Trivia / Fred Ottman

Go To

  • Acting for Two: In his WCW run with Ottman playing The Shockmaster and The Super Shockmaster.
  • Old Shame: Subverted as Ottman was ashamed for a while about the turn of events but eventually finds humor in the situation and embraces it.
  • Star-Derailing Role: Although he would continue wrestling, his stint as the Shockmaster sadly hurt his career in the long term.
  • What Could Have Been: During his run as Tugboat, there were plans for him to take on the Iraqi sympathizer role and would be christened Sheik Tugboat and would have main evented with Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania VII. But that would be thrown out and Sgt. Slaughter would take on the role instead.

Misc. trivia

  • His run as Tugboat and, naturally, the Shockmaster's entrance were inducted into WrestleCrap.
