Is everyone that's a member of either HWA or Ohio Valley Wrestling under some sort of WWF developmental contract? If so, how come Shark Boy was able to do the WWA PPV when he's listed as a member of HWA's roster???
"Damn you Rock-Em Sock-Em Robots! Can't we all just get along?"
Eventhough Sharkboy was teamed up with such notable professional wrestling stars such as, Mightly Molly, Maven, and Steve Blackman, sadly he is not under WWF contract. I guess that HWA wrestlers not under WWF contract are able to wrestle for other promotions like the WWA. But the man(shark?) has many fans...
"We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell them stories that don't go anywhere. Like that time I took the ferry over to Shelbyville; I needed a new heel for my shoe. So, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickle, and in those days, nickles had pictures of bumblebees on them. "Give me five bees for a quarter," you'd say. Now where were we? Oh yeah, the important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have any white onions, because of the war; the only thing you can get was those big yellow ones..." -Abe Simpson
I don't think I'd go that far. What do you consider his peak as and how are you defining popularity? Sting, for instance, at his peak in 1997 was a bigger deal going into his match with Hogan than the Warrior ever was.
