  • Arch-Enemy: Big Bossman
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Cassandra Truth: His claims that Bossman was an evil, abusive prick based on how he treated him in his time behind bars fell completely on deaf ears at the time despite Bossman saying nothing to deny them. Years later, Bossman took part in the Attitude Era as Vince McMahon's corrupt SWAT enforcer and pretty much proved he was capable of everything Nailz claimed.
  • Finishing Move: Sleeper.
  • Institutional Apparel

  • Badass Beard: Eh, it's more of a goatee, but it still counts.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Commuting on a Bus: After the Hart Foundation split in 1991, he faded into the background until he left in March 1992. He returned at King of the Ring in June 1994 and was gone by the end of the year. He made one appearance under his own name in 1996 before his short-lived repackaging as "Who." He returned properly in 1997 for the Hart Foundation reunion and left in December. Returned in 2007 for the Raw 15th Anniversary Battle Royal.
  • Evil Laugh
  • Genius Bruiser
  • It Runs in the Family
  • The Jannetty: To Bret Hart.
  • Real Men Wear Pink
  • Red Baron: "The Anvil"
  • Tag Team: With Bret Hart as the Hart Foundation.
    • The New Foundation, with Owen in late 1991 to early 1992.
