Professional wrestling career

Early career

After being trained by former professional wrestling brothers Boris and Joe Malenko, Waltman began his career as The Lightning Kid, working his way through various independent organizations such as Pro Wrestling America (PWA) and the Global Wrestling Federation (GWF), winning the PWA Light Heavyweight title,[5] the PWA Iron Horse TV Title[6] and the GWF Light Heavyweight Championship.[7] Throughout the early part of his career, Waltman worked extensively with wrestler Jerry Lynn in both North America and Japan. The duo even teamed up to win the PWA Tag Team titles twice in 1993.[8][9]

World Wrestling Federation (1993–1996)

Waltman signed a contract in 1993 with the company, debuting as the Lightning Kid and losing his debut match to Rad Radford.[4] After several weeks as a jobber, he upset Razor Ramon on the May 17, 1993 episode of Monday Night Raw.[4] Waltman was given a number of different names such as the Kamikaze Kid, Cannonball Kid, and The Kid. Waltman was then renamed the 1-2-3 Kid.[9] Waltman was worked into Ramon's feud with Ted DiBiase. DiBiase taunted Ramon repeatedly over losing to a nobody until he too was pinned by the Kid. Ramon turned face shortly after and took The Kid under his wing.[4]

For the next two years, Waltman's character played the role of the natural underdog and displayed a rebellious attitude until the Raw before the 1995 Survivor Series pay-per-view where he was the guest referee in a match between Razor Ramon and Sycho Sid. As Ramon was attempting his finisher, the Razor's Edge, The Kid pulled Sid down and fast counted him, giving Sid the win and thus turning heel. After this event, the Kid joined Ted DiBiase's Million Dollar Corporation faction.[9] The 1-2-3 Kid remained with this group until the end of Waltman's first run in the company. In his first run, he held two World Tag Team titles, once each with Marty Jannetty and Bob Holly,[10] and came close to defeating Bret Hart for the world title in July 1994.[9]

World Championship Wrestling (1996–1998)

He continued using the 1-2-3 Kid name until his departure for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1996. Upon joining WCW, he immediately became a part of the nWo group. Waltman appeared, sitting at ringside, during a live episode of WCW Monday Nitro on September 16, 1996.[11] At one point in the show, he stood up and used a remote control to release nWo propaganda from the ceiling, revealing himself as the newest member of the recently-formed villain faction.[11] To play upon his previous on screen character of 1-2-3 Kid, he was given the name Syxx, supposedly because he was the sixth member of the nWo, as well as the fact that adding the numbers one, two and three equal the number six.[9] Waltman, now known as Syxx, immediately began taunting the cruiserweights, going as far as to steal Eddy Guerrero's WCW United States Heavyweight Championship title belt, an act that led to a ladder match for the title at the 1997 January event Souled Out, which Syxx lost.[9]

In February 1997 at SuperBrawl VII, Syxx had another opportunity for championship gold, against Dean Malenko. Syxx won the match by submission to officially become the Cruiserweight Champion.[9][12] In June 1997, he lost the Cruiserweight Title to Chris Jericho at a non-televised webcast house show in Los Angeles, California minutes after a successful defense against Rey Mysterio, Jr.[4] Syxx then began a feud with Ric Flair, losing to Flair at Road Wild in August. Syxx was then involved in a parody of the Four Horsemen stable, where he portrayed Ric Flair.[9] This led to the WarGames match at Fall Brawl, with Syxx teaming with Kevin Nash, Buff Bagwell, and Konnan to face the Four Horseman team of Flair, Steve McMichael, Chris Benoit, and Curt Hennig. The nWo won the match after Hennig betrayed the Horsemen and joined the nWo.[9]

During the Fall of 1997, the nWo invoked "Wolfpac Rules" and named Syxx as a replacement for the injured Kevin Nash as part of the Outsiders with Scott Hall in defending the WCW World Tag Team Championship. On October 13, 1997, Hall and Syxx lost the titles to the Steiner Brothers (Rick and Scott).[9]

