It Came From YouTube: The Origin Of Flapjack Norton

Crapper Paul S. submitted this with a side of syrup and writes:

A former bodyguard for Prince and a professional arm wrestling champion Scott Norton is one of the strongest, scariest guys to ever step into the squared circle. Despite being a major star in Japan and a 2-time IWGP Heavyweight champion, Norton’s role in the WCW never really evolved outside of being an NWO lackey.

His early days in the AWA were worse as he was saddled in a cartoonish lumberjack tag-team and given the nickname “Flapjack.” Watch his tag partner Yukon John try to explain the name in this terrible promo.

That might be the single stupidest reason for a wrestler claiming to have a gimmick name and character ever… Earning his nickname because he ate a lot of pancakes!

He can cut down trees, and consume mass quantities of pancakes!

How thrilling! License To Print Ticket Sales(™)!

Still; it’s better than having to team up with Ice Train, I guess…

I wonder if Scott brought up his pancake-eating ability while chatting with Virgil/Vincent when they were both in the NWO B-Team together?

Maybe the conversation went something like this:

“I have a huge member!”* boasts Virgil/Vincent. “Just ask Pat Patterson! How else do you think I got my WWF job?”**

And then Scott fires (pun intended) back with “Oh yeah? Well I can eat over 200 pancakes in one sitting!”***

“Wow… Got me beat there!” says Vincent as he hangs his head in shame and sulks out of the locker room.

Anyway, thanks for the submission, Paul.

NO WAFFLES! (whistles)!****

* Allegedly.

** Also allegedly…

*** Alleged by John Nord himself up there!

**** Alleged by Willie The Waffle.

    This is allegedly the strangest origin story since that one about the radioactive spider and the nerd.

    Anybody else notice how Yukon John sounded a lot like Scott Steiner?
