    When he worked behind the scenes, he ended matches in the same fashion, like having the referee become distracted, then having the bad guy cheat, win the match, then another referee would run in and tell what really happened.
    He was sometimes confused with a baseball player of the same name.
    His WWF theme song was a favorite among fans.
    He often had larger crowd reactions than Hulk Hogan in his heyday.
