An Ode to 2 Cold Scorpio

An Ode to 2 Cold Scorpio

To celebrate the 52nd birthday of 2 Cold Scorpio, we look back on the career of a competitor who seemed to be everywhere in the '90s.

It doesn't matter if you know him as 2 Cold Scorpio or Flash Funk. If you were a fan of wrestling in the '90s, you knew who Charles Scaggs is. His high-flying style and natural charisma made him a fan favorite. However, not all was rainbows and lollipops for Scorpio. Between admitted drug use, repeated hits to the head, and characters that bordered on racist, many issues would keep Scorpio from reaching the heights he was capable of.

The dude worked everywhere

Throughout his career, Scorpio competed in ECW, WCW, WWF/WWE, TNA, and even in Japan. He saw action everywhere in the world, and delighted fans with his version of the 450 splash, which he was an innovator of, and tons of other top rope maneuvers. While he sometimes dressed as a pimp, or in blue spandex with aluminum foil lighting, he was the highlight of every show.
