In late 1992, this accomplished veteran brought the circus act to WWE. His mean-spirited pranks both in and out of the ring made him a prime target of competitors and audiences alike. At WrestleMania IX, he attacked Crush with the aid of an imposter adding confusion to his cruel antics. Doink could not contain the joy he received by making others miserable.

After an incident with Jerry “The King” Lawler, fans began to embrace Doink, who displayed a softer side. His pranks brought out laughter from audience and he introduced a sidekick, named Dink. The two battled Bam Bam Bigelow and Luna Vachon at WrestleMania X. At that year’s Survivor Series, he assembled a crew of Dink, Wink and Pink to battle Lawler’s team of Queazy, Cheesy and Sleazy. Although his appearances became less frequent, he still makes unexpected appearances. Though fans and Superstars didn’t always appreciate his brand of humor, he always kept his opponents in stitches.