During that October Waltman injured his neck and was forced out of action, but continued to appear on camera for several weeks after.[4] While recuperating from his injury, Waltman was fired by then WCW President Eric Bischoff as a show of force to keep Hall and Nash in check due to locker room instability caused by the three,[9] as well as Waltman's lack of commitment. Bischoff claimed that Waltman was a competent performer "when sober," but that these periods were "few and far between." He asserted that "in many ways, Sean was lucky to even have a job."[13]

Return to the WWF

D-Generation X (1998–2000)

Waltman returned to WWF programming on March 30, 1998, the night after WrestleMania XIV and days after being released from WCW.[2][9] With Shawn Michaels out of action following his title loss and back injury, which kept him inactive for four years, Triple H was now the leader of D-Generation X (DX). He stated that he was forming a DX army and "when you start an army, you look to your blood ... you look to your buddies ... you look to your friends ... you look to The Kliq."[2] Waltman appeared on the stage and commented on Bischoff and Hogan, as well as claiming that if contractually free to do so, Hall and Nash would have been joining him in returning to the WWF.[2][9] This comment actually prompted Bischoff to respond on Nitro the following week, telling Waltman to "bite me."[14]

Following that Raw episode, Waltman was initially being billed as "The Kid" on the WWF homepage but became known as "X-Pac" by the next broadcast. As a member of DX, Waltman feuded with many wrestlers such as Jeff Jarrett, and he eventually won the WWF European Championship from D'Lo Brown in 1998.[15] He and Brown traded the title a couple of times with Waltman ultimately winning the championship at Judgment Day: In Your House in October 1998.[9] Waltman held the European Championship until February 1999 when he lost the title to Shane McMahon.[15] At WrestleMania XV in 1999, he had a rematch with McMahon for the European Championship, but Triple H betrayed him and cost Waltman the title.[4]

Waltman then paired off with Road Dogg against Triple H, Chyna and Billy Gunn, after the temporary demise of DX. Waltman and Road Dogg wanted DX to be about rebellion while Triple H, Chyna and Billy Gunn wanted it to be about making money.[4] A few weeks after WrestleMania, he became a fan favorite and formed an alliance with Kane; a mute, brooding, menacing loner. Waltman and Kane went on to hold the WWF Tag Team Championship two times.[10] After DX was reunited in late 1999 as a villainous group, Waltman led Kane to believe that he would be inducted into DX but instead betrayed him and eventually stole his girlfriend, Tori.[9]

In 2000 he feuded with fellow DX member Road Dogg and Chris Jericho. Waltman would then be out of action for three months due to a neck injury caused when Jericho botched a powerbomb later that year.[4]

X-Factor, nWo and departure (2001–2002)

Upon his return to action, Waltman found himself without an angle. His most notable actions in the next two years were forming the short-lived faction X-Factor along with Justin Credible and Albert.[9] During this time, he won the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship[16] and the WCW Cruiserweight Championship,[12] held by Billy Kidman, and became the first and only person to hold both belts simultaneously; despite X-Pac being a part of Team WWF during the Invasion angle, the fans were still not cheering for him and eventually the reaction he was getting began to bear his name, "X-Pac heat", which has since been applied to any wrestler who the fans have no desire in watching. (The term had long been referred to as "go home heat" or "go away heat" before Waltman.)

When X-Factor broke up due to Credible joining The ECW/WCW Alliance, he feuded with Kidman and Tajiri, until he had to take time off for another injury, after losing the WCW Cruiserweight Title to Kidman.[4] The WWF Light Heavyweight Championship was abandoned upon his return to WWF television, although he defended the belt on several house shows just before his return to television.

When Hall, Nash and Hogan returned to the WWF in 2002, Hogan was removed from the latest incarnation of the nWo. Waltman, who had been out with an injury, returned and immediately attacked Hogan, claiming he had been waiting four years to do so, stemming from shoot comments from Hogan on WCW Thunder in 1998 after he was fired that he could not "cut the mustard."[9] This storyline was immediately dropped with the nWo members being drafted to Raw while Hogan being drafted to SmackDown! in the first ever WWE Draft Lottery.

