Doesn't anyone remember the character Dave Sullivan, the "brother" of Kevin "Taskmaster" Sullivan. He was mentally challenged character also, and Kevin would verbally and physically abuse him, and Hulk Hogan ended up saving him setting up a Dave Sullivan and Hogan vs Kevin Sullivan and i forget who his partner was, but yeah, thats all McMahon is doing, doing another Dave Sullivan angle.

Uh, get it right, his name was Evad Sullivan. And his music, I want to be a Hulkamaniac by Jimmy Hart....those were the days!

Evad being Dave backwards, naturally. So, was he mentally handicapped or just very very dyslexic?

He was mentally handicapped in the angle, thats why I personally just think they are using this angle with Eugene (Nick Dinsmore) as another Dave (Evad) Sullivan angle, and probably will have some face come in and save him from Regal and Bischoff, starting a Eugene & ??? vs Bischoff & Regal angle.

See, the thing is, I don't remember Evad (or Dave) ever taking off in the fans' eyes. Sure, they loved him because he was a Hogan mark, but that was about it. In fact, I don't remember much, except for the fact that at one point, he had a pet rabbit in a cage, and would bring it to the ring (Did somebody wind up killing the rabbit?). When you start to rehash failed angles from a failed company, you're in trouble.

The rabbit became involved in a feud he had with DDP, as they tried to turn him into George Steele, Page into Randy Savage, and Kimberly into Miss Elizabeth. Unfortunately, Page still sucked at the time, Evad just sucked, and Kimberly was no Miss Elizabeth.



I want you to know, I agree with everything I just said.

The difference is that Dinsmore is supposed to be a pretty good worker, whereas Dave Sullivan was one of the worst wrestlers of all time. I'm withholding final judgement on Eugene until I actually see the character in the ring.

Someone may have mentioned this already, but the other antecedent to Eugene is Balls Mahoney's "Boo Radley" character (swiped from to Kill A Mockingbird)

If memory serves Boo was in a feud with Cactus Jack with Chris Candido pulling his strings and forcing him to attack Cactus Jack. Candido would threaten to kill Boo's pet (kitten? I think I think) if he didn't fight Cactus. Eventually, Chris Candido DID kill the kitten and Boo pounded him into mush.

This was in James E. Cornette's Smoky Mountain Wrestling if I remember correctly. Given the time that Nick Dinsmore has spent in OVW, I would think that this angle would be more likely to be inspired by something that Cornette had done than something that Kevin Sullivan had done.
