends up going with a “Scarface” gimmick, so basically he’ll be doing some Razor Ramon mannerisms.

Jay Lethal added more to his “Macho Man” gimmick at last Monday’s iMPACT! tapings. His new name is “Black Machismo”. He also wore a Macho Man-style robe and his new finisher is the elbow off the top rope. He also had his hair straightened.

Much of Eric Young’s character as far as insecurity aspects are concerned is based on the real-life Chris Park, the man behind Abyss.
