I remember being pretty impressed with him when he came into WCW. Thought he has a really good run in ECW. Had some great matches there. Went to the WWF and pretty much fizzled. And never did much in the States after that.

Do you think he went as far as he should have, based on his talent?

Was there something that held him back?

Was he:

2 Small?

2 Stoned?

2 Black?

Good in the ring but boring and bland in all other parts.

Agreed, and I think he should have been bigger in WCW as part of a tag team partnered with someone to do the promos and hold the match together in the ring, hot-tagging to Scorpio for the highspots.  Instead, WCW put him with the equally bland personality and shittier in the ring Marcus Bagwell.  Even at the time, that team didn't make a lot of sense to me.

Bagwell was another guy who I could not take.

Back in '92-'93 when he first came in and was doing shit like the 450 splash or tumbleweed, he was phenomenal to watch in the ring.  He never got a mega-push, but never lose sight of how fucking cool he was in WCW when there wasn't much to watch at all in North American wrestling.

That's exactly what I thought too. He was doing stuff that no one on the national scene was doing at the time.

He probably seemed bland in WCW, but they really didn't him many opportunities to portray himself beyond being one half of a babyface tag team. He would have been better served as a singles wrestler, but I think it was a case of bad timing in WCW. Wasn't he there during the period that light-heavyweights were being de-emphasized?

I thought he was cool enough but his career may have gone farther had he arrived on the scene a few years later during height of cruiserweight division where his skills could have been better utilized

I don't think I've ever heard Scorpio speak a single word during his career

He was at his best in ECW. He had great matches there.

When I picked up the Hardcore Homecoming show from '05, he was one of the only guys who could really put in a quality show/match, and after seeing that it made me realize what talent he really had. He never seemed to fit in within the US wrestling scene, but his time in ECW was very good.
