Freddie Prinze Jr. Praises The Godfather As His Favorite Attitude Era Gimmick


Former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. has praised Charles Wright’s portrayal of ‘The Godfather’ as a personal highlight of the Attitude Era.

Speaking on a recent edition of his “Wrestling with Freddie” podcast, the Scooby Doo actor said the Godfather was his favorite Attitude Era character and remembered the gimmick fondly. He said,


“[The Godfather] was a full-on pimp. Dressed like a pimp, walked like a pimp, came out with what they called a ‘Ho Train’ … It had an engine, it had a dining car, it had the passenger cars, and it had a girl with a big ol’ caboose in the back.

“He would cut promos about selling women for sex, and smoking weed, and selling weed,” Prinze said. “And I’d be watching this like, ‘How is this not getting bleeped left and right?’ Then the next week he was on TV, then the next week, and it lasted a long ass time. And the Ho Train came with him every time.”

Prior to playing The Godfather, Wright portrayed witch doctor Papa Shango and ‘ultimate fighter’ Kama. He would later portray The Goodfather in the Right to Censor.
