"Oh, You're a very bad wrestler!"
"Oh, no my dear. I'm a very good wrestler. I'm just a very bad wizard."
When most pro wrestling fans think of Kevin Nash in World Championship Wrestling (WCW), they think of the New World Order (NWO), as Nash joined Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall as one of the founding members in what is widely considered the greatest faction of all time.
But just a couple of years earlier, before he would do his thing as "Diesel" in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Nash would become "Oz." Yes, named after the guy in The Wizard of Oz. He was even accompanied to the ring by "The Wizard" in what has to be the worst entrance music in the history of THIS BUSINESS.
It sounds like the first MIDI tune I ever played on my old 486.

Nash was seven feet tall and built like a brick shithouse and the best they could come up with was Will Ferrell in Elf.
It didn't help that Wizzy and Ozzy were forced to don those goofy masks and emerge from a giant paper mache fortress that looked more like Castle Grayskull than it did Emerald City. Unless, of course, you count that sickly green glow that bathed a shocked and confused audience.
Forget the Scarecrow, it was WCW that didn't have a brain.
