** Another one worthy of mention is put rubber bands over a couple of tube socks and shoved them down the front of his pants. GorillaMonsoon, who was notoriously visually impaired, didn't realize it, so Curt came out and wrestled a job match, with what appeared to be a huge boner. Needless to say, VinceMcMahon was not happy about this and went to yell at Monsoon for allowing Curt to go out there like that. Curt promptly received a chewing out when he got backstage from an irritated Monsoon.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Hennig really was an accomplished athlete and Mr. Perfect was a caricature of his real personality.
** The skills he shows in his vignettes are all real, but Curt needed to not know the camera was running in order to pull them off.

* SignatureMove: The PerfectPlex, naturally. Also, when his opponent was sitting up in the ring, usually in a daze, Perfect would run up from behind, somersault over the other guy while grabbing and yanking his head, causing a whiplash.
