Pro wrestling 101 the blue meanie


Brian Heffron (born May 18, 1973), better known by the ring name The Blue Meanie, is an American professional wrestler and actor. He is best known for his appearances with ECW from 1995 to 2000 and WWE from 1998 to 2005. His ring name is a reference to the Blue Meanies, creatures from the 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine.

Early career

The Blue Meanie WWE The Blue Meanie

Heffron started wrestling in the Midwest out of Al Snow's Bodyslammers Pro Wrestling Gym in Lima, Ohio in March 1994. He continued to wrestle in various independent wrestling promotions throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest regions until 1996.

The Blue World Order (1995–1998)

Heffron was noticed by Raven and Stevie Richards at a Steel City Wrestling show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was asked by Raven to become Richards' sidekick in ECW. He went on to become The Blue Meanie, taking his name and persona from the villains of the 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine, in 1995 in ECW at the November To Remember event. He was the flunky for Richards, who was the flunky for Raven. Heffron, Richards, and Nova performed several skits but their most famous was the bWo, a parody of WCW's top heel group, the nWo. Meanie played the role of Da Blue Guy in the bWo, lampooning nWo member Scott Hall's nickname "The Bad Guy".

Return (2000)

Under the name Blue Boy, Heffron returned to ECW in 2000. During this period, Heffron had lost over 100 pounds of weight. His gimmick was that of an arrogant stud who would insult the looks and weight of fans and other wrestlers, in an ironic twist.

Bluedust (1998–2000)

Heffron made his WWE debut on the November 22, 1998 episode of Sunday Night Heat. He spent some time in the WWE as part of Al Snow's J.O.B. Squad. He rose to short prominence as Bluedust, a revival of a 1996 mockery of the Goldust gimmick he used in ECW, this time paired with Goldust himself. Bluedust and Goldust were pitted against one another at WWE's St. Valentine's Day Massacre: In Your House pay-per-view, a match Goldust eventually won. Heffron would later be pulled under Goldust's "spell", calling him "mommy" and serving as a manager, all the while bickering with Goldust's other manager, Ryan Shamrock. After Goldust dumped both Meanie and Shamrock, Heffron made little headway in the WWE and left shortly thereafter.

Brief Return (2005)

The Blue Meanie Blue Meanie WWE

The Blue Meanie appeared at WWE's ECW One Night Stand pay-per-view on June 12, 2005. He made headlines at the event for being bloodied and deliberately (and legitimately) injured by WWE wrestler JBL. A few weeks after the incident, during which time Heffron indicated on his website that he was considering pursuing legal action against JBL, it was announced that he had signed a short-term deal with WWE and reformed the bWo with Stevie Richards and Simon Dean (formerly Nova). On the July 7 episode of SmackDown, the bWo drove to ringside in JBL's limousine, then proceeded to spraypaint "bWo" on the hood. This led to a No Disqualification match between JBL and Meanie later that evening, which Meanie won after interference from Richards and World Heavyweight Champion Batista. The Mexicools later defeated Meanie, Richards, and Nova in a six-man tag match at The Great American Bash.

In 2005, Heffron wrestled at Hardcore Homecoming against Tracy Smothers in what commentator Joey Styles called a "comedy match", and also appeared with Raven during Raven's match against Sandman. In April 2006, Heffron announced on his blog that he had been diagnosed with empyema, and had undergone emergency surgery to have part of his lung removed. On June 3, 2007, he defeated Smothers to become the World Champion again, but lost it at the next event on August 5, to Jason Bane in a Street Fight. On September 8, he defeated Troy Justice to become APWF Heavyweight Champion. On December 28, he was managed by Tammy Lynn Sytch and teamed with The Patriot to defeat The Sychadellic Sissies (Ace Darling and Nicky Oceans) at National Wrestling Superstars Holiday Tour.

On August 8, 2010, Heffron was slated to appear at the TNA PPV Hardcore Justice; however, he could not attend the event and was replaced by a fake Blue Meanie named The Blue Tilly.
