10 Superstars you didn't know were in ECW
#9 Doink the Clown
Doink the Clown has been portrayed by multiple wrestlers over the years, but most famously by Matt Bourne. After entertaining audiences from 1992 to 1995, Bourne appeared on the independent circuit and ended up for a few matches in ECW.
Shane Douglas who was the ECW Champion at the time used Doink as a motivator to criticise Vince McMahon for ruining a talent like Bourne, reducing him to comedy and face paint, and encouraged him to fulfill his full potential. Ditching the clown gimmick for a more serious persona, Bourne would dress his defeated opponents in clown accessories to humiliate them.
