Frazier broke into the WWE in 1993 as part of the tag team Men on a Mission where he appeared under the moniker Mabel and teamed up with Mo as a rapping duo who wore bright purple and gold tights and were managed by a man by the name of Oscar. Mabel eventually turned heel and received a big push in 1995 as a bad guy.
After a stint on the independent scene, Frazier returned to the WWE in 1999 and was eventually "abducted" by the Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness--a stable in which Frazier became a key member.
After he departed WWE for a second time in 2000, he resurfaced in TNA and again appeared on the independent circuit before returning for his final stint in the WWE and eventually he wrestled under the monikers "Big Vis" and "Big Daddy V."
Frazier, who celebrated his 43rd birthday just four days before his death on Tuesday, was a WWE tag team champion, a WWE hardcore champion and the 1995 King of the Ring tournament winner.
