He is a former ECW World Tag Team Champion, WCW World Tag Team Champion, WCW World Television Champion, WWF European Champion and WWF Hardcore Champion.



Perry Saturn Wrestled during the historic "Monday Night Wars" and was viewed on weekly television by millions of fans. Perry Saturn made his first appearance on the silver screen in the film Ready To Rumble.



In April of 2004, Perry Saturn was involved in an altercation with two men when he came to the aid of a woman that they were in the process of raping. He fought the men and was shot with a .25 caliber handgun in the back of the neck as a result of the scuffle. After being shot, Saturn became addicted to methamphetamine and was homeless for two and a half years. He disappeared from public view and was not seen for several years, with his family and friends unaware of his whereabouts. In 2010 Saturn re-emerged, having resolved his addiction but now dealing with chronic brain injuries that limits his abilities.
