Trivia / "Dr. Death" Steve Williams

Go To

  • Fan Nickname: "Doc"
  • Real Song Theme Tune: KISS's "I Love It Loud," which he used in All Japan, ECW and MLW in 2003.
  • What Could Have Been: He was brought to the WWE in 1998 to be a challenger for then-champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. Austin was looking forward to the match having never really worked with Doc before. Then Vince Russo thought of the ill-fated Brawl For All which centered on legitimate fights. He entered the competition and was expected to win it due to his reputation as one of the toughest men in the wrestling business. However, after beating Pierre Carl Ouellet in the first round, he faced Bart Gunn in the semifinals and suffered a torn hamstring. Gunn then knocked out Williams, who missed several months following the injury. The loss killed any push he might have been given before it got started, and Doc left the company shortly thereafter.

How well does it match the trope?
