Mini Bio (1)

One of the most versatile professional wrestlers of all time, Norman Smiley has wrestled in England, Mexico, Japan, and in the U.S., becoming very proficient in each wrestling style. He is most known for his stay in WCW from 1997 to 2001. He spent the first couple of years there as a low-card wrestler who mainly stayed unnoticed. He finally got a push to mid-card wrestler in the fall of 1998. His first notable feud was with Chavo Guerrero Jr. Norman stole Chavo's stick horse "Pepe" and threw it into a wood chipper. He began carrying the remains around in an urn. By the end of 1999, Norman had made his move to the hardcore ranks of WCW, becoming probably it's most entertaining champion of all time, regularly gaining undeserved wins with the help of outside interference. He gained a reputation as a sissy, as he would regularly, to the delight of his many adoring fans, scream like a girl when being attacked or chased by his opponents. His patented dancing move was the Big Wiggle, which he performed in the middle of his matches, always getting a tremendous cheer. When WCW was bought by the WWF in 2001, he stayed out of the spotlight for a year. He turned up in Jeff Jarrett's new NWA-TNA on their debut show in the summer of 2002, wrestling in their Gauntlet for the Gold battle royal to determine the new NWA Champion. He has wrestled several more times for that promotion, and he even wrestled in a few "dark" matches for the WWE.
