This one is Mr. Wallstreet’s WCW return promote. In it he takes shots at WWF’s New Generation and his previous gimmick.

Ah, yes… Michael Wallstreet.

They soon re-named him V.K Wallstreet.. V.K as in Vincent Kennedy (McMahon). This was years before WWE went public.

I guess it’s better than being the captain of a boat.

    “The new generation is nothing more than the ‘few’ generation”? Ouch! That right there is a real zinger. That must have hurt Vince so much that I bet he still wakes up at night stung by that one.

    Thanks, Wrestlecrap. Now I’ve got a craving for slim jims, hot pockets, and tootsie rolls.

    Tony Sviavone says “new athlete” but the Michael Wallstreet character was in WCW in the early 1990s.

    • Boz says:

      To be fair Tony said a lot of things and I think at least 98% of them were rubbish 😉

      • Drew B says:

        That’s true. I was at a Gwinnet Braves minor league baseball game (where Tony Schiavone now broadcasts) last summer and after a two run home run he declared it was the most historic day in the history of the sport.

    • Jeremy says:

      Actually it was Eric Bischoff, not Schiavone.

  4. Mister Forth says:

    He looks rather motivated. Seems like he was the first to learn to Bolieve.

  5. Doc 902714 says:

    Seems like Michael Wallstreet, or formerly IRS, aka Mike Rotundo signing wasn’t enough of a splash for the very first Nitro.

    They had to smuggle in Lex Luger afterward.

  6. That Don Guy says:

    I remember when CNN’s Moneyline (anyone else remember when Lou Dobbs was CNN’s financial expert?) did a story on Michael Wallstreet; IIRC, they explained that it was Rotunda, but he “changed his name” after coming into some money.

    Mr. Wallstreet = WC induction
