Hardcore Holly this time. Hope you enjoy the list and find it very 


II. Mini-Hardcore Holly Bio & Tidbits

	Real Name: 
	Former identities, names, nicknames: Sparky Plugg(WWF, 1994),
	Bob "Sparkplugg" Holly(WWF, 1994-1997), Bombastic Bob(WWF,
	1998), Bob Holly(WWF, 1998-1999), Hardcore Holly(WWF, 
	Former Ring Escorts: James E. Cornette(WWF, 1998)
	Major Titles Held: WWF Intercontanental Title, NWA Tag Title
	as Bombastic Bob with Bart Gunn(then known as Bodacious Bart),
	WWF Tag Title(2) as Bob "Sparkplugg" Holly with 1-2-3 Kid, and
	as Hardcore Holly with Crash Holly

		Brought into the WWF in 1994 as Sparky Plugg. Had 
	name changed to Bob "Sparkplugg" Holly later that year. In 
	January 1995 at the Royal Rumble him and the 1-2-3 Kid
	(X-Pac) won the vacant tag team titles in a tournament final
	against Tatanka and Bam Bam Bigelow. However, the next day
	on RAW they lost the straps to The Smoking Gunns(Billy Gunn
	& Bart Gunn). 	

		In an April episode of RAW Holly beat Jeff Jarrett in
	a controversial match and was stripped of the title, they
	had a rematch on the next RAW for the vacant belt, and Jarrett
	won with help from the Roadie(Road Dogg).

		Holly was basically a jobber and was getting teamed up
	with other jobbers for most of '95, '96, and '97, like Alex
	"The Pug" Porteau.

		Holly the got a whole bunch of gimmick changes in '98
	and '99. First came Bombastic Bob, as he was teamed with 
	Bodacious Bart(Bart Gunn) and known as the New Midnight Express.
	WWF had an NWA faction with Jim Cornette as it's head leader, and 
	the NWA's Rock 'n' Roll Express just lost the belts to the 
	Headbangers, after a couple failed rematches, the New Midnight 
	Express appeared and beat the crap out of the Rock 'n' Roll

		They were in the Wrestlemania 14 Tag Team Battle Royal to 
	determine the #1 contenders for the WWF Tag Championship, the last
	2 teams were the New Midnight Express and the newly reborn Legion
	of Doom 2000, the Express finished second when they're both duped
	over the ropes simultaneously. 
		The next day on RAW they won the NWA tag belts from the 
	Headbangers, and successfully defended them at the April '98
	PPV, In Your House: Unforgiven against the Rock 'n' Roll Express.
	They got a tag title match againt the New Age Outlaws(Road Dogg
	& Billy Gunn) at the '98 King of the Ring and lost. They lost
	the NWA tag straps to the Border Patrol that August, and the team
	went there seperate ways after the lost.

		Holly re-emerged on an October episode of Sunday Night Heat
	where Al Snow debuted his new stable, The Job Sqauad, consisting
	of Al Snow, Bob Holly, and Scorpio. Later on The Blue Meanie, and
	Duane Gill would join the group. Holly was teaming with Scorpio
	from October '98 until Februay 1999 when Scorpio was fired from
	the WWF. 

		On an February episode of RAW, Al Snow was beating himself
	up in the ring, being a loyal Job Squad buddy, Holly went to help
	out Snow, but they ended up beating the heck out of each other. 
	Snow was suppose to have a Hardcore Title match at the February 
	PPV: In Your House: St. Valentine's Day Massacre against champ,
	Road Dogg, but just got injured days before the event and was 
	stripped of the title. So Holly and Snow fought for the title at
	Massacre in Memphis, Tennessee, and it ended up going into the
	Mississippi River, where Bob Holly pinned Al Snow on the riverbank
	becoming the new Hardcore Champ. Two days later at a RAW 
	television taping, Bob Holly renames himself Hardcore Holly.

		Holly lost the belt a month later in March to Billy Gunn
	on RAW, but won it back at Wrestlemania 15 in a triple threat
	Hardcore Title match between Billy Gunn, Holly, and Snow. He lost
	the belt to Snow at the April PPV: In Your House: Backlash, and 
	lost in a rematch with Snow at the May PPV: Over the Edge. 

		Then Holly sorta went insane, he was teamed with the Big
	Show on a Heat match, and mouthed off against Show by calling
	himself the Big Shot, in there match, Show chokeslammed Holly 
	and cost himself the loss. Holly would then challenge even
	more bigger opponents like Kane and the Undertaker. He was
	going around labeling himself a "superheavyweight," and finally
	after so many losses Hardcore introduced the WWF to his "cousin,"
	Crash Holly. In that interview they both had arguments, and
	they ended up beating up each other, but would team up again
	at the next tv taping, and end up beating each other up by night's
	end. They kept on managin to get tag team victories and won
	the tag team belts from The Rock and Mankind on an episode of RAW
	and held onto the belts for about a half a month until losing them
	to Mankind & Al Snow in November on an episode of Smackdown.

		This "superheavyweights" angle for Hardcore Holly may seem
	like his best one in the WWF so far, and hopefully he'll get more
	WWF gold in the future.
