Born Perry Arthur Satullo on October 25th 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio
Not much has been written about his early life.
He joined the US army at the age of 17. He would serve for 4 years and is a graduate of the US Army Ranger School.
Before becoming a full time wrestler he did earn a bachelors degree.
Satullo trained at Killer Kowalksi’s school starting around 1998 where he went under the ring name Saturn after the Roman god before later tweaking it to Perry Saturn.
He made his in-ring debut on October 27th, 1990 in Waltham Massachusetts wresting for the United States Wrestling Association.
He also wrestled in Kowalksi’s International Wrestling Federation as “The Iron Horeseman”
He eventually won the IWF lightweight championship.
Perry would go on to wrestle in independent promotions throughout New England as well as touring with New Japan in 1993.
He would make his WWE debut as a jobber in 1992.
He would then start tagging with George Caiazzo after meeting him while working together at a nightclub in Boston. Caiazzo would wrestle under the name John Cronus, the Greek equivalent to Saturn.
Ciazzo wanted to be named “The Harvesters of Sorrow” as they are botht he gods of the harvest but Jerry Lawler that name was too smart for the average crowd and gave them the name The Elimiators.
The Eliminators worked their first match together for the USWA in 1993.
On March 22, 1994 Perry Saturn would wrestle in a dark match for a WWF Superstars Taping
They would win the Tag Team Championship on May 2, 1994, holding it untl June 13.
The tag team managed to catch the eye of Paul Heyman and were brought in to job to the Steiner Brothers in ECW.
They would sign on with ECW in 1995 and go on a run in the tag team division.
They would hold the Tag Team belt 3 times between 1996 and 1997.
Around this time is when Saturn would be involved in a shoot where he would get his hair cut and ended up shaving his head to be more like Woody Harrelson’s character in Natural Born Killers, Mickey Knox. In reality he was starting to go bald.
Satullo was a trainer in the ECW House of Hardcore, a professional wrestling school at which Taz and Mikey Whipwreck also taught. Saturn was respected for his focus and drive on fundamentals and technical wrestling.
On May 31, 1997 in Trenton, New Jersey, Satullo tore his ACL when he landed on a crutch while executing a kick on Big Dick Dudley.
He would return to action in August but did not want to reform the eliminators sighting the work ethic of Caiazzo.
Heyman would offer him his release which he would take and join WCW.
He debuted in WCW on September 8, facing Billy Kidman, but was sidelined for a month afterwards as his knee had still not entirely healed.
Later that year, both Saturn and Kidman would go on to join Raven’s Flock.
The enforcer of The Flock, Saturn would win gold on November 3, 1997 when he defeated Disco Inferno to win the World Television Championship. He held the title for a month before losing it back to Inferno in a rematch.
On September 13 at Fall Brawl, Saturn defeated Raven with help from Kidman, disbanding The Flock forever
After the breakup of the Flock, He would go on to feud with Chris Jericho. During this feud is when he would take on the goth appearance, often wearing dresses to the ring with Manson’s beautiful people playing.
This gimmick would go on until March 14, 1999 when he would lose a dog collar match to Jericho at Uncensored.
He would then once again begin teaming with the Raven and they would go on to win the WCW World Tag Team Championship.
After Raven was injured, Saturn would lose the belts to Bam Bam Bigelow and DDP when Chris Canyon, who replaced Raven, betrayed him.
He would then go on to team with Chris Beniot and would win the titles back.
This would be the catalyst to form the revolution with Shane Douglas and Dean Malenko.
WCW booker Kevin Sullivan believed that Saturn was incapable of getting over with the fans so he was released at which time he, Benoit, Malenko Eddie Guerrero were all granted their release and signed with WWE in January of 2000.
The Radicalz, as they were known, debuted on WWE TV on Jan 31, 2000 at Raw, earning a contract after taking out Cactus Jack to aid the McMahon-Helmsley Faction.
They would stay together for a while before they would all head off in their own directions.
Saturn would move to the Hardcore division where he would feud with then champion Hardcore Holly.
The Radicalz would reform in late 2000 to battle the revived D-Generation X, defeating them at Survivor series.
After a match in which he legitimately attacked jobber Mike Bell, Saturn immediately underwent a significant gimmick change and, possibly as punishment for his actions, was involved in storylines about his becoming infatuated with a mop.
This lead to a face turn after fans fell in love with the love affair with Moppy.
In April, 2002 he injured his ACL again, sidelining him for four months.
He would reappear in TNA on March 26, 200.
He would team with Sandman forming a short-lived stable known as Team Extreme along with Justin Credible and New Jack,
He would leave NWA-TNA on June 18, 2003 after defeating Kenzo Suzuki by DQ.
He would go Indy until retiring in 2004 due to injuries.
Satullo was involved in an April 2004 altercation with two men when he came to the aid of a woman that they were in the process of raping. He fought the men and was shot with a .25 caliber handgun in the back of the neck and in the right shoulder, to which he originally thought he had received a punch, as a result of the scuffle. After being shot, Satullo became addicted to methamphetamine and was homeless for two and a half years. Satullo disappeared from public view and was not seen for several years, with his family and friends unaware of his whereabouts. Satullo re-emerged in 2010, having resolved his addiction.
During an interview with Bill Apter in September 2016, Satullo revealed that he was dealing with a “traumatic brain injury” that limited his abilities. In November 2016, The Boston Globe reported that Satullo had joined a class action lawsuit against WWE, litigated by Konstantine Kyros, who has been involved in a number of other lawsuits against them, alleging that “he is suffering from multiple symptoms of repetitive traumatic brain injuries and is undergoing neurological care.”
