WWE News: The Kliq Claims Undertaker Almost Joined WCW, Rip Chris Jericho, Give Opinion On Sting
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
The Kliq, one of professional wrestling’s most influential and controversial factions have never been known to mince their words. Therefore, when the trio of Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman (X-Pac) spoke to Sports Illustrated, they didn’t deviate from their personalities and revealed some never before heard news. The Inquisitr recently reported that the “Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels was close to jumping ship in the 1990s and join the rival promotion WCW. But being under contract and ultimately loyal to WWE prevented that from transpiring. However, Kevin Nash claims that 25-year veteran of WWE, The Undertaker was close to joining the now defunct promotion in 2000. “We had ‘Taker close. All of a sudden he wasn’t the Deadman. He became the American Badass for a reason. That Deadman wasn’t going to f—in’ come to WCW. He would have been the biker character and gone by Mark Calaway. That is a surprising claim from the 55-year-old Nash as The Undertaker, alongside Shawn Mic ...

WWE calls audible, renames Heath Slater, Drew McIntrye, and Jinder Mahal stable '3MB'
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
It was just last week that Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre, and Jinder Mahal were being called "The Band" on WWE.com. Naturally, reports went out stating as much and calling out the obvious issues with as much. After all, that was the name of the New World Order (nWo) retread TNA tried to pull off a couple years ago with Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman. So WWE apparently realized its mistake, called an audible, and came up with something new. The "3MB." Presumably, that stands for "3 Man Band." Here's their segment from Raw last night (and big props to McIntyre for the ring entrance): This has to be a rib, right? All three guys are committing to it in a big way, maybe because they're just grateful to get the TV time and an actual story, but this has to be a rib, right?

Video: WWE Champion King Mabel? Viscera says it could have happened at SummerSlam 1995
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
Our Canadian friends, The Score, recently saw down with Nelson Frazier better known as Mabel, King Mabel, Viscera or Big Daddy V. They covered a few different topics including how their rapping manager, Oscar, got paired up with him and his partner Mo. Turns out Vince McMahon and "Macho Man" Randy Savage shared an elevator with him, he busted a flow and they were so impressed, Oscar was soon signed to a contract. He also discussed the origins of Viscera and how he enjoys the recent reappearances of Vader, Sid and the other Legends WWE is bringing in. The biggest bit of news comes when he discusses his rulebreaker turn leading up to the 1995 King of the Ring and his WWE Championship title match against Diesel at SummerSlam 1995. Were we supposed to get a new champ that night? Frazier says so: "Vince was leaning towards me and... anybody knows The Kliq, they can change things around so that's what happened." The Kliq, of course, being Shawn Michaels, Kevi ...

You say you want a revolution?: WWE's new viral campaign promises an uprising
Cageside Seats - almost 5 years
WWE viral marketing can be a lovely thing. The often cryptic messages tend to tickle our brains and set us up for a brilliant return or a swerve that will leave us marking out with our jaws on the floor. Then again, there are always the Kizarnys of the world. WWE has started a new viral campaign which will serve as an introduction to various video content on their website. Depictions of uprising and war are set to music akin to Attitude Era stylings, which culminates in a sign that tells viewers that a "revolution is coming." Playing fantasy backstage writer, I notice that there are a lot of "X" symbols in this video. No man on the roster is more identifiable with the "X" than our straight edge champion, CM Punk. Could Chick Magnet Punk be leading a rebellion against the beloved John Laurinaitis? Or some other power that controls the action in the ring? Or maybe, just maybe, Sean Waltman will be in our lives once again! What say you, fellow Cagesiders?

Scott Hall's lawyer claims that he's not guilty of domestic abuse
Cageside Seats - almost 5 years
The sadly turbulent life of former WWE and WCW wrestler Scott Hall hit a new low last Friday when he was arrested for attacking his girlfriend, Lisa Howell, while drunk. According to TMZ, Howell told police that Hall "had been drinking for days" when they got into an argument, which eventually led to Hall grabbing her by the throat and trying to pull her out of the driver's seat of her car when she attempted to leave said confrontation. The police bought her story as she had "several signs of physical injury ... including red marks around her neck", so Hall was arrested for domestic battery. Apparently Hall was so drunk that the local jail refused to book him and he had to be taken to a hospital for medical clearance first. As is common in such cases, Howell so far has refused to press charges, which is a misplaced loyalty, as he clearly needs yet another intervention to stop his life spiralling further out of control. However, Hall still has the wherewithal to find a ...

