For many years he was the face of ECW, having long reigns as ECW world champion and ECW TV champion. But in the many times ECW has since been attempted to be resurrected, Shane Douglas has seldom been front and center of it.
Douglas is a controversial, outspoken personality. He started out training in the Northeast with Mick Foley and wetting his feet in Bill Watts' UWF promotion.
Douglas had a controversial interview style that made him both popular and, to a certain degree, alienated.
Douglas' career is quite interesting when you consider he started off pushed as a young white meat babyface, evolved into a blue chipper teaming with veteran Ricky Steamboat as WCW world tag team champions, had two brief stints in the WWF, and then was the face of one of the hottest promotions in the world.
Somewhere in there he rode a skateboard to the ring and, yes, Karl will look at that also.
