 Legacy


Place in History - Sean Waltman has created a curious legacy in the pro-wrestling world.  In his early years, he was a groundbreaking talent who defied the size standards with his ability alone.  Despite his incredible athletic gifts and working ability, Waltman was forever undermining his successes and opportunities.  After breaking in under the guidance of Boris Malenko, Waltman became a hot prospect on the indies, especially after a series of matches with Jerry Lynn.  He was likely going to get a big break with New Japan, but decided to tour with the Universal Pro group, which tainted him in their eyes.  He caught on with WWF and really made his name there as the 1-2-3 Kid.  As good an underdog as there has ever been, the Kid was able to get further than anyone his size ever had in modern pro-wrestling.  He also became a key member of the Kliq.  In 1996, Waltman began the ball rolling for himself and his friends to jump to WCW for big money under the advice of agent Barry Bloom.  Although he never really reached the level he could have as Syxx in the nWo, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall became game-changers.  After being fired by WCW, Waltman returned to the WWF, joined DX and helped revitalize the company in the Attitude Era.  Again, he was given some great chances, but a combination of injuries and substance abuse problems plagued him.  At thirty, Sean Waltman seemed too young to be past his prime.  Over the last decade since he left the WWF, Sean Waltman has hit some incredible depths.  His drug problems, his relationship issues and his injuries took his self-destructiveness to near fatal levels.  Sean Waltman has now worked to clean himself up, he has been trying to restore his name and recently signed a WWE Legends contract.