  • 2008
    Age 35
    In an early 2008 interview, Juventud Guerrera, who had been working with Waltman in AAA, claimed Waltman had recently tried to commit suicide due to depression.
    More Details Hide Details The Wrestling Observer reported Waltman's then-girlfriend Alicia Webb had found him hanging by his neck in his Mexico City apartment, on the verge of death. In a 2013 interview with Steve Austin, Waltman explained that, due to a pro-cocaine, anti-marijuana locker room attitude in AAA, he was pressured by Webb to give up the habit for the sake of his job, and turned instead to drinking. Never having been a heavy drinker and claiming to hate the taste, he nonetheless began drinking a fifth or more of Oso Negro a day, and often argued with Webb. In this argument, he said, she hit him several times and broke a picture of his son, successfully attempting to goad him into hitting her. Her son saw Waltman land a straight right that "knocked her across the room". Drunk and overcome with shame and guilt, he chased about 40 Valium pills with Bacardi rum, wrote a suicide note and hanged himself with a hose from a beam in his rooftop garden before blacking out and waking in a hospital with a catheter and pure-red bloodshot eyes.
    After leaving for rehab in mid-2008, he returned at Verano de Escándalo (Summer of Scandal) that September, turning on the Foreign Legion and forming D-Generation Mex, a parody of D-Generation X, with Rocky Romero and Alex Koslov. He later feuded with one of AAA's top stars, El Zorro.

  • 2007
    Age 34
    In June 2007, Waltman, as X-Pac, began working regularly for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), initially a member of Konnan's La Legión Extranjera (Foreign Legion) and managed by girlfriend Alicia Webb.
    More Details Hide Details He usually used the D-Generation X entrance music.
    On July 8, 2007, Waltman teamed with Billy Kidman in a three-way tag match in McAllen, Texas for the NWA World Tag Team Championship, which had been vacated by Team 3D after the NWA stopped working with TNA.

    In February 2006, Waltman joined MTV's newly formed Wrestling Society X (WSX) promotion, as 6-Pac.
    More Details Hide Details At their inaugural tapings on February 9, 6-Pac had a ten-man hardcore battle royal ladder match, which both he and Vampiro won by climbing the ladder to retrieve WSX contracts. 6-Pac lost a WSX Championship title match to Vampiro the following week. He challenged Vampiro in episode four, as a ruse to introduce Ricky Banderas, who attacked Vampiro from behind. He later defeated Human Tornado and Scorpio Sky in singles matches, and teased an affair with Lizzy Valentine (the valet and girlfriend of Matt Sydal), though WSX folded before the angle could go on any further.
    He wasn't seen again until a one-night return at Final Resolution on January 15, 2006, brought in by Larry Zbyszko to defeat his rival, Raven.

  • 2005
    Age 32
    At Hard Justice in 2005, Waltman replaced Jeff Hardy, who no-showed, and lost to Raven in a Clockwork Orange House of Fun match after being back body dropped through the steel cage.
    More Details Hide Details On June 19, at Slammiversary, Waltman wrestled a five-man King of the Mountain match for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. He lost, but cost defending champion A.J. Styles the title by delivering an X-Factor off a ladder. This turned him heel and led to a grudge match at No Surrender, which Styles won after guest referee Jerry Lynn prevented Waltman from cheating. Waltman challenged Lynn to a match at Sacrifice. After losing by victory roll, Waltman attacked Lynn and tried to reinjure his shoulder. Waltman then partnered with Alex Shelley to win the Chris Candido Cup.

  • 2002
    Age 29
    Immediately before his high-profile TNA X Division Championship match against AJ Styles in October 2002, he injected meth in the bathroom, which led to him forgetting the finish to the match.
    More Details Hide Details He was soon after gone from TNA. He kicked the habit after Paul Levesque tracked him down and paid to send him to rehab. Vince McMahon later paid half the cost, calling Waltman a friend. Waltman was also in a relationship with and eventually engaged to Joanie Laurer, who formerly competed as Chyna in the WWF. Later on Laurer and Waltman split. In March 2005, Waltman appeared on the VH1 reality TV show The Surreal Life when he visited Laurer in an attempt to reconcile with her. After Laurer refused to reconcile, Waltman was eventually ejected from the house by the other guests.
    They divorced in 2002, which Waltman attributed to incompatibilities in their newfound crystal meth habits ("She ran with it, I kept it under control").

