I started in the wrestling business in 1991, and was trained by Dean
Malenko's dad, "The Great" Professor Boris Malenko. "Big
Business" did something very unique in getting The Great Malenko to
train him as a manager. I still remember to this day The Great Malenko
saying, "Biz, I just don't train managers; I train wrestlers, but
there is something special about you."
Graduates of Malenko's school who were trained around the same time frame:
Kane (WWF), Prince Iukai (former WCW), Dean Malenko (WWF).
I was brought into this business by Lanny "The Genius" Poffo and
still remain friends with him, his brother, the "Macho Man"
Randy Savage, and his parents Angelo and Judy.
The only person I can claim that I actually brought into the business is
my brother "Sterling" Nico. When he first started, he was known
as "Knuckled" Knoel Brown, but he quickly picked up on the
"Sterling" title because he says it's a reflection of his great
personality. He is my best friend, and to this day we remain the only
managing brothers in the USA.
PROMOTIONS: The first promotion I worked for was the SWF
(Sunshine Wrestling Federation), in Sarasota, FL at the Manatee County
Civic Center. I have worked for the following promotions since 1992:
ICWA: Independent Championship Wrestling Association, Tampa, FL.
The last wrestling company to work at the Tampa Sportatorium
FWF: When the Florida Wrestling Federation first started, I managed
"Outlaw" Cody Wade, Vern Henderson, Louis Rodriguez, and many
FWA: In Stuart, Florida, I managed Lanny "The Genius"
USWA: United States Wrestling Association from 1994 thru 1996. I
managed Tommy "Wildfire" Rich, Doug Gilbert, Eddie Gilbert,
Brian Christopher, Spellbinder, and worked with Bill Dundee, PG-13, and
Jerry "The King" Lawler.
CPWA: Did weekend shows for the Colorado Professional Wrestling
Association, in conjunction with NWA Nashville & Jerry Lawler in 1998.
The shows were held at the Skysox Stadium in Colorado Springs, CO.
NWA: Nashville & NWA Georgia under the promotion of Bert
Prentice and Bill Behrens.
FSPWA: Florida State Professional Wrestling Association
EXPECTATIONS: I'm currently working with Jon
Force's New FWF with plans to return to NWA Georgia as soon as my bro and
I can find the time to squeeze in some return trips to Georgia. Damn those
car rides are L-O-N-G. I've also worked for numerous other promotions but
DAMNED if I can remember all of them; most of them are in the south:
Florida, Georgia, Tennessee. Almost 10 years in the business will
produce a big lack of memory in remembering all those acronyms, hmmm . . .
kinda like the computer business :-)
Recently both "Big Business" and "Sterling" Nico have
been doing more wrestling than managing . . . the finishing move for
"Big Business" is the "Big Business Write Off."
FAVORITE THINGS: Working with "Da Boys," and yes, I still
love the traveling part. :-) Managing wrestlers to gold and making lots of
BIGGEST DISLIKES: Being called "Weasel," stupid fans,
ignorant women and bad smells.
FAVORITE SAYING: Favorite saying: "I've got two
words for you - SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND KEEP QUIET"
