Anyone know what happened to this guy, and are there any reliable sites with pictures? I forgot what he looked like. Thanks, DMC (edited by DMC on 17.4.02 1442) Promote this thread!

Last I saw he was trying to get work modeling. He has a site on teh net with his portfolio. (edited by Eradicator on 17.4.02 2113)

(Supposedly Vicious was later replaced by the Undertaker?) DMC

Spivey was also the second version of the Varsity Club (He wore a Georgia jacket, but don't know his credentials). He also wrestled in All Japan for a while and teamed I think with Stan Hansen.

He used to have a website at www.danspivey.com, but I guess he took it down. Lack of modeling jobs I guess. Moe (edited by MoeGates on 17.4.02 2138)

Not enough to put him in a wheelchair though. He tried to get something going in Florida in a wrestling federation, but had no luck.

ICQ: # 7 Posted on 18.4.02 2029.40 Reposted on: 18.4.09 2030.03 Waylon Mercy was one of the most brilliant gimmicks ever. I wish Spivey could have stuck around a bit longer so the gimmick could realize it's full potential.

Those two psycho gimmicks would have been so cool to see paired up. I don't think there's any big guy in the WWF today who could pull that gimmick off like Dan. Both his knees, both his hips, his back are shot, and a few of his vital organs are operating at about 50%. Another guy paying for a hard life.
