Did You Know?


Because he pretty much ate himself out of "main event" status, no major wrestling organization wanted him. Desperate, he went to the WWF to find work, and was willing to do just about anything. About the same time, Vince McMahon was looking for someone to be a "gay" wrestler. Adonis took him up on that offer, and that pretty much finished off his wrestling career. For the record, he was not gay. See more »