During the nWo's feud with the tag team of Booker T and Goldust, Waltman was often misrepresented as refusing to lose to Booker T, but he denied this in an interview in November 2006, referencing a botched spine buster giving him an injury and keeping him from participating.[17] On August 25, 2002 Raw commentator Jim Ross announced that WWE and Waltman had parted ways.[4]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and Xtreme Pro Wrestling (2002–2003)

After departure from WWE, Waltman joined TNA Wrestling on September 18, 2002, wrestling under the ring name Syxx-Pac. Teaming with his former tag team partners Scott Hall and B.G. James, Waltman feuded with Jeff Jarrett and Brian Lawler.[9] On October 9, 2002, Waltman made his X Division debut, defeating six other wrestlers to win the vacant TNA X Division Championship in a ladder match.[18] He held the title for two weeks before losing to A.J. Styles on October 23, 2002 in a no disqualification match. He remained in TNA until November 2002, and is said to have left due to the arrival of Vince Russo, who, it is said, Waltman did not like. Waltman has stated in interviews, however, that he has no problem with Russo.[9]

Waltman debuted in Xtreme Pro Wrestling on February 28, 2003, winning the XPW Television Championship from Kaos.[9][19] He retained the title in a bout with Juventud Guerrera on March 1, 2003 and held the title until the promotion closed in April 2003.

Return to TNA (2003, 2005–2006)

Waltman returned to TNA for a single night on June 18, 2003 at the TNA first anniversary pay-per-view, where A.J. Styles was to team with a mystery partner against Jeff Jarrett and Sting. Styles' manager Vince Russo described the mystery partner as being "a dirtbag," "a degenerate," and "the scum of the Earth" before adding that he was "just like [him]." Russo then announced the return of Sean Waltman. Waltman and Styles went on to lose the match.[9]

Russo left TNA in November 2004, and Waltman returned to the promotion on February 13, 2005 at Against All Odds, attacking Jeff Jarrett during his NWA World Heavyweight Championship match with Kevin Nash. Nash, Waltman and Diamond Dallas Page formed an alliance against Planet Jarrett (Jarrett, The Outlaw and Monty Brown) which disbanded when Nash and Page left TNA to focus on their respective acting careers.

At TNA's Hard Justice in 2005, Waltman substituted for Jeff Hardy, who no-showed, and faced Raven in a Clockwork Orange House of Fun match.[4] Waltman lost the match after Raven back-dropped him through a steel cage. On June 19 at Slammiversary, Waltman took part in a five man King of the Mountain match for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. In the course of the match, Waltman cost the incumbent and defending champion A.J. Styles the title, by delivering an X-Factor off a ladder. As a result, Waltman turned heel.[9] The heel turn eventually lead to a match between Styles and Waltman at No Surrender, which Styles won after guest referee Jerry Lynn prevented Waltman from cheating. As a result, Waltman challenged his former partner to a match at Sacrifice. After Lynn won the match with a victory roll, Waltman attacked him and endeavored to re-injure his shoulder.

After Sacrifice, Waltman was partnered with Alex Shelley, and together they won the Chris Candido Cup. As a result of their tournament victory, Waltman and Shelley received a shot at the NWA World Tag Team Championship at Unbreakable. At Unbreakable, however, Waltman was announced as having no-showed the event. He was not heard from until September 19, 2005 when he was reported to have contacted a family member in Florida. Waltman made a final appearance with TNA at Final Resolution on January 15, 2006, defeating Raven with the assistance of Larry Zbyszko.

On September 15, 2006, Waltman made an appearance at a live WWE show in Tampa, celebrating with the newly reformed DX after their match, performing the crotch chop with them.

