Fannish Subject Matter

After Cactus Jack and Maxx Payne defeated Bob Cook and The Sheik (George Weingeroff) on the January 15, 1994 episode of WCW Saturday Night, Mean Gene Okerlund interviewed them regarding their feud with The Nasty Boys.

I'd like to talk about something else first. The Flintstones, Gene. I love the Flintstones. But you answer me this:


Cactus Jack: How many times does Fred have to buy the ribs before he realizes the car's gonna tip over?


Gene Okerlund: [laughing] I know that story! Give me a break!

Cactus Jack: Well let's check back into reality. The fact is that Fred Flintstone's a cartoon character and Cactus Jack is just a mortal man. But not when it comes to the Nasty Boys! I'm not mortal anymore! I'm Cactus Jack! and this is Maxx Payne. Which means January 27, Clash of the Champions, on live national TV! We're going to take those gold belts from around your disgusting, fat, putrid waists and put 'em on our fat putrid waists! Gene, trust me, it'll be a do time, a dabba do time, we'll have a gay old time! BANG BANG!...

Gene Okerlund: All right gentlemen. Coming up in a week and a half on TBS, the 27th of January, these two men will meet the Nasty Boys on the Clash of the Champions.

Cactus Jack: [Interrupting] We'll have a gay old time! BANG BANG!

Fan Community Nicknames

As Dude Love in WWE in 1997, he would call his fans his "Love Children."


As Mick has been married since 1991, he doesn't get this treatment much. There is one story which combines him with Woman (Nancy Daus-Sullivan Benoit), which, based on their interactions in ECW in 1994-1995, qualifies as "Enemy Het." More often, Mick is used as a character in stories where the focus is on other peoples' relationships.
