In wrestling terms, he's a little guy, but Little Spike Dudley has not let that get in the way of his career in ECW. Far from becoming the runt of the Dudley clan, which includes Buh Buh Ray Dudley, D Von Dudley, Dudley Dudley and Big Dick Dudley among numerous others (aparrently Mr. Dudley was a very busy man), Little Spike has risen to the rank of Commissioner in ECW. Not bad for a midgit wearing tie-dye.
The seeds of Spike Dudley's fame were sown in his fued with his "half brothers" Buh Buh Ray and D Von, who are now working for the evil Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Federation. It culminated in a table match, but come on, this was Extreme championship Wrestling, and it was one of their biggest pay per views, Heatwave '98. Not just any table match would do.
No, instead, the Dudleys competed in a flaming table match, which culminated in Little Spike being powerbombed through a burning table by Buh Buh Ray.
But Spike hasn't always been on the losing end of matches. With a stroke of luck comparable only to Crash Holly in WWF two years after the flaming table match (and who stole the Acid Drop, Spike's finisher, on Smackdown a few weeks ago), Spike climbed the ladder in Extreme Chapionship Wrestling, defeating such monsters as Rhino, Mike Awesome and every one of his Dudley brothers. Earning himself the nickname of The Giant Killer (a title that WWF stole and used for X Pac back in his face days), Spike rose through the ranks of ECW to become the commissioner.
Yes, that's right. After years of having their ideas nicked by WWF, ECW responded in kind with Spike becoming the force in charge of maintaining order in ECW. Order in ECW!? That's not gonna work. He just hits people with the Acid Drop in the middle of matches. Ah hell, it's ECW, it doesn't have to make sense...