Wrestling Society X and National Wrestling Alliance (2006–2008)

Waltman as the NWA Heritage Champion

In February 2006, Waltman joined MTV's newly formed Wrestling Society X (WSX) promotion. At the inaugural WSX tapings on February 9, 2006, Waltman (wrestling as 6-PAC) faced nine other wrestlers in a hardcore battle royal ladder match, which both Waltman and Vampiro won by climbing the ladder to take possession of WSX contracts. Waltman lost a WSX Championship title match to Vampiro the following week.[9] Waltman challenged Vampiro during Episode four, as a ruse to introduce Ricky Banderas, who attacked Vampiro from behind. Afterwards, Waltman defeated Human Tornado and Scorpio Sky in singles competition, and teased an affair with Lizzy Valentine (the valet and girlfriend of Matt Sydal), though WSX folded before the angle could go on any further.[9]

On July 8, 2007, Waltman teamed up with Chyna as part of a triple threat match in McAllen, Texas to crown the new NWA World Tag Team Champions. The title was previously vacated by Team 3D after the National Wrestling Alliance severed its working relationship with TNA Wrestling. They lost the match to Karl Anderson and Joey Ryan.

Waltman re-appeared on the May 14, 2008 edition of NWA Wrestling Showcase, facing Adam Pearce for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. The match came to a quick end when Waltman legitimately injured his knee five minutes into the match. Waltman won by disqualification when The Real American Heroes attacked him, along with Pearce. On June 1, 2008 Waltman and The Sandman wrestled in a tag team match for the NWA against the Illuminati which resulted in a defeat for Waltman and the Sandman.

Asistencia Asesoria y Administraction (2007–2008)

In June 2007, Waltman began wrestling as a regular in Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) as alternatively 6-Pac or X-Pack as a member of Konnan's La Legión Extranjera (Foreign Legion). He was managed by girlfriend Alicia Webb.[9] Waltman usually used the D-Generation X theme music when he came out to the ring. He briefly left to go into rehab back in mid-2008, but returned at the Verano de Escándalo event in September 2008, turning against the Foreign Legion and announcing the creation of D-Generation Mex, a parody of WWE's D-Generation X, alongside Rocky Romero and Alex Koslov. Afterwards, Waltman started a feud with one of the top figures of the organization, El Zorro.

Waltman can be briefly glimpsed in Justin Lee Collins' 2009 reality series - Justin Lee Collins: The Wrestler, when Collins attends an AAA event.

Independent circuit

Waltman as the 1-2-3 Kid in Chikara in April 2011.

On August 8, 2009 at GLCW Slamfest, Waltman became the new GLCW Heavyweight Champion after defeating Skull Crusher. Al Snow was stripped of the title as he was unable to make it to the show.

On March 5, 2011 Waltman reunited with former D-Generation X members Road Dogg and Billy Gunn at Pro Wrestling Syndicate in Long Island, New York. At the event, he landed on the guard rail resulting in a serious chest wound that put Waltman in the emergency room.[20]

On March 15, 2011, Chikara announced that Waltman, billed as the 1-2-3 Kid, would be making his debut for the promotion on April 15, when he would enter the 2011 King of Trios tournament, teaming with Arik Cannon and Darin Corbin.[21][22] On April 15, Team Minnesota was eliminated from the tournament in the first round by Team Michinoku Pro (Dick Togo, Great Sasuke and Jinsei Shinzaki).[23] The following day Waltman entered the Rey de Voladores tournament, defeating Amazing Red, Frightmare and Obariyon in a four–way elimination semifinal match to make it to the following day's finals.[24] On April 17, Waltman was defeated in the Rey de Voladores finals by El Generico.[25] After the match Waltman announced that he believes 2011 will be his last year in professional wrestling, put Chikara over as the "future of wrestling" and thanked the promotion for a weekend he claimed he would never forget.[26][27]

Return to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2010)

