A guy that I always kind of marked out for but never really knew why, was Test. Test was a big part of The Attitude Era, as part of The Corporation and later, nearly marrying Stephanie McMahon. After a run in the early 2000’s with Stacy Keibler where he referred to his fans as ‘Testicles’, Test disappeared from TV after a back injury. He was released from the company, but returned in 2006 and debuted for the ECW brand. Where in the past, Test was basically just a misogynistic heel, he was now just an intense powerhouse, running through opponents until finally getting a shot at the ECW Heavyweight Championship at the 2007 Royal Rumble. Test lost this match, and the subsequent rematch, until eventually disappearing again before being released from the WWE.
Shawn Michaels Vs. Diesel
WWE WrestleMania XI - April 2nd, 1995
What began as a friendship developed into friendly competition. Shawn Michaels and his bodyguard, Diesel, were the best of friends, both on and off camera. At one point, the two were the WWE World Tag Team Champions. When Shawn won the 1995 Royal Rumble, he was greeted in the ring by his friend and the WWE Champion, who raised his hand for a celebratory high five. However, come time for WrestleMania, Shawn was all business, and he gave Diesel the fight of his life. The opening minutes of this match are some of the most intense moments in Mania history. Enjoy!
Don’t fuck with La Parka’s mascara, buddy.
Why the fuck do people feel compelled to do shit like this? “No, that big wrestler won’t beat my ass if I fuck with him.”
Big Daddy V 
Today was a dedication to a true WWE powerhouse. Big Daddy V, Viscera, King Mabel, whatever you knew him best as, was a true WWE legend and a monstrous entity over two decades. Nelson Frazier, Jr., you were a powerhouse personality, beloved, hated, and feared, and you will be missed. Rest in peace.
Matt Striker and Big Daddy V 
When ECW superstar Matt Striker was feuding with The Boogeyman and realized that he wasn’t able to defeat him, he called for a reinforcement. And man, when he put his cards on the table, he dealt a serious hand. The massive monster Big Daddy V debuted on the ECW brand in July of 2007, and in ECW, the monster was truly unleashed for the first time in years. With Striker in his corner, Big Daddy V went through the ECW ranks before becoming the number one contender for the ECW Heavyweight Championship. Despite being defeated by CM Punk at No Mercy, Big Daddy V went on feud with Kane and eventually compete in the Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out 2008. The winner of said match would be in the World Heavyweight Championship match at WrestleMania XXIV. Unfortunately for the big man, The Undertaker won the Elimination Chamber match, and Big Daddy V soon disappeared from WWE television.
The Undertaker Vs. Big Daddy V
WWE SmackDown - January 25th, 2008
Two monsters collide on SmackDown. The Undertaker and Big Daddy V are no strangers to each other. In 1995, The Undertaker was one of Mabel’s opponents in the tournament. In 1999, Viscera was a member of the Ministry Of Darkness. In 2004, Viscera and Gangrel returned to the WWE to aid JBL in his attack on The Undertaker. In 2007, Big Daddy V became a top contender on the WWE’s ECW brand, then ventured to SmackDown where he went one-on-one with his former ally and frequent adversary, The Undertaker.
"I just found out that Nelson Frazier had passed away. For those of you who don’t know him he was Visera/Big Daddy V/Mabel in the WWE. Nelson was always really kind to me and I’m gonna miss him very much. I just saw him a couple months ago with my partner Kenny at an autograph signing in NJ. We had lots of laughs together that day as well countless of matches together in the WWE. He was always just a great genuine man to be around. Id like to share a quick funny story involving Viscera & myself.
In one of our first matches as the Spirit Squad Kenny was wrestling Viscera at a house show while I was managing Kenny from the outside with my air horn cheering him on. My green SS pants that I wore were not stitched up on the sides at the time so the pants were only held together by those snaps like basketball players wear. The finish of the match involved Vis hip tossing me from the ring apron into the ring, but as he did that, my pants snapped off & I was laying in the middle of the ring with just my boxer shorts on. As Vis, Kenny and myself realized this just literally happened we started laughing our asses off as he then piled Kenny & myself on top of each other & did his patent “hump spot” in front of thousands of people. As the crowd boasted with laughter & cheers Kenny and myself ran to the back not believing what just happened. A valuable lesson was learned that night as well: ALWAYS sew your snap up pants if your going to wrestle in them!
RlP Big Vis…gonna miss ya buddy. You were a blast to work with.”

Kane (w/ Lita) Vs. Viscera (w/ Trish Stratus)
WWE Backlash - May 1st, 2005
The feud between Lita and Trish Stratus had an added umph when Trish Stratus employed the services of Viscera. What the WWE brass couldn’t have predicted was that this would create a monster character push for Viscera. The idea was that, if Viscera could take out Kane, he would get a piece of Trish later that evening.
