Al Snow’s original two year run in WWE saw him compete under numerous forgettable gimmicks such as Avatar and Shinobi. He got his first break as one half of ‘The New Rockers@ with Marty Jannetty.

It wasn’t he left to join ECW that he started to enjoy real success with his ‘Head’ gimmick, it was from this that he was brought back to WWE in 1998.

During his second stint with WWE Snow had several memorable feuds with the likes of the Big Boss Man which involved his supposedly pet dog Pepper, and also his real life friend Mick Foley.

He also formed a popular tag-team with Steve Blackman called Head Cheese and had a memorable run as European Champion in which he mimicked a different stereotype of a European country each week.

Snow had many championship reigns as Hardcore Champion, but his last came when he lost the title to Tough enough series one winner Maven. He starred as a trainer on the show and eventually took up the role full-time at WWE’s former development territory Ohio Valley Wrestling. After WWE ended their partnership with OVW, Snow was released from the company.