January 4, 2010, special live, three-hour Monday night edition of Impact! Waltman and Scott Hall returned to TNA on the night Hulk Hogan made his debut for the company. Kevin Nash, Hall and Waltman quickly reformed their alliance, but Hogan kept himself out of the group, claiming that times have changed.[28] At Genesis Waltman, renamed Syxx-Pac, replaced Hall and teamed up with Nash in a losing effort against Beer Money, Inc. (Robert Roode and James Storm).[29] On the following edition of Impact! Hogan, disgusted by the actions of the Band, had security remove Waltman and Hall from the Impact! Zone, since they were not under contract with the company.[30] Waltman and Hall appeared the following week anyway, attacking Kurt Angle from behind.[31] The week after that Hall and Waltman returned again, but this time they turned on their longtime friend Kevin Nash and beat him down.[32] At Destination X Syxx-Pac and Hall faced Nash and Eric Young in a tag team match, where the Band's TNA futures were on the line. In the end Nash turned on Young and helped the Band pick up the victory, which finally gave them contracts with the company.[33] On the March 29 edition of Impact! the Band lost a six man tag team steel cage match against Eric Young, Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy.[34] Waltman was scheduled for a tag team match at Lockdown, but was absent from the event and was replaced by Nash.[35] It was later reported that Waltman had let TNA know days in advance that he was not cleared to wrestle by the Missouri State Commission due to his hepatitis C diagnosis and was not going to be able to attend the event.[36][37][38] On the April 26 edition of Impact!, Waltman was found on the floor backstage in a pool of his own blood by Team 3D.[39] It was later reported that this would be his last TNA appearance for an undetermined period with Eric Young taking his position in The Band.[40] On June 15, 2010, it was reported that Waltman had been released by TNA.[41]

Return to World Wrestling Entertainment (2011-Present)

On April 2, 2011, Sean Waltman made his return to WWE television to celebrate his longtime friend Shawn Michaels induction to the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame alongside his Kliq buddies Triple H and Kevin Nash. Since then Sean Waltman has been scouting and evaluating talent in Florida Championship Wrestling, the WWE developmental territory. On November 18, Sean Waltman was added to the Alumni section on WWE.com and participated on an article with Shawn Michaels related to the Triple H and Kevin Nash feud.

Personal life

Waltman was married to a woman named Terry. Together they have two children: a son Jesse (born 1992) and a daughter Kaitlyn (born 25 January 1995) before divorcing in 2002.[42] Waltman was also in a relationship with and eventually engaged to Joanie Laurer, who formerly competed as Chyna in the WWF.[9] Before Laurer and Waltman split, they filmed a sex tape which was later released under the name 1 Night in China in late 2004.[9] Since WWE still owned the rights of the name Chyna, the video included footage of Waltman in China walking over to the Great Wall to spare Red Light District Video any legal issues. As a result, Waltman made his porn star debut. In March 2005, Waltman appeared on the VH1 reality TV show The Surreal Life when he visited Laurer in an attempt to reconcile with her. After Laurer refused to reconcile, Waltman was eventually ejected from the house by the other guests. Three days after that episode was aired, Waltman posted a statement about the episode in his forums, where he also revealed that Laurer was upset with him after, in part, learning about his sexual relations with Jenna Jameson, "four years prior" to the two of them getting together.[9][43]

In an early 2008 interview at inyourheadonline.com, Juventud Guerrera, who had been working with Waltman in AAA, claimed Waltman had recently tried to commit suicide due to depression.[44] This was confirmed by The Wrestling Observer, which reported that Alicia Webb had found Waltman hanging by his neck in his Mexico City apartment, on the verge of death. He was subsequently taken back to the U.S. for treatment. Reportedly, Waltman had been speaking positively of his experiences in AAA, and he has denied attempting suicide, claiming the incident was a result of mixing alcohol and anti-depressants. Following the incident, long-time friend Kevin Nash flew to Texas to check Waltman into a rehabilitation facility for both his addiction and his psychiatric state. Nash also contacted friend Paul "Triple H" Levesque to discuss the new WWE policy of financing rehab for ex-employees.

Sean is currently shooting a documentary called The Price of Fame about his past, present and future in and outside of the ring. The film also stars Ted DiBiase Sr and will be released sometime in 2011 apparently it will also have the late Chris Benoit .[citation needed]
