Gene Snitsky―later just known to the WWE Universe as Snitsky―was a football player before training to become a wrestler. He played college ball at the University of Missouri and ultimately made the roster of the CFL's Birmingham Barracudas.

Snitsky was signed by WWE in late 2003 following a try-out match. After developing in Ohio Valley Wrestling, Snitsky made his main roster debut in September 2004 in a match against Kane. This match would lead into the whole "it wasn't my fault" catch-phrase for Snitsky.

The Snitsky character would ultimately evolve so that the cameras and announcers not only emphasized Snitsky's massive size, but also his yellowed teeth. Former WWE commentator Tazz referred to Snitsky as "deranged" and notes that he is "not stable." As with Sullivan, Snitsky was not huge on body-hair maintenance and his theme song also has startling, unmelodic noises.
