Wrestling career
Greene had a couple of short stints in World Championship Wrestling. He debuted in WCW as a tag team partner for fellow NFL alum Steve McMichael, but McMichael turned on him in favor of joining the Four Horsemen. Greene disappeared from WCW for several months before returning to get revenge on McMichael in a singles match, where he defeated McMichael when the latter’s ally Jeff Jarrett accidentally nailed McMichael with a briefcase.

In May 1997 he teamed with Roddy Piper and Ric Flair to take on the nWo team of Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Syxx in a winning effort at Slamboree.

He then made a final return in mid-1998, teaming with former football player Bill Goldberg against the nWo Black and White. Greene left wrestling when NFL teams began requiring a “no wrestling” clause in his contract.

Greene utilized the powerslam as a finishing maneuver and also included the diving forearm smash, figure four leglock and scoop slam into his arsenal.

  2. Sure are a lot of celebrities passing away this year. A lot of them aren’t covid related, what is going on?

  3. Don’t look ahead too far, but there is still over a week left in 2020…

    The even years have always been good to us, and this time around the even year, 2020, has gone odd…

    Never thought people would be clammering for the beginning of an odd year, 2021….
