The Godfather Making Full-time Return To The Ring, WWE Highlights Warlord’s Career



the-godfather

- The Godfather is returning to the squared circle on a full-time basis. Promoters interested in booking the former WWE Intercontinental Champion can contact Joe DeFalco, at lvfuturestars@yahoo.com for information, rates and availability.

After parting ways with WWE in 2002, The Godfather changed industries; he manages the strip club Cheetah’s in Las Vegas, Nevada. He apparently caught the wrestling itch again in recent years as he has been making more frequent appearances at independent events and conventions, sometimes as his other notable persona, Papa Shango.

- Perhaps the most muscular wrestler in the history of WWE, The Warlord, is this week’s addition to the Alumni section on WWE.com.

The story of his mainstream career coming to an end in 1996 due to an automobile accident is acknowledged in his profile—he continues to compete at independent events on a sporadic basis. WWE also states that his work inspired future greats such as Chris Jericho and Batista. The Warlord crossed paths with Jericho early in the Canadian wrestler’s career, and assisted him with food matters while they traveled together overseas and in Japan. In the case of Batista, the multi-time WWE Champion has cited The Warlord as his all-time favorite wrestler.

“Batista names me as his favorite of all time,” said The Warlord in a 2010 interview with WWE.com. “It’s the biggest flattery I’ve ever had, and it really means a lot.”

- Total Divas begins airing in Australia on Thursday, October 17 at 8:30 p.m. on E!.
