Alex Wright will always be famous to me for a couple things:

1) His awe-inspiring intro video on the PS1's Monday Nitro (his back is facing the camera, then he spins around and hits a spiderman pose and says "Hey man. Hier ist Alex Wright! If you like high-flying action, like top-turnbuckle dropkich *pronounced phoenetically here* pick me!"). Priceless stuff there.

2) His epic match with Hacksaw Jim Duggan at some WCW PPV (Halloween Havoc? No, he lost to Brad Armstrong at Halloween Havoc) where Hacksaw refused to sell anything he dealt out when he was being hyped as an "Unstoppable new force in WCW".

3) Having decent matches before 98 and then his workrate then dropping south for the rest of his years.


Wherever you are Das Wunderkind, you've entertained me, and for that, I tip my glass to you.

thing is, when you play that taunt again, it's in German and it's not really good German...there were some big grammar problems in his bit there.

I'd like to see him in WWE, personally.

hell yea, i used to get up and dance around whenever i woke up early on a saturday morning and heard the entrance on wcw pro! call me what you will, but i was freakin' 11! leave me alone! mind you, if i heard it again i'd still probably dance, but we'll leave that one untouched.

i used to be a big fan of wright before i cared so much about workrate and stuff (that means in 1994 and 1995). hell, even after i grew into liking the more spotty high flying stuff, his shtick and personality made me giggle once in awhile, but his matches were never too special. the one that i enjoyed the most was him losing to arn anderson, i think it was on wcw saturday night? his victory over jericho for the cruiserweight title wasn't too bad either, but the tag team with disco and tokyo magnum was gold!

As Disco put it, they were something like "The Lemon and Lime, Step on a Dime, Tushy-Kickers".

I think Alex popped up in WCW again in late 2000. I'm thinking Dico was his partner, once more, and he was completely bald. He even won the tag team strap for a day or two, when WCW was in Germany. He was just plain ol' "Alex Wright", having dumped the Berlyn gimmick.

That lead to a mini-angle where Alex refused to go out to the ring for any of his tag matches with Disco, and when Disco went backstage to confront him, Alex busts out with "Disco. I don't LIKE you. NOBODY likes you!" Which also led to everyone in the entire world refusing to team with Disco for the remainder of WCW's lifespan, except Mike Sanders, who happily teamed with Disco because if he didn't, Ric Flair was going to make him clean toilets for the rest of his career.

I, too, would like to see Berlyn in WWE, complete with "O Fortuna!" entrance package. Maybe Batista could be his new "Wall." (With a better name, hopefully.)

SMELL THE RATINGS!

Actually, I think it was quite funny how WCW flopped the Berlyn gimmick. It flopped so horrendously that it was hilarious. He got a few wins to start out with (including one over Jim Duggan in a match where he was supposed to face Buff Bagwell, but apparently Buff refused to do the job or something. Big surprise). But do you know who broke Berlyn's winning streak?

BRAD ARMSTRONG!

...what?

It was Disqo's stuffed duck, and the fact everybody but him hated it and wanted it to die.

Does Batista need to be the enforcer yet again?

here's what I think would work:

the Unamericans continue to kick ass and announce they have a leader who's coming to lead them...they build up the entrance with three weeks of promos, not giving away who it could be. There would be a definate European flavour to it...

And suddenly, one day, as the Unamericans (Storm and Christian) are destroying some poor hapless jabroni (please let it be Triple H), the theme music comes on and out comes Berlyn and an entourage of bodyguards!

Berlyn comes in, attacks Triple H, and leaves him in a pool of blood. Test takes the American flag and drapes it over him...and hits him with the big elbow.

Then Berlyn would rant and rave in German, and the guys would then stomp down Triple H after he starts stirring.

Then the next week, if this were WCWs booking, he'd lost to Funaki! LOL!

In all seriousness, this could work.

Any thoughts?