The post-match is one of my favorite Big Vis moments in history. The fans go INSANE for Viscera instead of the possibly predicted sympathy for Trish, and when he splashes Trish, he’s literally inches away from squashing her completely! LOVE this match, and love this moment. It’s because of this moment that Viscera became The World’s Largest Love Machine!
Wrestling’s Greatest Lovers: Viscera and Lilian Garcia
When Trish Stratus had employed Viscera to help her take care of Kane, she had promised to “take care” of the big man. When she failed to do so, Viscera attacked her, gaining the approval of the crowd.
Viscera began wrestling in pajamas, but soon found himself interested in WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia. With some hesitation, Lilian returned Viscera’s advances and began a relationship with the World’s Largest Love Machine. When Lilian proposed to Viscera, he was about to accept when The Godfather entered the arena, showing Viscera what he would be missing out on if he committed.
Viscera and Val Venis became a tag team shortly after, but when Charlie Haas accidentally (but legitimately) knocked Lilian off of the ring and broke her wrist, it was Viscera who came to her aid. However, when Lilian said she just wanted to be friends with both men, Viscera and Haas became a tag team, leaving Lilian in the dust.
Winner Take Ho’s Match:
Viscera (w/ Mideon) Vs. The Godfather (w/ Mark Henry and the Ho’s)
WWE Raw - October 25th, 1999
A lot of what Viscera was doing in the Ministry Of Darkness was essentially filler for the big man to be a part of the group and add some muscle. However, when the Undertaker abandoned the group, the team of Mideon and Viscera remained a tandem and the two were a part of this classic segment from the Attitude Era.
The Ministry Of Darkness kidnaps Mabel 
At the 1999 Royal Rumble, former WWE superstar Mabel made his presence known as he took out Mosh of the Headbangers and made himself an entrant in the Rumble match. However, earlier in the evening on Sunday Night Heat, The Undertaker claimed that there would be a sacrifice made at the Rumble, and he made good on his promise.
Meeting Viscera 
At a Louisville house show in the Summer of 2005, my friends and I waited around outside the venue to attempt to meet wrestlers. By the end of the day, we’d met a good chunk of the roster, and one of those men was the monstrous Viscera. Despite his obvious intimidating appearance, Viscera was one of the nicest guys that I’ve met. I told him I still have one of his action figures in my collection and he smiled wide, then said “That was another plate on my kids’ table. Thank you, man.” He signed a bunch of stuff for us, too. Super nice guy, and sad that he’s gone.
Men On A Mission 
The team of Mabel and Mo were known as a monster team on the independents, but once they came up to the WWE, they were used more or less as role models. They were shown in vignettes talking about bringing up the ghetto, rather than embracing the tough lifestyle. Their manager was a rapper named Oscar, and collectively, they were known as Men On A Mission (or M.O.M., which could be the initials of the three men or the group’s name).
The team spent a year being babyfaces, keeping the crowd on their side with their signature “raise the roof” hand gestures and general good attitudes. However, when the team were entered in a tournament for the Tag Team Championships, they were eliminated in the first round. Despite this, they continued to try to climb the ranks the right way to achieve Federation gold, at least before being defeated by The Smokin’ Gunns. After the match, the team attacked Billy and Bart, and a week later, they called their opponents out to apologize only to attack them again. This time, they kicked Oscar out of the group (which was a shoot, because Oscar didn’t want them to be bad guys).
In 1994, Mabel won the WWE King Of The Ring tournament by defeating Savio Vega. Afterward, he adapted the moniker King Mabel, dubbing his partner as Sir Mo. During this era, Mabel started gunning for the WWE Championship, while Mo was essentially his sidekick. This run lasted through SummerSlam, where Mabel was defeated by Diesel. In early 1996, both Mabel and Mo were released by the WWE, and Viscera wouldn’t re-appear until two years later.
King Of The Ring Finals:
Mabel Vs. Savio Vega
WWE King Of The Ring - June 19, 1994
This is part 2 of the finals of the King Of The Ring tournament. In 1994, Vince McMahon had this idea of having the giant Mabel being carted around by servants in the WWE. Because of this, in 1994, Mabel of Men On A Mission became the WWE King Of The Ring. Here’s part 2 of that match.
Today is dedicated to the memory of Nelson Frazier, Jr. A man we knew as Mabel, Viscera, and Big Daddy V throughout his various runs in the WWE. I thought about doing this a while ago but put it off, and now, I regret doing so. I bet he would have loved this. I hope that fans of his will enjoy all of today’s posts, and that his legacy will live on.
