It Came From YouTube: Phantasio’s best (and only) WWF match

Introducing (and then quickly saying “Goodbye!” to) the mysterious magician Phantasio!

Oh sure, he’s no Black Scorpion, but I like him and his goofy magic tricks!

A shame we never saw him again. If he’d debuted about 5 years earlier, I think it would’ve been a hit.

    Phantasio should count himself lucky. His debut in the ring, magic tricks and all, lasted way longer than Paul Christie’s. How many apartment buildings do you think Phantasio moved out of due to his lack of cash flow? How many do you think Christie owned that Phantasio moved into?

  2. Nick Nutter says:

    This guy was AWESOME! If he’d debuted years earlier, or say in 2007 SmackDown land, he may have been a big hit.

  3. John says:

    Big deal I bet Pat Patterson pulled off a lot more guy’s underwear than Phantasio did.

  4. Emerson Witner says:

    For a Baldie, DeVito sure had a lot of hair.

  5. The Doctor of Style says:

    1 match only? Well, he was a magician after all–figures he’d pull a disappearing act!

    If only he could’ve waved a magic wand to change his tights into something not horrid-looking.

  6. Sean Bateman says:

    Devito later appeared as the ECWWE priest and Macho Libre

  7. Andre R. says:

    As I recall, he was the Spellbinder in the USWA. And he was an ally of Sid Vicious. That’s all I remember.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Now I want to see him trying to win Sid over by doing magic tricks for him and Sid having none of it.

  8. Sean Wilkinson says:

    I remember Phantasio from his initial old-school WrestleCrap induction and laughing hysterically at “the Magic Wedgie!” And that had only still photos!
