Mantaur

Mantaur made his WWF TV debut in January 1995. He wrestled in his only pay-per-view match at the 1995 Royal Rumble and lasted almost 10 minutes in the Royal Rumble match before being eliminated by Lex Luger. He also wrestled in a qualifying match for the 1995 King of the Ring tournament. He was pinned there by Bob "Spark Plug" Holly and subsequently eliminated from the tournament. Other than that his only other major match, was against Razor Ramon.

During his brief stint in the promotion he wrestled such "superstars" as Duke Droese, Man Mountain Rock, and Bob Holly, losing to most. In his final WWF appearance, he served as a lumberjack in the Lumberjack match between Sycho Sid and Diesel at In Your House 2.
He later made appearences in the WWF as Goldust's bodyguard, in ECW as the gangster "Bruiser" Mastino, and in the USWA as "Tank", part of the Truth Commission.
