"Wildman"/"Marvelous" Marc Mero 1996-1998

  • Alliterative Name
  • Arch-Enemy: Triple H at first, later Sable.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: He was oddly paranoid after his initial turn and it led to weird moments like when he was supposed to face Salvatore Sincere on the December 8, 1997 Raw. Instead Mero called him a jobber and said that his real name was Tom Brandi. Other than insulting Sincere, what this was supposed to accomplish remains clouded in mystery.
  • Domestic Abuse: Heavily implied in his initial heel turn on Sable in late 1997.
  • Finishing Move: Wild Thing (Shooting Star Press; later renamed "Marvelosity"); TKO (Fireman's Carry Diamond Cutter)
  • I Have the High Ground: The first person to ever do a Shooting Star Press in WWE, debuting it during his match with Goldust at SummerSlam 96.
  • The Resenter: His whole turn seemed to be based on his being angry about Sable getting popular on her own while he was out much of the year with an injury.
  • Romance on the Set: Was married to Sable
  • Tempting Fate: On the November 30, 1998 Raw, he said he would retire if WWF World Light Heavyweight Champion Duane Gill beat him. He had Gill down and was about to go for Marvelosity when Gill's J.O.B. Squad ally The Blue Meanie pushed him off, leading to Gill pinning Mero.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Goldust, dressed as Marilyn Manson, against the Headbangers in early 1998. It fell apart once Sable and Luna Vachon started having their own problems.
  • Wrestling Doesn't Pay: As part of his heel turn, he was repackaged with a boxer gimmick.
