This one is Mr. Wallstreet’s WCW return promote. In it he takes shots at WWF’s New Generation and his previous gimmick.

Ah, yes… Michael Wallstreet.

They soon re-named him V.K Wallstreet.. V.K as in Vincent Kennedy (McMahon). This was years before WWE went public.

I guess it’s better than being the captain of a boat.

    “The new generation is nothing more than the ‘few’ generation”? Ouch! That right there is a real zinger. That must have hurt Vince so much that I bet he still wakes up at night stung by that one.

    Thanks, Wrestlecrap. Now I’ve got a craving for slim jims, hot pockets, and tootsie rolls.

      WrestleCrap is why you’re fat!

    • John C says:

      Perhaps you should have the lean pockets instead. If the IRS will be watching Wallstreet does that mean he would audit himself? It seems like you could really sprain something doing that to yourself.

      • The Doctor of Style says:

        Brilliant! You know, people often complain that there’s too much crossover between government staffs and the corporate world…

    Tony Sviavone says “new athlete” but the Michael Wallstreet character was in WCW in the early 1990s.

    • Boz says:

      To be fair Tony said a lot of things and I think at least 98% of them were rubbish 😉

      • Drew B says:

        That’s true. I was at a Gwinnet Braves minor league baseball game (where Tony Schiavone now broadcasts) last summer and after a two run home run he declared it was the most historic day in the history of the sport.

    • Jeremy says:

      Actually it was Eric Bischoff, not Schiavone.

  4. Mister Forth says:

    He looks rather motivated. Seems like he was the first to learn to Bolieve.

  5. Doc 902714 says:

    Seems like Michael Wallstreet, or formerly IRS, aka Mike Rotundo signing wasn’t enough of a splash for the very first Nitro.

    They had to smuggle in Lex Luger afterward.

  6. That Don Guy says:

    I remember when CNN’s Moneyline (anyone else remember when Lou Dobbs was CNN’s financial expert?) did a story on Michael Wallstreet; IIRC, they explained that it was Rotunda, but he “changed his name” after coming into some money.

    Mr. Wallstreet = WC induction
