Career

Stipich trained as a professional wrestler under Dory Funk Jr., debuting in 1996 under the ring name “Shawn Stasiak” for the Vancouver-based independent promotion Pacific Coast Championship Wrestling.

World Wrestling Federation (1998–2000)

In 1996, Stipich sent a tape consisting of vignettes to the World Wrestling Federation, with one of the segments seeing him dressed up as a Halloween character named Fobia and instructing kids on how to trick-or-treat safely. The character’s origin story was based on a nest of spiders that lived under his bed. After reviewing the tape, the WWF allowed him to have a tryout match in October 1997. Stipich was then signed to a developmental deal in January 1998, and he began training with Tom Prichard in the Memphis, Tennessee-based Power Pro Wrestling, where he stayed until he was called up to the WWF in 1999. While with PowerPro, one of the angles he was involved in revolved around Jerry Lawler and his real-life wife, Stacy “The Kat” Carter. Stasiak first won the services of Stacy for two weeks by beating Jerry Lawler in a match. He then claims that they have started a relationship, and he introduces Stacy to his “sister” (storyline). The next week, he introduces Stacy to his “mother”, Mae Young. This begins a series of different matches between Stasiak, Lawler, Mae Young, and Stacy.

He made his WWF debut on the April 18, 1999 episode of Sunday Night Heat as Meat, attacking Tiger Ali Singh. He soon became the storyline “boy-toy” of the Pretty Mean Sisters (Terri Runnels, Jacqueline, and Ryan Shamrock), although Shamrock left the company a few months later. Meat picked up many victories for a few months over the likes of Droz, Brian Christopher, and The Blue Meanie. However, he would soon be relegated to that of a jobber, with the on-air explanation for this being that he would tire himself out before matches by sexually pleasuring PMS. This led to Jacqueline leaving Meat and Terri by themselves.

The character only lasted a few months before he split from Terri after Terri saw Meat kissing Marianna, Terri’s nemesis, on the Titantron. This led to her and Chaz attacking Meat. In the next couple of weeks, Stipich dropped the Meat name and began to compete under his Shawn Stasiak name. At Survivor Series, Stasiak was defeated by the debuting Kurt Angle.

Stasiak was later suspended in December 1999 after he recorded a heated conversation between Davey Boy Smith and Steve Blackman without their permission. Although Stasiak stated that this was done as a joke, he was fired regardless.

World Championship Wrestling (2000–2001)

After working on the independent circuit, Stasiak was signed by World Championship Wrestling in early 2000. After training in the company’s Power Plant wrestling school with Paul Orndorff, he made his WCW debut on the April 10, 2000 episode of Nitro by attacking Curt Hennig. He later joined the New Blood and began feuding with Hennig. He was soon given nicknames such as “The Perfect One” and later “Perfect” Shawn Stasiak, the latter of which was a parody of Hennig’s “Mr. Perfect” character. Stasiak picked up two victories over Hennig, one of which was Stasiak’s WCW pay-per-view debut on May 7, 2000, at Slamboree. Hennig soon became impressed with Stasiak and briefly coached him before Hennig’s WCW contract expired in June 2000.

In late May, Stasiak formed the tag team called the Perfect Event with Chuck Palumbo, and they soon won the World Tag Team Championship after defeating KroniK (Brian Adams and Bryan Clark). After winning the title, they began feuding with KroniK over the title. In August, the Perfect Event helped form The Natural Born Thrillers alongside Mike Sanders, Sean O’Haire, Mark Jindrak, Johnny the Bull, and Reno, while they were briefly “coached” by Kevin Nash.

Stasiak and Palumbo would later win the World Tag Team Title two more times before splitting in early January 2001 when Stasiak and Palumbo won a tag team battle royal with O’Haire and Jindrak. Sanders declared both teams victorious and that one member from each team would start teaming together and get a tag team title shot against The Insiders (Diamond Dallas Page and Kevin Nash). Palumbo began teaming with O’Haire and they defeated the Insiders and became the World Tag Team Champions while Stasiak and Jindrak began teaming together. In February 2001, the Natural Born Thrillers broke up when Stasiak and Jindrak became jealous of Palumbo and O’Haire. The two teams faced off at SuperBrawl Revenge on February 18, 2001, for the World Tag Team Title, but Palumbo and O’Haire retained.

In March 2001, Stasiak acquired the services of Miss Hancock as his valet, gaining the nickname “The Mecca of Manhood” in the process. He was also, in the storyline, hinted as the alleged father of Hancock’s baby, which later turned out to be a stack of 8×10 cameras in a stroller. As a heel, Stasiak used the cameras to take pictures of himself before throwing the pictures to fans as a way to show off his physique. While with Miss Hancock, he also started a brief feud with Bam Bam Bigelow. The feud culminated on the last episode of Nitro on March 26, 2001, as Stasiak defeated Bigelow in a tattoo match. Following this, WCW was purchased by the World Wrestling Federation and most of the talent contracts, including Stasiak’s, were picked up.
