Fred Ottman worked with the World Wrestling Federation under the names Tugboat and Typhoon. He would often team up with fellow wrestler Earthquake to form The Natural Disasters in the early 90s. One of the things that Tugboat is most well-known for is the “Shockmaster incident” in 1993, during which he embarrassingly tried to make a huge entrance by crashing through a wall and things took a turn for the worse. The wrestler tripped over a piece of lumber and fell through the wall – but not in the way that he wanted to.
These days, the former pro spends most of his time coaching his sons’ little league teams in Florida, where he moved when he retired. He also apparently still holds a blue-collar job, working as a safety manager for an industrial cleaning company. The father and uncle reportedly as a net worth of around $300,000. He has appeared in a few of the WWE games, including the 2K18 version, which shows a modified version of the Shockmaster.

Chyna, born Joan Marie Laurer, began her pro wrestling career back in the 90s. She was an instant hit in the industry, and officials dubbed her the “9th wonder of the world.” Joan was the first woman in history to take part in a Royal Rumble, as well as the “King of the Ring.” But her fame went a little beyond just wrestling…
Unlike many other female WWE stars who are approached to do adult photos or film and turn them down, Chyna said yes. The entertainer posed for Playboy magazine twice. She also released an autobiography and appeared on numerous television shows, including the "Howard Stern Show" and a celebrity version of "Fear Factor." Laurer passed away in 2016 from an overdose.

Ken Shamrock is widely hailed as one of the biggest names in MMA history, and for good reason. Shamrock first started in the professional fighting world in 1992, making him one of the ultimate veterans of pro wrestling. He made his WWF debut in 1997 after fighting with the UFC and several other wrestling organizations over the years. ABC News referred to him as the “most dangerous man in the world,” due to him being so talented in many different styles of combat.
Shamrock is married to his 2nd wife, Tonya, who had three children when the couple tied the knot. He had four children with his first wife, Tina, and now has seven in total. He has appeared in a number of WWE video games, along with an episode of "That 70’s Show" and the film "Virtuosity" in 1995. The athlete is currently still wrestling on the independent circuit.

Dennis Knight was working as a bouncer in Florida when he was discovered by Steve Keirn. He adopted the name Ted Slazenger and jumped in the ring not long after. Knight worked for the WWE for several decades until his ultimate retirement in 2006.
Once he was done with wrestling, he headed back to his home state and worked his Steve Keirn’s training academy showing other young hopefuls the ropes. Afterward, he got a job as a chef and tried to maintain a “normal” life for himself. Anyone who is a Mideon fan can probably score an autograph if they catch him in a good mood at his restaurant.
