    Nigerian Nightmare is a good one. Mr. Okoye was a scart dude for a while (esp on Super Techmo Bowl.)

    How about the not-so-nice Crystal Chandelier for Chris Chandler.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    We usually give nicknames to wrestlers at the high school level and one of my all-time favorites was Levi "Manic" Mundy.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
