The Steve "Mongo" McMichael Appreciation Thread. Otherwise known as The SMMAT.

Please use this space to share your favorite memories of the late, great Mongo McMichael. Whether it was his pioneering finishing move, The Tombstone Piledriver(Subsequently stolen by the Undertaker), his patented briefcase(Subsequently stolen by I.R.S.), his valet, Debra McMichael trying to leach all of his heat(Subsequently stolen by Jeff Jarrett) or his innovative stable known as The Four Horsemen(Subsequently stolen by HHH's Evolution). Welcome to The SMMAT!

One of my fondest memories is when Mongo was forced to leave the announce booth because he was upstaging Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.

If Mongo Was given free reign, and allowed to lead the Horsemen as per his destiny, the NWO never takes over.
Better than Flair, FACT.

I liked Mongo for one reason.  He gave great coked up promos.  If there's one thing that's missing from wrestling today, it's the llello.

It was more than the coked up promos.  Mongo had his own language.  You could literally replace every other vowel sound with an "-arr" sound and you could sound almost exactly like him.  For instance, he was never in a team with "Flair." He was in a team with "Flarr." He is the longest lasting inside joke I have with my brothers.  Trying to cut a Mongo promo is fun.
