Brian Heffron “The Blue Meanie”
|(Wrestler - WWE/WWF; ECW)|
|Brian Heffron is a professional wrestler and actor better known as The Blue Meanie or Da Blue Guy. |
Heffron made his World Wrestling Federation debut on the November 22, 1998 episode of Sunday Night Heat. He spent some time in the WWF 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. In a memorable moment, Bluedust caused Goldust to lose to Gillberg, a parody character of WCW’s top star Goldberg in February 1999, giving Gillberg his first victory. Bluedust and Goldust were pitted against one another at WWF’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” of sorts, calling him “mommy.” He would serve as a manager for Goldust, where he bickered with Goldust’s other manager, Ryan Shamrock. After Goldust dumped both Meanie and Shamrock, Heffron would make little headway in the WWF and left shortly thereafter.
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 Heffron later that evening, which Heffron won following interference from Stevie Richards (his Steel Chair Shot to the head gave JBL a bleeding wound), a Spinebuster from World Heavyweight Champion Batista, and Heffron’s Moonsault finishing move. The Mexicools then defeated the trio in a six-man tag match at The Great American Bash on July 24 in Buffalo, New York. The indication was that Heffron was only brought into the WWE and given a victory over JBL so that he would not sue the WWE.
