Driven to the brink of insanity by his time in WWE as Leif Cassidy, Al Snow found comfort in the form of a disembodied mannequin head. Simply named Head, the inanimate object supposedly spoke to Snow and inconceivably helped him become one of the most popular stars in ECW’s history.
The ECW faithful were firmly behind the unstable competitor as he pursued the ECW World Championship. They flocked to arenas with white Styrofoam heads in hand, shaking them in time to Snow’s thumping entrance music. When the mad grappler entered the ring, the fans tossed their heads at the squared circle, creating a “Snow” storm of Styrofoam before the bell rang.
Although Snow was unsuccessful against ECW Champion Shane Douglas at WrestlePalooza 1998, he now had a passionate group of fans that followed him when he rejoined WWE that summer. — BOBBY MELOK
