Inducted into the WWE hall of fame in 2009, Koko started his wrestling career in 1978 and rose to fame in the late ’80s and ’90s. He began as part of  the wrestling tag team duo High Energy as well as a solo competitor. He became a fan favorite when he made his entrances to the ring, he  would enter with Morris Day and The Time‘s “The Bird”,  flapping his arms while carrying his bird “Frankie.” Koko brought nothing but high energy and fun during his time in the WWF making him a fan favorite.
