Again from The Wrestling Card Collector’s Page comes this Wild Cat Willie (“W.C.W”- get It?) trading card from this line of WCW Main Event Trading Cards put out in 1995.
If Mr. Willie (boy, that sounds wrong) doesn’t look familiar; it’s because he was the mascot WCW used to bring out before WCW Worldwide and Saturday Night tapings would start to amp up the crowd.
He’d run around! He’d jump on a trampoline! But mostly he’d be really annoying.
Yes, WCW made a mascot for children that was so hideous and frightening that it was sure to scare the crap out of them!
That’s kind of the opposite of the effect you want a mascot to have, isn’t it?…
Sadly, due to budget cutbacks, Wild Cat Willie was put down in the late 90’s.
But not before he got his own t-shirt!
