!!! !! "Mad Dog Tropes":


* BadassLonghair: Despite being bald on top. Buzz grew his hair sort of long in the back, but not long enough to tie into a proper ponytail, so in the back it was mostly shaggy with a little bit of it tied into a tail. As ugly as it sounds, Buzz Sawyer made the work look for him.


* AxCrazy
* BaldOfEvil

to:

* AxCrazy
AxCrazy: Known for being a loose cannon in the ring who was prone to snapping, and who might randomly decide he'd rather hurt his opponent than win the match.
