Louie's debut was in early 1988 when he lost in a WWF TV taping in Duluth, Minnesota to veteran "Outlaw" Ron Bass. He'd mainly wrestle as a preliminary wrestler, or "TV jobber" for the WWF or Verne Gagne's AWA whenever they were in California, though with the years he became a regular WWF "TV wrestler" (meaning he was a regular preliminary in the federation's minor shows).

Biography

Louie Spicolli, born Louis Mucciolo, started to train at age 17 as a birthday present from his family. He was trained by Bill Anderson, who would later be one of his team partners in the Mercenarios Americanos (Amercian Mercenaries) team.

Louie's debut was in early 1988 when he lost in a WWF TV taping in Duluth, Minnesota to veteran "Outlaw" Ron Bass. He'd mainly wrestle as a preliminary wrestler, or "TV jobber" for the WWF or Verne Gagne's AWA whenever they were in California, though with the years he became a regular WWF "TV wrestler" (meaning he was a regular preliminary in the federation's minor shows).

He also wrestled in lucha style cards in California and Tijuana as a "gringo" heel, as he was especially trained for that style. He had some success in Tijuana's WWA as he became a two times trios champion.

His first actual push in a TV based promotion was in 1990 when a lunatic promoter called Herb Abrams started out his UWF promotion based out of California. Spicolli, now nicknamed "Cutie Pie" still had the role of a preliminarist, but he got interview time, etc., so they probably had some plans for him, though this promotion went nowhere as Mr. Abrams was an awful promoter (for the record, he quit his own life a few years ago while he was under the effects of hard drugs, and after kidnapping a woman and destroying the furniture of his office).

He kept wrestling for the WWF and many indies, including the Arizona based IWF, where he was recognized as the first champion (he was awarded the title on December 15, 1992). He also wrestled as Killer Blond or Louie Spicolli whenever Triple A was in California promoting shows, and he impressed Konnan and Antonio Peña, so in 1994 he started to wrestle in Mexico as well. Now he had a new name, Madonna's Boyfriend, and he was a cocky, dancing American rudo. Spicolli wasn't all that big, but in Mexico he was like a giant and he was an asset to the memorable Gringos Locos stable. He had an appearance for the legendary AAA/IWC When Worlds Collide PPV. Following Art Barr's untimely death, there was no point in continuing the Los Gringos Loco stable and Spicolli (along with Eddie Guerrero and Konnan) left AAA.

Shortly thereafter he joined the WWF where he had a low-card wrestler role as the grunge boy Rad Radford and was involved in an angle with The Bodydonnas team of Skip and Sunny. He left the WWF and signed with ECW where he was used in a better way and had a feud with one of the promotion's top guys, Tommy Dreamer. In late 1997 he signed with WCW via his old friend Scott Hall and had a minor push as a nWo member and lackey of Hall. He was given more mic time than ever and he was even used as a commentator for some shows.
