History: Scott Norton first made himself well-known with his arms. A former World Arm Wrestling Champion, Norton got the nickname Flash by winning matches quickly. He became a wrestler in 1988, mostly wrestling in the NWA Pacific Northwest. In May 1990, Norton won the NWA PNW Heavyweight Title from Brian Adams. He was later forced to vacate the title due to his attacks on other wrestlers.

Norton truly became well-known when he began wrestling in Japan. He became a main attraction, with his brute strength and surprising speed. In November 1992, he teamed with Tony Halme to win the I.W.G.P. Tag Team Championship, defeating the Steiner Brothers. Less than a month later, they were defeated by the Hell Raisers. After some more singles wrestling, Norton teamed up with Hercules Hernandez to form the Jurassic Powers. The team won the Tag-Team belts from the Hell Raisers in August 1993, and held them for about 5 months before the Hell Raisers took the belts back. Norton wrestled in Japan for another couple of years, but did not obtain any more gold there.

In 1995, Norton came to WCW. He teamed with Ice Train, but the two never managed to get any gold there. When the nWo was formed, Norton immediately joined, leaving Ice Train behind. Norton became one of the structural builders of nWo, being credited with the formation of nWo Japan. He also teamed with Marcus "Buff" Bagwell numerous times as Vicious 'N' Delicious, until Bagwell's neck was injured in 1998. Norton then became simply a singles wrestler, destroying opponents with the powerbomb. Despite his dominating strength and skills, however, Norton did not receive much of a push in WCW. Norton then started to wrestle for nWo Japan again.

In September '98, Norton surprised some, winning the IWGP World Title over Yuji Nagata, when it was vacated by Masahiro Chono. Norton retained the belt for over 3 months before losing it to Keiji Mutoh (The Great Muta) at the beginning of '99 at the Tokyo Dome. Norton proved himself worthy of greater things, but still returned to WCW as a Team "B" member of the black 'n' white, appearing infrequently alongside Stevie Ray and the rest. The Monster had a brief feud with Ernest "The Cat" Miller, usually coming into the ring and destroying the 3-time karate champion. Although the feud got him some recognition, Norton wasn't moving anywhere. When the nWo "B" Team finally fell apart around the middle of '99, Norton disappeared from WCW.

Norton then returned to his old stomping grounds at New Japan Pro Wrestling, trying to build his way back up to the IWGP World Heavyweight Title. He defeated Kensuke Sasaki in March '01 to reach his goal, winning the strap for the second time. After a month's reign, Norton was beaten for the championship by Kazuyuki Fujita. He now looks to regain the belt for a third time in the future, earning far more acclaim in Japan than he ever did in WCW.
