Well all know Tazz as the street tough “Human Suplex Machine” from ECW or the perpetually bored announcer from TNA but not that many people have seen Taz’s original gimmick the Tazmaniac: a facepainted caveman in a neon orange Tarzan costume!
While Tazmaniac stay in USWA would make his way up to ECW (which was at the time NWA: Easter Championship Wrestling) and the rest was history. Also on the WWE Network there’s an episode of very early ECW television where you can see the Tazmaniac in all of his glory in a wild hardcore brawl in Sabu, while still doing this gimmick.
All i can say is “Wow!”.
This just goes to show that talent can exceed beyond the restraints of a crappy or strange gimmick like this one.
