It Came From YouTube: Kwang the mysterious ninja debuts

15 Submitted by on Wed, 12 March 2014, 02:49

This is Kwang.

He was a ninja.

He was a boss in the 32x version of the Raw video game. 

He went over like a lead balloon and lasted maybe a month.

Not even Jim Cornette could get him over.

He later wrestled as Savio Vega, Friend Of Razor Ramon.

People still didn’t care.

That’s about all I got for this one, Crappers.

He’s so dreadfully boring and un-developed as a character that I can’t think of anything more to write about him.

    Wasn’t he later the leader of Los Boricuas in WWE?

    What’s the sound of 300 pounds of crap hitting the fan?
    “KWANNGG!!!” :-P

    MacMahon’s promotional philosophy = tell people what they want instead of just giving them what they want.

    That’s how you get gimmicks like this.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Yup! That was their big problem up to around 1996.. It’s why 1994 and 1995 were such a mess.

  4. Nick says:

    How many good, or at least original gimmicks were there between 1994 and 1996. There’s Waylon Mercy, crazy Bob Backlund, Goldust and…uh…

    I swear, the blonde kid right before the 1 minute mark was muttering to himself: “This is Wrestlecrap”.

  6. Art0Donnell says:

    Kwang lasted a good year and a half, actually. Well, not a “good” year and a half, but ayear and a half. His last TV feud was with fellow heel Hakushi. Another bit of trivia? He wrestled his last match as Kwang in Singapore after he had already appeared at In Your House as Savio Vega. And he beat Doink in that match.

  7. CDM says:

    Lee Van Cleef was a more convincing ninja.

  8. AK says:

    I wanted to like Kwang. Kwang was supposed to be a ninja and ninjas were and are cool. Then he came down to the ring and even as a kid I thought he looked a little too beefy to be a ninja.

    Then he took off the mask which revealed another mask, and that’s when I stopped caring about Kwang.

    As Savio Vega, I guess I am in the minority by stating that I liked him. Perhaps the main reason I got behind him was his performance in the 1995 King of the Ring. He beat 3 guys in I.R.S, Yokozuna, and the Roadie. The guy wrestled 4 times in one night and unless someone knows something otherwise, I presume he was booked to get to the finals only to lose to Mabel who beat the Undertaker and then got a bye into the finals. So yeah Vince screwed Savio. Though I imagine even this accomplishment didn’t help get Savio over and that’s too bad.

    Then he became a Los Boricuas (after becoming a member of the Nation of Domination) and that’s when I stopped caring about Savio Vega.

    • The Doctor of Style says:

      I agree, AK. Savio was a decent face, an entertaining wrestler (until injuries slowed him down in his NoD run, I believe) and a strong contender for the IC title.

      Kwang, yeah, if he was a ninja, I think he was the kind who got demoted to the post of janitor at Ninja Junior High School.

  9. The Scanian Maniac says:

    Anybody remember the Super Ninja in WWE ca 1988, who wrestled the Ultimate Warrior for the Intercontinental Championship at Saturday Night’s Main Event, by the way? What ever happened to him?

  10. Brian says:

    I saw him at a house show in San Antonio once. We had pretty good seats for that one, but I can’t remembered who he wrestled. Duke the Dumpster was there as well, so it could have been him.