  • 2001
    Age 28
    When Credible joined the ECW/WCW Alliance X-Factor broke up. At Summerslam 2001 X-Pac defeated Tajiri to win the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship for the second time and was WCW Cruiserweight Champion at the same time.
    More Details Hide Details X-Pac then feuded with Kidman and Tajiri. After losing the WCW Cruiserweight title to Kidman, he took time off for another injury. The WWF Light Heavyweight Championship was abandoned upon his return to TV, though he defended it at several house shows shortly prior. Hall, Nash and Hogan returned to the WWF in 2002 as the New World Order, brought in by Vince McMahon. Hogan was kicked from the group after losing to The Rock at WrestleMania. X-Pac, who had been out with an injury, returned on the March 21 episode of SmackDown!, rejoined the nWo and attacked Hogan. He said he had been waiting four years to do so, because Hogan shot on WCW Thunder after Waltman's firing, saying he could not "cut the mustard". The storyline was dropped after the first WWE Draft, when the nWo went to RAW and Hogan to SmackDown.
    After returning from his neck injury in early 2001, X-Pac briefly feuded with Chris Jericho over the WWF Intercontinental Championship, culminating in a fatal four-way match with Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero at No Way Out in February, which Jericho won.
    More Details Hide Details In February, X-Pac formed a new stable called X-Factor with Justin Credible and Albert. During this time, he usually teamed with Credible, but also appeared in singles matches. He won the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship from Jeff Hardy on June 25, then won the WCW Cruiserweight Championship for the second time in his career when he defeated Billy Kidman on July 30. Despite this occurring during the WCW Invasion, where the WWF side was mostly portrayed as the good guys, the fans were vocal in their disapproval of Waltman during his reign. This was acknowledged on-screen by both Alliance member Billy Kidman and, later by WWF member Edge.
  • 2000
    Age 27
    In 2000, X-Pac feuded with fellow DX member Road Dogg, and Chris Jericho, whose botched powerbomb sidelined Waltman for three months with another neck injury.

  • 1999
    Age 26

    More Details Hide Details
    Waltman lost the title to Shane McMahon on February 15, 1999.
    More Details Hide Details At WrestleMania XV, he lost a championship rematch when Triple H betrayed him, and hit him with his Pedigree finisher. X-Pac then sided with Road Dogg against Triple H, Chyna and Billy Gunn, after the temporary demise of DX. X-Pac and Road Dogg wanted a reformed DX to be about rebellion, while the others wanted it to be about making money. X-Pac became a face and befriended Kane, a mute, angry loner whom he partially socialized and encouraged to speak, through an electrolarynx. They won the WWF Tag Team Championship twice together.
  • 1998
    Age 25
    Initially called "The Kid" on the WWF website, he became known as "X-Pac" by the next Raw. X-Pac feuded with Jeff Jarrett, ultimately defeating him in a hair-vs-hair match at SummerSlam, then with WWF European Champion D'Lo Brown, whom he dethroned on September 21, 1998.
    More Details Hide Details He re-lost the title to Brown two weeks later, then won it again at Judgment Day: In Your House in October.
    Waltman returned to WWF TV on the March 30, 1998 episode of Monday Night Raw, the night after WrestleMania XIV and days after his firing from WCW.
    More Details Hide Details With Shawn Michaels beginning a four-year retirement after a WWF World Heavyweight Championship loss and back injury, Triple H was now the leader of D-Generation X (DX). He said he was forming a DX army and "when you start an army, you look to your blood... you look to your buddies... you look to your friends... you look to The Kliq." Waltman appeared on the stage, commented on Bischoff and Hogan, and said if they weren't contracted to WCW, Hall and Nash would have also returned to the WWF. Bischoff responded on Nitro the next week by telling Waltman to "bite me."
  • 1997
    Age 24
    In mid-1997, the nWo invoked "Wolfpac Rules", allowing Syxx to replace the injured Kevin Nash in defending the WCW World Tag Team Championship with Scott Hall.
    More Details Hide Details On October 13, 1997, Hall and Syxx lost the title to The Steiner Brothers (Rick and Scott). In October, a neck injury sidelined Waltman from wrestling, but he continued to appear on TV for several weeks after. While later recuperating at home, he was fired via Federal Express by WCW President Eric Bischoff. Waltman claims this was a power play aimed at his friends Hall and Nash, whose backstage influence was felt as a threat. Bischoff later said Waltman was a competent performer when sober, but sober periods were "few and far between", and "in many ways, Sean was lucky to even have a job."
    In June 1997, he lost the championship to Chris Jericho at a webcast house show in Los Angeles, California, minutes after successfully defending against Rey Mysterio, Jr.
    More Details Hide Details During a feud with Ric Flair, and a loss to him at Road Wild in August, Syxx disparagingly portrayed Flair as part of an nWo segment parodying his Four Horsemen group. This segment led to a WarGames match at Fall Brawl, where Syxx, Kevin Nash, Buff Bagwell and Konnan defeated The Four Horsemen (Flair, Steve McMichael, Chris Benoit and Curt Hennig) after Hennig betrayed the Horsemen and joined the nWo.
    In his first major angle, Syxx stole Eddie Guerrero's WCW United States Heavyweight Championship belt, leading to a ladder match for the title at Souled Out in January 1997, which Syxx lost.
    More Details Hide Details The next month, at SuperBrawl VII, Syxx pinned Dean Malenko for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship, after hitting him with the title belt, which he had grabbed from Guerrero at ringside.

