Sidney Raymond Eudy (born December 16, 1960) is a retired American Professional Wrestler from West Memphis, AR best known for his work in WCW as Sid Vicious and in WWE as Sycho Sid. He debuted in 1987 and competed in the Continental circuit in Alabama and Tennessee, primarily as Lord Humongous, before adopting the Sid Vicious name. He arrived in WCW in 1989 and was teamed with Dan Spivey as the Skyscrapers. They feuded with The Road Warriors and the Steiner Brothers until Clash of the Champions IX. That night, Scott Steiner screwed up a fallaway slam, causing Sid to suffer a punctured lung and a broken rib.note  When Sid came back in May, he was introduced as the newest member of the Four Horsemen, with Ric Flair, Arn Anderson and Barry Windham. Sid stayed with the Horsemen until El Gigante defeated him in a Stretcher Match at WCW SuperBrawl on May 19th, 1991, sending him off to WWE. He debuted in WWE as a Face, renamed Sid Justice. This lasted until Flair, who had arrived shortly after Sid, eliminated him, with Hulk Hogan's assistance, from the 1992 Royal Rumble. Sid turned heel and sided with manager Dr. Harvey Wippleman before leaving.


Sid returned to WCW at WCW Slamboree 1993 as manager Col. Robert Parker's revenge for Van Hammer refusing to join his stable. Sid and Parker joined forces with Big Van Vader and manager Harley Race, creating the Masters of the Powerbombs team for a feud with Sting and the British Bulldog. Sid was forced out in October following a hotel room fight in England with Arn Anderson where both guys were stabbing each other with scissors.

Sid went off to the USWA in Memphis before coming back to WWE in 1995. He was originally Shawn Michaels' bodyguard (see Bodyguard Betrayal below) before turning on him. Sid replaced the face-turned Bam Bam Bigelow in Ted DiBiase's Million Dollar Corporation. Sid was turned face in July 1996, replacing the Ultimate Warrior as Shawn and Ahmed Johnson's partner for the six-man main event against Camp Cornette (Owen Hart, Bulldog, Vader) at in Your House 9: International Incident. He would go on to defeat Shawn for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Survivor Series 96 and would win it a second time, this time from Bret Hart, before leaving.


Sid went off to Memphis but otherwise dropped off the radar until ECW Guilty As Charged 99, January 10, 1999. In a recycling of the angle from Slamboree 1993, Judge Jeff Jones brought out Sid to destroy John Kronus. Sid stuck around until the summer, when he shocked everybody by returning, after a 5 1/2-year absence, to WCW, as an ally of Randy Savage in his feud with Kevin Nash. Sid stuck around into the Spring, having won the WCW United States Heavyweight Title once and the WCW World Heavyweight Title twice, until he was taken off of TV for the bulk of the year. He returned in December to challenge Scott Steiner for the title at Starrcade, which he lost. At Sin in January, he suffered his infamous broken leg, essentially ending his career.

He would later resurface in the independents and even made a return to WWE. As part of Heath Slater's epic Humiliation Conga leading up to Raw's 1000th Episode, Sid squashed him on the 996th episode, June 25, 2012.
