5 WWE Superstars who were inspired by famous musicians
2: Johnny B. Badd - Little Richard
Though his name may be a play on the iconic Chuck Berry song Johnny B. Goode, the look and career of Johnny B. Badd is closely linked to the Little Richard.
Appearing in WCW, Badd was a solid mid-carder, and imitated Richard's flamboyant look, even leaving little kiss stickers on his opponents after matches.
A multiple time champion in the Atlanta-based promotion, Badd would have lengthy feuds with some of the company's biggest stars, including future WCW World Champion and Hall of Famer, DDP.
After years under the character, Badd would leave WCW to join the WWF in early 1996.
Debuting at WrestleMania 12 as the Wildman Marc Mero, Badd would come to the aid of his real-life wife at the time Sable, who was being harangued backstage by a young Triple H.Published 14 Apr 2019, 18:50 IST
