Today I am featuring 2 more cards from my first box of Leaf Originals. Both are former stars of WCW: Buff "Buff Daddy" Bagwell and "The First Lady of WCW" Missy Hyatt!
My friend Matt had a good laugh when he found out I pulled Buff's auto, as he knows that I hated Buff's character when he was a regular back in the late 90s. Matt loved the guy (though he may have been saying he did just to annoy me). I will admit that Buff wasn't all bad, and he did give us some truly memorable TV segments when his mom was briefly a recurring character on the show, highlighted by the infamous "Judy Bagwell on a Pole" match.
Unfortunately I saw very little of Missy during her active career. Her heyday was the late 1980s-early1990s, and at that time I watched WWF almost exclusively. She was a manager/valet for a number of wrestlers, including "Hot Stuff" Eddie Gilbert and the Steiner Brothers. She also spent several years as a commentator, at times feuding with fellow commentator Paul E. Dangerously (better known today as Paul Heyman, the current manager of CM Punk and Brock Lesnar). I have heard her on radio shows at F4Wonline.com a few times and she sounds pretty cool. One thing's for sure, she definitely is NOT afraid to tell you exactly what she thinks of other people in the wrestling business!
