Wrestler. He originally wrestled on the indy circuit and in Japan under the name Spanky; I believe he just finished out a term in Zero-One. If you've been watching Velocity lately, you've probably seen him work -- he's the masked guy who's come out under a variety of names, including the River Rat, Diamondback, and the Jet. And yes, he's damn good.

Oh!!! Spanky was River Rat!!! I was wondering about that, because the announcers kept saying how he looked similar to the last wrestler masked wrestler that had been on Velocity the week before.
When I first saw Nunzio, I had thought that HE was supposed to be this "Spanky" that everybody had talked about. But Nunzio is actually "Little Guido", right? Is Nunz from ECW? I think it's awesome that they are adding in a bunch of cool, quick and exciting light heavyweights. Gives Rey Rey some more opponents to fight with!

Oh yeah, if you need further evidence that Nunzio is the former Little Guido, watch as WWE (and more likely, Paul Heyman) tries to recycle the Full-Blooded Italians tonight on Smackdown.
The funny thing is, Nunzio would wrestle in Ring of Honor under his real name of James Maritato and go on about what a dumb gimmick the FBI was. Talk about irony! LOOK AT THE IRONY!
Despite all the good things I have heard about Spanky for the past two years, I am not impressed with him in the ring. Then again, it doesn't matter anyway because no cruiserweight is gonna be allowed to get over in WWE. Sadly, not even Misterio.

Christ, that is the biggest misquote that many take to be true in the WWE, that cruiserweights can't get over. Bill DeMott squashes Shannon, so IT MUST BE TRUE. I guess Shawn Michaels (225 pounds), Eddie Guerrero, Chavo Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, Christian, Lance Storm, the Hardyz, Rob Van Dam (220 pounds), Owen Hart, and Rey Mysterio have never been allowed to get over. Once again, just because Nunzio may get squashed by Rikishi, doesn't mean Crusiers don't get over, just look at the goddamn list above!
RIP Curt Hennig: Yeah, they call me a redneck, but you know---that's a beautiful thing!
You don't get it boy, this isn't a mudhole... it's an operating table. And I'm the surgeon. Something tells me to stop with the leg. I don't listen to it. But where in the world is there in the world A man so extroardinaire?
Good point about the cruiserweights who have gotten over in the past few years...but they aren't considered members of the cruiserweight division. Nobody in the cruiserweight DIVISION will be allowed to get over.
There's a lot of people jumping to conclusions over what will surely be a fifteen minute mini spot, sandwiched between 2 hours and 45 minutes of wrestling, on a program that bills itself as a pop-culture entertainment program.
