Trivia / Konnan

Go To

  • Old Shame: Averted with his early-90s rap career in Mexico. Introduced worldwide through WrestleCrap and his own MLW podcast, when "Konnan's Mango Suit" is brought up, he's quick to point out that it was during the peak of his career, albeit outdated today.
  • Real Song Theme Tune
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Konnan never really rose above the mid card in WWF. He is, however, credited for teaching a young Bret Hart how to apply the new Finishing Move suggested for him by a producer at the time. This hold became known as the Sharpshooter, which was not only iconic as the finisher for Bret (as well as relatives and associates) through the rest of his career, but also extremely important in retrospect to two landmark WWE moments that set up its critical and commercial peak in the Attitude Era - "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's face turn and the Montreal Screwjob.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Won one house show match and two dark matches for WWE in 1992 under the names the Latin Fury and Relampago, but left when he decided he didn't want the Max Moon gimmick. The gimmick ended up on Paul Diamond, and flopped.
    • He nearly came to the WWF in 2000 with the Radicalz, however, when called and talked to WWF executive Bruce "Brother Love" Prichard he referred to himself as K-Dogg, and Prichard didn't know he went by that name and just thought he was some random new talent and asked him to send a tape.


Misc. Trivia

  • He was inducted into WrestleCrap as part of the induction of the Dungeon of Doom as a group.
