visceraNelson Frazier Jr is one of the few people in WWE who can claim to have more faces than Mick Foley.

He originally joined the WWE in 1993 as Mabel. He was part of group known as “Men on a Mission” along with his tag team partner Mo and their rapping manager Oscar. They were billed as men from the inner city that were trying to make a positive portrayal of their neighbourhood.

At Wrestlemania X they defeated The Quebecers but did not win the Tag Team titles belts, however they did The next month at a house show in London. This reign lasted only two days as they lost them at a another live event in Sheffield.

It was after Mabel and Mo attacked Oscar and turned heel that Mabel got his first big push. At the 1995 King of the Ring tournament he defeated The Undertaker and Savio Vega to become King Mabel. He then went to challenge Diesel for the WWE Championship at Summerslam in a losing effort.

Mabel then became embroiled in a feud with The Undertaker. Aligning himself with Yokozuna they attacked him until he had to we war a protective mask. This culminated in a casket match at ‘In Your House 5’, which Mabel lost.

Mabel’s last appearance came at the 1996 Royal Rumble.

It was three years later at the same event that Frazier returned as Mabel. On the the show he was kidnapped by The Acolytes and brain washed by The Undertaker into becoming a part of his Ministry of Darkness and rechristened Viscera.

Viscera adopted a more Gothic look by dying his mohawk white and whitening his eyes with contact lenses. He acted mainly as a bodyguard to the group.

After the group split in in the summer of 1999, he competed mainly in the hardcore division and had a short feud with Mark Henry after attacked the platters girlfriend, Mae Young.

Frazier was released from his contract again in August 2000.

He was brought back in 2004 as part of a storyline involving The Undertaker and JBL, who was bringing back members of the ministry to soften up their former leader before their title match.

However, during a feud between Lita, Kane, Trish Stratus and himself that his gimmick started to change to that of “The World’s Largest Love Machine” which would lead him to turn face.

He would form a team with Val Venis and strive for the affections of Lilian Garcia, up until the point where she agreed to marry him. Only for the Godfather to turn up and convince him to stay single because of his hoes.

In June 2007, Frazier was sent to the new ECW brand. Just a few weeks later he redebuted as Big Daddy V, he was once again a bodyguard, this time to Matt Striker who needed someone to take out The Boogeyman.

After this he compete in an Elimination Chase in which he won and became the number one contender to CM Punk’s ECW Championship at No Mercy. He once again lost a title match, this due to interference by Striker.

In the 2008 Supplemental draft he was sent to Smackdown, but before he had a chance to wrestle on the show he was released from his contract.
