• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran Stevie Richards (Real name: Michael Manna) turns 48 today.
Richards made a name for himself in Eastern Championship Wrestling / Extreme Championship Wrestling from 1994 till 1997, where he was a member of Raven’s stable ‘Raven’s Nest’ and more importantly a member of the bWo, the ‘Blue World Order’, a parody of WCW’s nWo New World Order faction.
He wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1997, again as a member of Raven’s faction, which was now called ‘Raven’s Flock’.
In 1999, Vince McMahon signed Richards to a World Wrestling Federation contract as a full time main roster wrestler, and Stevie ended up staying with the promotion for 9 years till 2008.
Easily the most memorable storyline he was involved in during his time in the WWF (later renamed WWE) was in 2000 & 2001 when he called himself “Steven Richards” and became the leader of his own faction ‘Right to Censor’.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVIE RICHARDS!
