• Old School WWF Manager Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Manager Clarence Mason (Real name: Herman Stevens Jr.) celebrates his 57th birthday today.
Clarence Mason joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1995 as Jim Cornette’s on-screen lawyer, used as a legal counsel, whenever any Camp Cornette members needed him.
From August 1996 onwards Mason left Camp Cornette and became a manager on his own, managing the likes of Crush, The British Bulldog & Owen Hart and The Nation of Domination.
He left the WWF in the summer of 1997, after NOD leader Faarooq fired him from The Nation, but later showed up in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he became known as “J. Biggs”, the manager of the short-lived Tag Team Harlem Heat 2000.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLARENCE MASON!
