Former ECW/WCW star Crowbar recently joined Fightful for an in-depth conversation about all things pro-wrestling, including his pro wrestling career.
During it, he opened up about where his unique ring name first came from.
“David Flair was hitting people with a crowbar, so Vince [Russo] wrote it into the story where they meet at a gas station. I remember the schtick was he pulls in for gas, and I’m filling up another car’s gas, and I yell at the guy because he asked me to check the oil. And I start b—-ing him out, and David loves it because he’s nuts, and he goes, ‘Hey, what’s your name?’ ‘Well, some people call me Crowbar.'”
