It probably just has something to do with CRZ calling every spinning heel kick a "Viscera kick", despite the fact that when Viscera did it it was an alleged spinning heel kick.
Karl: If you had a neck and I had hands I would squeeze your brain which is your body right out of the top of your head which does not exist! Zorak: That's some great hair. Karl: Thanks, it's not real.
Ah, yes ... Viscera. My favorite Viscera moment was during a hardcore match on RAW. This was when the 24/7 rule was in full effect, and Bradshaw and somebody else were beating on each other by a beer stand out in the concourse. Beer was all over the floor. Viscera came stomping in, ready to get involved, and he slipped in the beer and fell flat on his ass. Best Viscera match ever.
Well, it doesn't have a birth-death date thingie by it, so I'm assuming Viscera is still alive. I think it's a reference to the fact that there was no mention of "King Mabel" on the opening KOTR montage, but I could be wrong. It just means "we remember him." That's all.

The word over on the KayfabeMemories.com EZBoard (you remember THAT, dontcha??!) is that he's still alive. Apparently, some guy with the exact same name (Nelson Frazier) passed away and the wrestling smarks got carried away with the info.

"Got my boy, he's willing and able What's his name? His name is Mabel! M to the A to the B-E-L He gets ready at the sound of the bell Slammin', bangin', yeah, doin' Doin' it like this, he's not woo-wooin' Doin' it like this Yo, tock tick But feel that Japanese spin kick!"
Yes, that was from memory. Yes, I realize how sad that is.
"The Giant?! The Giant! No! No! No! No! Can't be! Naaaaaaaaaaaah!"
Ah yes .... Viscera ... or "Big Vis" as JR got to calling him. No one and I mean NO ONE ever did a fall over on your stomach finisher like he did. Or was that his starter? It was always tough to tell since he had only that one move.
I remember the promo he had when he and Godfather were dueling for Mark Henry's soul (for those of you looking for a frame of reference this was the RAW after Mideon's "farm animals" promo)and Viscera cut a promo.
It was just about as terrible as you can imagine ("I don't like no farm animals. I like hos.") but damn if he didn't try his heart out to sell it like fate of nations hung on whether Godfather brought out local strippers or he brought out ugly fat chicks.
I don't mind WWE being bad. I only ask that it be entertainingly bad. Nuggets of Bizarro Joy like this are what keep me watching.
Got a great angle out of it as Vis the Evil Pimp, which like all Godfather angles sucked like a gay black hole. But he TRIED. Dammit, he TRIED.
. . .and dammit, I wish I had seen this earlier. I still laugh about him slipping on that beer too.
I had tickets to Armageddon '99 (which features Y2J winning the IC title, and the beginning of the Helmsley-McMahon era), and was scared shitless that they were going to have a Kane/Viscera match instead of a Kane/X-Pac match.
Even before I discovered the Internet wrestling community, I had a deep-seated hate for the entire Ministry of Darkness (Edge & Christain were the exceptions), and the thought of Kane vs. Viscera was too horrible to compare. I was very happy to have the Kane/X-Pac blow off...until I saw RAW the next night and saw that they were going to drag the feud on and on...as for Vis (my memories fuzzy), I think he ended up involved in the opening Battle Royal and had a somewhat humerous sketch when he broke the scale when Hardcore Holly tried to weight him (remember that gimmick?)
I'm such a Nowinski fan. He just seems so head and shoulders above Maven. I look at Maven and I see tough enough winner in the WWE because he won a contest. I look at Nowinski and I don't even see tough enough.
