WrestleMania's Main Event Wiki
Advertisement


Sidney Raymond Eudy (born December 16, 1960) is an American actor, softball player and retired professional wrestler. He is best known under the ring names Sid Vicious, Sid Justice, Sycho Sid, or simply Sid, and for his tenures in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Between those promotions, Eudy has enjoyed major championship success and performed to an international television audience in three decades from the 1980s to the early 2000s.

Background

Pre-WrestleMania

At a Superstars taping on May 28, 1991, Eudy would make his WWF debut in an untelevised segment that saw him clear the ring of The Mountie following Mountie's open challenge for a brawl. He faced Ted DiBiase in his first WWF match at a non-televised event on July 8, where Sid won.

On the June 8 episode of Prime Time Wrestling, vignettes began airing promoting his WWF debut, in which he was introduced as Sid Justice and was featured as glaring or smiling at the camera.

On the July 20 episode of Superstars, Eudy debuted on WWF television. He was announced as the special guest referee for the main event of that year's SummerSlam, where The Ultimate Warrior and the WWF Champion Hulk Hogan teamed up against The Triangle of Terror (Sgt. Slaughter, Col. Mustafa, and Gen. Adnan) in a 3-on-2 handicap match. Later that night, Sid saved Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth from an attack at the hands of Jake Roberts and The Undertaker at the newly wed couple's reception.

WrestleMania 13 (1997)

At In Your House 13, Bret Hart last eliminated The Undertaker in a Four Corners Elimination match to win the vacant WWE Championship. Hart's reign, however, lasted only one day as he lost the title the next night on Monday Night Raw to Sycho Sid after interference by Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Due to being the runner-up to the title at Final Four, Undertaker was made the number one contender and was booked to challenge Sycho Sid for the title at WrestleMania. However, on the March 17 edition of Raw Is War, Sid defended the title against Hart in a steel cage match, with the winner defending his title at WrestleMania. During the match, both Undertaker and Austin interfered. Undertaker came out to help Sid because he wanted to wrestle Sid for the title while Austin helped Hart because he wanted to make his scheduled submission match with Hart a title match. Sid won the match and retained his title and as a result, Sid vs. Undertaker remained the main event of WrestleMania.
