The man formerly as Tracy Smothers early in his career prior to joining WWE in 1996. Very early on Tracy Smothers teamed with Steve Armstrong as the Southern Boys in various territories including WCW in the early 1990's. Following his departure from WCW he would join Smokey Mountain Wrestling where he would become a top star in the company holding the SMW World Championship on two occasions. Smothers got lucky as this was during a time when WWE was bringing in talent that had side jobs like TL Hopper, Duke Drose, Bastion Booger, and others. A number of these talent came along to WWE from Smokey Mountain Wrestling after the promotion closed and thanks in part to Jim Cornette getting him a job.
His name Freddie Joe Floyd was actually a rib directed at Jack and Gerald Brisco. At this point there really isn't much to go on considering he was an enhancement talent for the most part. After leaving WWE he would move onto ECW as a member of the Full Blooded Italians with Tommy Rich & Little Gudio. Smothers was an underrated competitor at his height, but didn't really have the full package on his own which is why he fit so well in a tag team. As of this writing Smothers is still an active competitor and a more then skilled wrestler in the ring learning from two of the best in the ring.
