Sid Eudy

Sidney Raymond Eudy is an American retired professional wrestler, softball player and actor.

 

He is best known under the ring names Sid Vicious, Sid Justice, Sycho Sid, or simply Sid, and for his work in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, later WWE).

Between those promotions, Eudy has enjoyed major championship success and performed to an international television audience in four decades from the 1980s to the 2010s.

Eudy is a six-time world champion, having won the WWF World Heavyweight Championship twice, the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice, and the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship twice. In addition to world title success, Eudy held the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship once, among other accolades. During his tenures with the WWF and WCW, Eudy headlined multiple pay-per-views for both organizations, main-eventing WrestleManias VIII and 13 in 1992 and 1997 respectively, as well as WCW's counterpart to that event, Starrcade, in 2000.

Eudy entered the wrestling sport after an encounter with Randy Savage and his brother Lanny Poffo. After being trained by Tojo Yamamoto, Eudy made his debut as he teamed with Austin Idol and wrestled the team of Nick Bockwinkel and Jerry Lawler. He then adopted the masked wrestler persona known as Lord Humongous.

Eudy began his career in Continental Championship Wrestling (CCW) in 1987, under a mask and the name Lord Humungous. He also competed in New Japan Pro Wrestling NJPW), where he challenged Tatsumi Fujinami for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship under the name Vicious Warrior, but was unable to win the title. Eudy then made a very brief stint in World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), where he adopted one of his most notable ring names: Sid Vicious, which he took from the punk rock musician of the same name who played bass for the Sex Pistols.

On July 14, 2007, Eudy debuted in Memphis Wrestling and started a feud with old rival Jerry Lawler while serving as "Hollywood" Jimmy Blaylock's enforcer. Sid also appeared at the Juggalo Championship Wrestling event Evansville Invasion, helping Tracy Smothers attack the promotion's Heavyweight Champion Corporal Robinson. 

On February 28, 2009, Eudy returned to Memphis Wrestling and won a battle royal before defeating Lawler in a rematch. Later that year Sid began a European tour with American Wrestling Rampage. He was undefeated during the tour, including wins over X-Pac. Following this Eudy's appearances were greatly reduced as he began focusing on competition in over-50's bodybuilding. He would wrestle only three times in total in 2010 and 2011, defeating Chase Stevens, Josef von Schmidt, and Eddie Kingston.

On the June 25, 2012 episode of Raw, Eudy made his return to WWE as Sycho Sid in a match against Heath Slater, where he defeated Slater as part of the ongoing celebration building up to WWE's 1000th episode of Raw. It was his first appearance on Raw since the July 14, 1997 episode and his first match on the show since June 9 of that year. Eudy would reappear on the actual 1000th episode on July 23, where he and other WWE Legends helped Lita take down Slater. On August 5, 2017, Sid wrestled the last match of his career for Great North Wrestling in Ottawa, Ontario. 

Eudy made an appearance in the 2000 film Ready to Rumble alongside David Arquette and Scott Caan. In 2011, he starred alongside fellow wrestlers Kurt Angle and Kevin Nash in the horror movie River of Darkness. He also starred in the 2011 horror film Death from Above, alongside fellow wrestlers Kurt Angle, James Storm, Matt Morgan, Terry Gerin and Jessica Kresa.
