Blackman wrestled a few matches in the World Wrestling Federation in 1988 & 1989, where he defeated David Sammartino in his WWF debut match.
He was about to get signed to a full-time WWF contract, but he contracted malaria and dysentery, and was bedridden for 2 years.
Years later, Blackman made his way back to the WWF, during the famous Attitude Era. He wrestled in the company from 1997 to 2002.
During his time in Vince McMahon’s promotion, he held the Hardcore Title 6 times and holds the record for the most combined days as WWF Hardcore Champion: 172 days.
