    Rey Mysterio - I had to double check the eliminations, but he tied HHH in 2006 with 6 eliminations, when he won the Rumble.

    And the wrestler was Perro Aguayo Jr., who unfortunately died after Rey drop kicked him setting up the 619.

    Wow, that is 2 contests in a row where 2 people fit the answer.....and especially this one, where it involved a wrestler's death in the ring.

    EDIT:

    The Great Khali... the wrestler who died was Brian Ong, and he died after Khali hit him with a flapjack after Ong already had a concussion.

    Yeah it's Khali,

    I could pinpoint that clue 1 suggests only one person made the most eliminations...

    "1. During one rumble, I eliminated the most people."

    I, and no one else, which would disqualify Rey as an answer, but it's a small detail.

    Powder's up.

    OK...I see your point, but since some of my past clues have been ambiguous, I have tended to be more specific.

    Here we go:

    1. During my first stint with WCW, I made my debut at a Starrcade with my trainer as my partner in a tag team tournament.
    2. I only wrestled 9 matches for the WWF, but during my time in the WWF, and those 9 matches I had 4 different gimmicks, but for my last and most well known gimmick I never actually wrestled a match.
    3. During my second and prominent run in WCW, I was part of 6 different stables in 6 years!

    I had several runs in WWF and WCW, but never won a title.
    Surprisingly, I have a strong PPV record, with my only losses being in multi man matches.
    There might still be a hand imprint on my back.

    My most famous finishing move was a half nelson with a leg hook.

    I thought it was him because of the Self Pat on the Back that he always did. But I cannot remember him in WCW.

    I also just checked. How does he have a strong PPV record? He has 5 total matches, with 1 win and 4 losses.

    EDIT: I looked further into this, and Horowitz's 1 win came in 1995 in a Dark Match at WWF In Your House 5, Season's Beating; where He, Hakushi, and the Smoking Guns beat The Body Donnas, Isaac Yankem and Yokozuna.

    So where is the strong PPV record?

    You're forgetting SummerSlam 1995. And I said he only lost in multiman matches (Survivor Series, Rumble, World War 3...)

    Let's try this.

    1) I wrestled more than a hundred matches for NJPW.
    2) In the US, I am probably best known for a stint in the 1990s.
    3) I once lost to a future UFC Champion.

    4) I had a tattoo unlikely to ever feature on Superstar Ink.

    Greg Valentine. No one remembers him as WWF Champion because the victory was mired in controversy.

    Yeah, I can see that one working. Owen also potentially works, if the quotes around "held" are significant.

    I did not beat the former champion for my lone singles title in the WWF, but my partner and I did for my lone Tag Title reign.
    You could say that I was a pioneer in the wrestling business, significantly ahead of my time.
    My 'family member' was also in WCW and TNA.

    My name doesn't reflect my most known gimmick at all.
    International news influenced my character significantly.
    I was inducted into "a" Hall of Fame in 2007

    Sgt. Slaughter?

    Robert Remus, his real name, does not reflect his gimmick.
    He changed his gimmick/turned is back on the USA in 1990-1991 to be an Iraqi sympathizer at the height of the Gulf War.
    No idea on the Hall of Fame

    Not him either

    But I'll clarify (instead of adding a 4th clue)
    - My wrestling gimmick name doesn't reflect my most well known gimmick.
    - International news influenced my offense (as in opposite of defense, not as in offensive content, though that was often part of my success)
    - Inducted into a HoF, but it's likely a HoF you didn't even know existed. And there 18 other inductees.

    John Laurenitis (spelling?)

    Johnny Ace no connection to his Talent Relations/RAW commissioner role and you could argue that People Power was influenced my offense and gimmick.

    My best guess is Sandman, and if that's not right, I don't have a clue what it could be.

    The 'Singapore Cane' may be hitting on the right international news, but if the Singapore cane is correct then it would have to be Tommy Dreamer b/c his gimmick name was supposed to be pretty boy, but he was a Hardcore legend.

    I don't see how that works, because his gimmick name is the best known one. But then I don't see how Sandman works with that off the top of my head, either. But I have it in my head that Sandman may have worked a kind of surfer gimmick before they dialled up the hardcore shit.

    I think you are correct. Sandman did debut as a surfer...but again I am with you n how the names relate or do not relate for that matter.

    And double checking, Sandman was inducted into the 'Hardcore HOF' in 2007, and there are only 18 others...so it all fits.
