Before Mike Shaw was Bastion Booger, before he was Friar Ferguson, he was Norman The Lunatic in WCW.

That was his entire gimmick- he was a stereotypical “crazy guy” who escaped from an insane asylum and (of course) had wild, crazy hair and was still wearing his asylum-issued outfit.

Oh yeah, and he was managed by Teddy Long, playa!

Norman would carry a Teddy Bear around with him because… he was both CRAZY and a thus also a man-child (of course… sigh).

WCW decided to sell that Teddy Bear up there wearing a shirt that says “I’m Crazy About Norman” because they know that most people like Teddy Bears (gee, I guess those people aren’t crazy…)

Aside from being a bad word pun, the slogan and the gimmick itself are remarkably insensitive to people with mental health issues.

This is the kind of gimmick I would have expected to see in the 1960’s, not 1990!

When the gimmick you came up with makes Friar Ferguson look dignified by comparison that is one sad statement!

    Is it me, or is that little punk wearing the replica belt look like he’s giving us the Stone Cold salute?
