Okay, I remember the guy. I know it was Dan Spivey. I remember the all-white clothes he wore. But did we actually ever see his gimmick in play? What was his gimmick, because I hear a lot of people here rave about it... but I don't remember them ever showcasing it at all on WWF TV.

Can anyone tell me anything that happened, because I only ever hear "that was such a great gimmick", but I never hear what he actually DID.

He was basically a Cape Fear Psycho. It was great because he would act like the nice guy, but in a real creepy way, and once the bell rang, he would just get brutal on his opponent, ending with his eyes bugging out during a sleeper. It was like he just mentally snapped, which was a nice change from the Hugh Morrus "Grrhh, I hate people, Arrrgghhh". Afterwards he would go back to acting like a creepy face.

I know that it ended within a few weeks because of an injury, but I'm not sure if it was legs or back or whatever.

I believe it was his back. The best part was right before he wrestled, they'd show him in the locker room shaking the poor jobber's hand that he was going to destroy later.

And the deranged look he had on his face when he held on the sleeper. Classic!

Than after his kicked their ass, he'd shake the KO'd opponent's hand.

Then of course the greatest spot I can ever recall....Waylon holding the ropes open for his opponent, then letting them go as he was coming in and knocking him over

Waylon: (To the ref) I'm sorry, my hands are sweaty and they slipped, is he okay?

I myself remember this gimmick. I knew he was the "bad guy" or "heel" but he was shaking peoples hands on the way to the ring. It confused the living heck out of me. I also remember he wore like hawian shirt to the ring before he took it off to wrestle in a white tank or "wife beater" *LOL*

Waylon Mercy also gets credit for the squash that effectively ended Doink's run. In a Raw match with Doink, the crowd was solidly behind Waylon, chanting "KILL THE CLOWN!" has he put Doink in the sleeper, then cheering wildly as Waylon got the win.

WWE should honestly bring back the gimmick with a new guy. Talk about a killer character, and it was long enough ago that casual fans won't remember the original. Hell, you could even bring in some young kid as "Patrick Mercy" or something, Waylon's son. Dan Spivey might be able to show up the odd time as a manager or something.

I remember those old school vignettes of Waylon Mercy. He would end the vignettes by holding both his hands out (like the "you're in good hands" insurance commercials) and eerily say, "Lives are gonna be in Waylon Mercy's hands."

I don't remember him wrestling more than a couple of times but, it was funny how he would act nice, then psychotic, and then apologetic after brutalizing his opponent.

I always wondered why Spivey's run in the WWF got cut so short with the Waylon Mercy character. He didn't wrestle more than a few months. Was it due to injuries or did he have heat with Vince?

Injuries. Spivey's back was teh fucked when he got into the fed, he just hid it well. After a bit, he retired due to all the injuries.

And yes, the gimmick was fucking GENIUS. Had they done it 2 years later, whomever would have been in the gimmick would have won the title, easily.

In addition to the ropes thing, he also did the 'slipped' excuse after DDTing a jobber on the floor. The KILL THE CLOWN chant is probably one of my favourite moments ever on Raw, highlighted by Vince's uncomfortable chuckle in reaction to it.

"Thanks for coming out to see me wrestle! Drive safely!"

Wasn't that the first time Vince said "That's New York for ya! When they hate you, they let you know about it!"

I hope they do something like this with Sean O'Haire.

Waylon Mercy was listed among members of the WWF's "New Generation" campaign from around '95-'96. Most of those lauded were silly character gimmicks who didn't end up lasting-sans Hunter Hearst Helmsely-although he changed the gimmick. Mercy was one of the few mistakes they didn't make, if you ask me, he just seemed so awesome. Could you imagined he vs Sid? And actually, as Dan spivey he had teamed with Sid in WCW as the Skyscrapers. Isn't that interesting?

    It couldn't have been during Doink v. Mercy, since, as per:

    http://www.angelfire.com/wrestling/cawthon777/95.htm

    WWF @ Worcester, MA - Centrum - August 14, 1995

    Monday Night Raw:
    8/14/95:
    Waylon Mercy defeated Doink the Clown via submission with the sleeper

    I have the tape of this, and I'd certainly concur as per the location.

It would only be a temporary comeback. Dean's 42 now. This rumor is about 4 months old, and has been dead for months. It does make sense to do it, though.
