John “Earthquake/Avalanche/Shark” Tenta finally sheds all of the stupid gimmicks WCW had branded him with, and decides to wrestle under his own name.
It’s probably the most memorable thing he did during his entire run in WCW, and I think it’s a great little moment for John.
I’d like to think that it was his idea to say the “I’m not a shark! I’m not a fish! I’m a man! John Tenta! A 500 pound man!” line because he was fed up with being given all of these crappy gimmicks by people in WCW who had no idea what to do with him.
