X-Pac (Sean Waltman) revealed on the most recent edition of "X-Pac 1 2 360" what it was like being a smaller guy in the business when there were some many bigger guys competing back in the day:
"The way I looked and how I was, you talk about Marko Stunt, oh f*** people laughed at me. The first time I got in the ring, I wrestled Ricky Rice. He’s built very well, I mean not huge but f’n built well. And I was totally pale, skinny af, and so everyone laughed, they were all laughing at me as I come to the ring. So it took about a minute and then they were on their feet because I German-suplexed them, wrestled them, and then I dove out of the ring. No one had ever seen that kind of sh*t.
So, it didn’t take long. They took to me really quick, it was something different. Everyone else were these big jacked up guys, and to be honest with you, a lot of them had this sense of entitlement. That they were from Minnesota and they were jacked up on the gas, and that they were gonna get a phone call.
What was really important to me was to bring an extra amount of credibility to the sh*t I did compared to all these big goofs that were going out there. I mean not that their stuff looked really bad but my sh*t looked better. I wanted you to go ‘okay this guy is a skinny dude but he’s a f’n buzzsaw.’ And I was. When I was younger, in those days, I had a chip on my shoulder. I was in fights a lot. I really wanted everyone to know I was a badass."
