If I had to pick a wrestler who mostly wrestled in WCW and I had to have him be my all time favorite Wrestler from WCW, to me that would be an easy answer. I would pick Scotty Riggs or when he was in the Flock, just Riggs.
Most people remember Scotty Riggs as a member of the American Males, the tag team of Scott Riggs and Buff Bagwell. They would come out clapping and had the most interesting entrance theme quite possibly in wrestling history. They would go on and win tag gold. After that Buff Bagwell would go on to the NWO and Scotty Riggs would feud with the NWO and in fact represented WCW in NWO Souled Out 97.
To me this was an exciting time in wrestling and finally Scotty Riggs got a push to help WCW go against NWO with his ever famous line WCW 4 Life. To me that was awesome and got me so pumped because I was honestly never a NWO fan and so stoked that Scotty Riggs was a WCW guy, I was also 13 years old when this was happening.
Scotty would then go on and join The Flock wearing his ever famous Eye Patch. To me the Flock was the greatest faction ever in WCW. It was like a bunch of outsiders that came together and formed this interesting faction of various wrestlers with different gimmicks and backgrounds. The Flock would have a huge following and Riggs was simply awesome in it. He was so memorable with his eye patch, it was pretty awesome. It was also the prime time of WCW with the various NWO’s, WCW, The Flock and all the Japanese wrestlers that came to wrestle in WCW.
After The Flock disbanded Scotty Riggs would become the Narcissist which was my favorite gimmick of his. He use to come out with a mirror and admire himself. I thought it was great and he had a fun match at Spring Stampede vs Mikey Whipwreck in this gimmick. I always wished that they would have pushed him to win the US or TV title for WCW when he was in this gimmick. No matter what happened I was always a Scotty Riggs fan.
Scotty Riggs would leave WCW and go to ECW where he had a memorable match vs RVD which is absolutely a must watch if your an ECW fan.
Recently this past week marked 20 years since Nitro first debuted. Scotty Riggs appeared on many Monday Night Nitros and in fact was on the first 2 hour episode of Nitro. To me he will always be my favorite WCW wrestler and is in my Top 3 of all time favorite wrestlers. Scotty Riggs is happily retired from wrestling and is one of the coolest wrestlers on social media. It’s always awesome to talk to one your all time favorite wrestlers and hands down probably one of the nicest guys out of the ring.
If you ever get a chance go on the WWE Network, type in American Males, and type in Scotty Riggs and enjoy many great matches.
I love looking back wrestling's past. I view my job as bring new life to the part of wrestling some people thought was gone.
