Chris Adams 1997-1999


Bam Bam Bigelow (Scott Charles Bigelow) 1988, 1990, 1998-2001

Blitzkrieg (Jay Ross, 1999)
  • Beyond the Impossible: In one of his first matches on Nitro, Bobby Heenan (who, remember, was a heel commentator) said with amazement "I wouldn't have thought it was possible, but this guy's even faster than Rey Misterio, Jr.!"
  • Cool Mask: See the image to the right.
  • I Have the High Ground: His finisher was a stardust press (corkscrew 450 splash).
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Prior to his proper TV debut, WCW had taped what they called a "Festival de Lucha" that would have aired on Telemundo as WCW's answer to WWE's Super Astros show. The event never aired. Blitzkrieg was in two six-man tag matches and won them both.
    • In his first WCW appearance, Blitzkrieg teamed with fellow SoCal wrestler Super Dragon. In an interview he gave years later, Super Dragon described how when they got back to the locker room, Psicosis and Juventud Guerrera, both highly talented and respected workers, approached Blitzkrieg and started marking out over how awesome he was. Now that's an impressive debut.
  • Parts Unknown: "The Cosmos"
