According to Ring Side News, former Attitude Era star and WWE Tag Team Champion Nelson Frazier, Jr.—or how most people remember him by: his ring names, (King) Mabel, Viscera and Big Daddy V—may return at WrestleMania XXVIII in some capacity.
Frazier was scheduled to wrestle for the Wild Out Wrestling promotion on March 31 (a day before WrestleMania) for its Betrayed event. His match was set to be a tag team match along with teammate Kamala, Jr. Here's the official statement:
Former WWE Superstar Big Daddy V (Nelson Frazier Jr.) was scheduled for the Wild Out Wrestling promotion's "Betrayed" event on March 31st at the Giant Flea Market in Union City, Tennessee. The former WWE King of the Ring was set to take part in a multi-man match with Kamala Jr. - Team Kamala vs. Team Showtime.
Kamala Jr. announced last night on Facebook that the event has been moved from March 31st to April 14th due to Big Daddy V being booked by WWE.
A source very close to Big Daddy V reports that WWE has him booked and he will indeed be at WrestleMania 28.
I was never a big Viscera fan, nor was I a Big Daddy V fan either, but it's always nice to see an unexpected return. It will be interesting to see at what capacity Frazier is returning for. Maybe he will be a member of either Team Laurinaitis or Team Long in their 12-man tag team match at WrestleMania.
It would make sense for him to be a part of Team Long, as Team Laurinaitis has a big man in Mark Henry, so him being on Team Long could even it out, as he is also a big man. However, Frazier has been a heel for most of his career, so joining Team Laurinaitis would make sense as well.
Are you excited that Frazier (Viscera / Big Daddy V) is returning?
**SPOILERS to this week's SmackDown; you have been warned**
As it stands, both Team Laurinaitis and Team Long have five participants:
Team Laurinaitis: "Captain" David Otunga, Mark Henry, Christian, Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger
Team Long: "Captain" Santino Marella, R-Truth, Kofi Kingston, The Great Khali and Zack Ryder
As you can see, there is one spot open on each team that he could potentially take if in fact he is returning for this match, but of course, this is all speculation on my part, as I personally believe the injured Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio will take the last two spots of Team Laurinaitis and Team Long, respectively.
