Back when he was wrestling in the original ECW, the Blue Meanie was able to capture attention because he was grossly overweight. That was a big part of what made the audience connect with his character. Then, he shocked the world when he dropped a lot of weight and became slim for the first time in years. The former bWo member has since regained some of the weight, but he is not anywhere near the level that he used to weigh.

Out of all the ECW names that were rumored for the Royal Rumble this past weekend, a name that was heavily pushed backstage was the Blue Meanie. A lot of people in the company feel that he was popular enough to receive a very warm ovation from the heavily opinionated Philadelphia crowd. It would have also made sense because the former bWo member was going to be hosting a DVD release with Stevie Richards for WWE in the coming weeks.
