A whole lot of people are talking about the n.W.o.’s recent arrival in the WWF. Fans are talking about the beatings that the unholy trio has given out to the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Those on the internet (and if we are to believe them, many in the WWF locker room) are worried that Hall, Nash, and Hogan will bring down morale, and hold back the young, hard working talent that are trying to claw their way to the top of the Federation.
While I can understand and even sympathize with the plight of the WWF midcarders, no one has a right to be ticked off more than a guy by the name of Jimmy Graffiti. Sound familiar? Probably not. You see, much like Lance Storm or Mae Young, Jimmy Graffiti was a midcard wrestler, only in his case, it was in WCW during the mid 90’s. He was actually a pretty talented guy, who was perhaps most famous as “Gigolo” Jimmy Del Ray, one half of Jim Cornette’s Heavenly Bodies along with Dr. Tom Prichard.
Anyway, to make a long story short, he landed in WCW in the mid 90’s, and his gimmick was that he spray painted things. Don’t ask me, I don’t know. That’s just what he did for fun I guess. Hell, he would even make a little “spraying” motion on his way to the ring.
Shortly after his arrival, the n.W.o. started spray painting everything in sight. Coincidence? Try CONSPIRACY, BABY! Those no-goodniks in black and white were obviously holding down the former Gigolo, whose career promptly went down the old Bemis.
So the next time you hear someone talk about the n.W.o. holding people back, I just want you all to think of poor, poor Gigolo Jimmy Del Ray Graffiti – the man who taught them everything they know about aerosol propelled paint, and who has naught to show for it.
