History: (Last Updated: 3/04/2006)

My history on "Mean" Mike Enos is pretty scarce, but so far, this is the best I could do. Enos first wrestled as one of the Skyscrapers, a short-lived tag-team. There is also a chance that Enos tagged with Wayne Bloom as the masked Russian Assassins in the NWA, but this is unconfirmed. He then joined Bloom as the Destruction Crew in the AWA. The two ran rampant on that organization, becoming one of the big tag-teams there. In September '89, they injured Ken Paterna of the Olympians, the tag-team that had held the AWA World Tag-Team Titles. Due to the injury, Paterna and Brad Rheingans were forced to vacate the titles. In the following tournament, the Destruction Crew took out Paul Diamond and Greg Gagne in the Finals to earn the titles. They retained the titles until August '90, when they lost to the Trooper and D.J. Peterson. During this time, Enos also ventured briefly to the NWA/WCW, where, as the Masked Skyscraper, teamed with "Mean" Mark Callous (the Undertaker) in the Skyscrapers. The team did not last, though, and Enos went back to the AWA. Unfortunately, the Destruction Crew were not able to regain the AWA Tag Titles, since the AWA closed the following year.

After the collapse of the AWA, Enos and Bloom went to the WWF along with other members of the defunct Fed. The two became the Beverly Brothers, Beau and Blake, two blond-haired "brothers" who wrestled well together. Although the two earned numerous title shots, they never managed to haul in the WWF Tag-Team Titles. They did, however, have a long-standing feud with the Bushwhackers, as well as other tag-teams. The two were managed by The Genius (Lanny Poffo, the brother of Randy Savage). For a while, the Beverly Brothers were one of the most-despised tag-teams in the WWF.

In '93, the Beverly Brothers left the WWF and roamed the various independent wrestling federations for a few years. In late '96, Enos came to WCW, originally debuting as the Mauler. He later changed to his real name, Mike Enos, and teamed some with Dick Slater as Rough & Ready. However, the team did not get any heat, so the two split up, and Enos began teaming with Wayne Bloom again. The two, as the Minnesota Wrecking Crew, tried to pull themselves up the tag-team ladder in WCW, but never managed to get past teams like Harlem Heat or the Steiner Brothers. When the tag-team division in WCW broke down, Wayne Bloom was released from the federation, putting Enos, for the first time in a long time, mainly into the singles bracket.

Enos seemed to grow into the role of a singles wrestler, as he started getting some heat from the crowd. He had some major battles with some of the superstars of WCW, and, if he had not been arrogent enough to pull the man off the mat during a pin, would have had a few upsets under his belt. Enos also competed in the February '99 Tag-Team Title tournament, with Bobby Duncum, Jr, as his partner. The team wrestled a lot, but were unable to make it to the Finals. Enos then began falling into the dark recesses of WCW again, and apparently never made his way back out. He retired in 2000, leaving the wrestling business behind.
