David Penzer (1993-2001)

  • Arch-Enemy: Chris Jericho, who attacked him, during a losing streak, every time he announced the winner's name. To be fair Jericho always bought him new suits.
    • Except he'd then rip them off him again.
  • Hammy Herald
  • Non-Action Guy
  • Tacky Tuxedo: Instead of the traditional black, Penzer often wore a vibrantly colorful cummerbund and bowtie with his tuxedo.