    On September 16, 1996, Waltman was shown sitting in the front row for a live episode of WCW Monday Nitro.
    More Details Hide Details Later that night, he stood and used a remote control to release New World Order (nWo) propaganda from the ceiling, revealing himself as the newest member of the recently formed faction. He was called Syxx, because he was the sixth member of the nWo, and six is the sum of numbers in "1–2–3 Kid".
    After Survivor Series, Kid joined Ted DiBiase's Million Dollar Corporation faction. He remained with the group until May 1996 when Waltman left the WWF.
    More Details Hide Details He lost a "Crybaby match" to Razor Ramon at In Your House 6. The 1–2–3 Kid's final WWF match aired on the May 20 episode of Monday Night Raw; he lost to Savio Vega. Notably, Waltman was the only Kliq member not involved in the infamous "Curtain Call" that took place at Madison Square Garden the night before his final match from his first WWF run aired, as he was in drug rehab at the time and thus didn't participate.

    At Summerslam 1995, he lost to Hakushi but won a rematch in November after Ted DiBiase interfered.
    More Details Hide Details He was the sole survivor of his Survivor Series match, besting rival Marty Jannetty. Razor and Marty would team up to beat Kid and Sid at In Your House 5.

    He wrestled Bret Hart in an unusually long (for the time) and highly acclaimed match for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship in July 1994 on Raw and had another brief (one-day) tag title reign in January 1995, with Bob Holly beating Bam Bam Bigelow and Tatanka at Royal Rumble (1995) before losing to The Smoking Gunns on Raw.

    He and Marty Jannetty were the sole survivors, which led to them forming a tag team and holding the WWF Tag Team Championship for a week in January 1994 after beating The Quebecers.
    More Details Hide Details For the next two years, The 1–2–3 Kid was a natural underdog and fan favorite.
  • 1993
    Age 20
    He wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now called WWE) under the ring names 1–2–3 Kid and X-Pac intermittently between 1993 and 2002, World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as Syxx, and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) as Syxx-Pac and Sean Waltman.
    More Details Hide Details He is signed with WWE working in their Legends program. Waltman has won a dozen championships between WWE, WCW, and TNA; the majority were cruiserweight and tag team titles. He is the only wrestler to have held the TNA X Division Championship, the WCW Cruiserweight Championship and the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship; he also held the WCW Cruiserweight and WWF Light Heavyweight titles simultaneously. He was also the final WWF Light Heavyweight Champion before the title was retired in favor of the Cruiserweight Championship he simultaneously held. He was part of The Kliq, a group of wrestlers known for their influence on WWF storylines in the mid-1990s. Waltman joined the school wrestling team in ninth grade, but quickly quit rather than cut his hair. After training under Boris Malenko, Joe Malenko, Masami Soronaka and Karl Gotch, Waltman began his career as The Lightning Kid. He worked his way through various independent promotions, including Pro Wrestling America (PWA) and the Global Wrestling Federation (GWF), winning the PWA Light Heavyweight title, the PWA Iron Horse TV Title and the GWF Light Heavyweight Championship. During this time, Waltman worked extensively with Jerry Lynn in North America and Japan. They often wrestled each other, but also teamed up to win the PWA Tag Team titles twice in 1993.

  • 1992
    Age 19
    While working for Larry Sharpe and Dennis Coralluzzo's WWA Promotion on November 28, 1992 in Clementon, New Jersey his opponent "The Kamikaze Kid" Bill Wilcox overshot a suicide dive and landed on Waltman's head, driving it to the concrete and causing a blood clot near his brain.
    More Details Hide Details He was hospitalized for three days, could not work for four months, and was advised to give up wrestling completely. As The Lightning Kid, Waltman had his WWF tryout match in Phoenix, Arizona, the day after WrestleMania IX, against fellow hopeful Louie Spicolli (soon known as Rad Radford in the WWF). He reminisced that he was lucky to have an opponent with a vested interest in an impressive match, rather than (as was then typical) a disinterested WWF veteran jobber like Virgil or Jim Powers. After earning a contract, he made his TV debut as The Kamikaze Kid on Monday Night Raw on May 3, losing to Doink the Clown. He quickly became The Cannonball Kid, then simply The Kid. After several weeks as a jobber, he scored an upset pinfall on Razor Ramon on the May 17 episode of Monday Night Raw, thus becoming The 1–2–3 Kid. Razor challenged him to a rematch, wagering $10,000 of his own money. Kid accepted the challenge, but grabbed the money and ran from the arena during the match. Ted DiBiase, who was feuding with Razor, taunted him over losing to a nobody. This angered Kid, and led to a match in which he upset DiBiase as well. Razor turned face shortly after and took Kid under his wing. The 1–2–3 Kid made his pay-per-view debut at SummerSlam, losing to DiBiase's tag partner Irwin R. Schyster after Razor had defeated DiBiase.
