An early master of the chokeslam and powerbomb, this monster first appeared in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as Sid Vicious. Shortly after his 1991 debut in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as Sid Justice, he was announced as the special guest referee for the SummerSlam main event match pitting Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior against Sgt. Slaughter, Colonel Mustafa and General Adnan. While he appeared to be on the side of Hogan, fans caught a glimpse of his true nature at the 1992 Royal Rumble when he eliminated “The Hulkster” in hopes of capturing the WWF Championship. They met at WrestleMania VIII as part of the double main event. Justice immediately left the WWF following the encounter and soon returned to WCW.
In 1995, he resurfaced in the World Wrestling Federation as Sycho Sid, the new bodyguard for Shawn Michaels. After a mishap cost his associate the WWF Championship at WrestleMania XI, Sid attacked Michaels the following evening on Monday Night Raw when he was informed his services were no longer required. Following a brief tenure with the Million Dollar Corporation, Sid was not seen in the WWF until July 1996. He patched things up with HBK and teamed with Ahmed Johnson against Vader, Owen Hart and The British Bulldog at In Your House: International Incident. Sid captured the WWF Championship on two different occasions, but his second reign ended at the hands of The Undertaker at WrestleMania XIII.
Sid parted ways with the World Wrestling Federation in 1997, then appeared in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in 1998 before returning to World Championship Wrestling the following year, where he held numerous championships including the World Heavyweight Championship. Although a gruesome leg injury in 2001 halted his career, he resurfaced on the independent scene in 2004.
