"Cause I love it loud
I wanna hear it loud
Right between the eyes
Cause I love it loud
I wanna hear it loud
Don't want no compromise
KISS, "I Love It Loud"

"Stitch me up doc, I got a match tonight!"

Steve Williams (1960-2009) was an American amateur and Professional Wrestler from Lakewood, CO best known for his work in Mid-South, WCW and, especially, for All Japan Pro Wrestling from the 1980s into the 21st Century. He debuted in 1982 for Mid-South, being billed from Norman, OK, and teamed with Ted DiBiase against Eddie Gilbert and the Nightmare (Randy Culley, aka Moondog Rex/the first Demolition Smash). Williams won the renamed UWF's World Heavyweight Title. He was included when National Wrestling Alliance promoter Jim Crockett bought out the UWF in 1987. He turned Heel and joined Kevin Sullivan's Jerk Jock Power Stable the Varsity Club in late 1988. After the group disbanded, he went over to Japan, where he would achieve his greatest success. He would hold the All Japan Triple Crown Heavyweight Title once and the All Japan World Tag Team Title 8 times, 5x with Terry Gordy, 1 w/Vader, 1x with Gary Albright and 1x w/Johnny Ace (John Laurinaitis). In America, he and Gordy would hold the WCW World Tag Team Titles in 1992. He also competed for ECW. He died of esophageal cancer in 2009. He was inducted into the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame in 2011.
