The edgy, dark product that was gracing WWE TV in the mid-90s gave birth to a towel wearing, adult film character named Val Venis. The man behind that character was Sean Morley and the year 1999 would see a high-point for Val…as he won the Intercontinental title.
But celebration would be short lived as the parents' group trained their crosshairs on the risqué product and the "Right to Censor" angle was born. The porn star was gone, and the new clothes just didn't fit Morley or his aspirations. We go back to another year in the TIMELINE!!!
