The Beginning / ECW / OVW
WWE Raw: 2004 / 2005
WWE Smackdown: 2005 / 2006


The Beginning

If nothing else, you can say the career of Michael Bucci has been entertaining. Throughout his career, Bucci has been part of several gimmicks, most notably during his time in Extreme Championship Wrestling. After over a decade in the business, it's about time the man was given a shot at success in World Wrestling Entertainment.

Bucci started out with other career possibilities, earning a college degree in Mathematics. But Michael was interested in something more, and went with a friend at the age of 19 to a wrestling school, learning the basics of the craft. Bucci trained under "Iron" Mike Sharpe, one of the most well-known trainers in the business. In 1991, Michael began his in-ring career, competing regularly around the indy circuit. He worked hard, earning a reputation for being a great "creative" wrestler, that is, adding new moves to his repetoire on a regular basis. It took years, but Bucci was finally noticed by one of the Big Three, and headed to Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1996.

ECW

Bucci debuted in ECW as the 'superhero' known as Super Nova. He wrestled his first major match in the company at Hostile City Showdown '96, where he took on El Puerto Ricano in the opening contest. Unfortunately for Super Nova, the match ended badly, as, after Nova got a superkick on Ricano, the Eliminators (Kronus & Saturn), wanting to take out some rage after an earlier brawl with the Gangstas, came to the ring and took out both men, ending the match in the No-Contest. This was Super Nova's last major event for a while, as he would work on building his craft for the next year. Super Nova's fortunes began to change when he joined Raven's Nest (the precursor to Raven's Flock in WCW). Super Nova soon was regularly with the Blue Meanie, as well as Stevie Richards, as they mostly focused on helping Raven get wins over his competition.

However, as time went on, Super Nova, Stevie Richards, and the Blue Meanie all broke away from the Nest, opting to try to work on their own. This led to one of the funniest bits in ECW's history, as the trio formed the Blue World Order, a parody of WCW's nWo. Super Nova became known as "Hollywood" Nova, in 'tribute' of "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan, while his partners became "Little Stevie Cool" (a likeness of Kevin Nash) and Da Blue Guy (a likeness of Scott Hall).

When Richards later returned to Raven's side, Super Nova & the Blue Meanie stayed as a 'super' tag-team, having various feuds with the other teams in ECW throughout 1998. The two made a good pairing, although they were never able to gain the ECW Tag Titles. At the end of '98, the Blue Meanie jumped to the WWF, leaving Super Nova without a tag-team partner. This didn't last long, as Super Nova began regularly teaming up with Chris Chetti. This led to a change in character, as Super Nova no longer had a wild and crazy partner like the Blue Meanie. He eventually shortened his name to Nova, removing his make-up and cape to become a serious competitor. Nova continued to team with Chetti throughout '99 and into '00, while also joining up for a team with another ECW wrestler, Kid Kash.

In August '00, it was announced that a tournament would be held for the ECW World Tag-Team Titles. Nova & Chetti seemed to be the favorites going into the tournament, but Chetti's mind didn't seem to be on business, and it ended up costing the team, as Nova & Chetti lost in the 1st round to Simon Diamond & Johnny Swinger. A night later, Nova came to the ring, apparently willing to forgive his partner. But Chetti didn't want forgiveness, instead attacking Nova with a chair and laying him out in the ring. After a short break to heal, Nova returned seeking revenge. The two men signed to fight at November To Remember '00, with Chetti requesting that it be a "Loser Leaves Town" match. Nova agreed, and the two went at it, with Chetti's manager, Lou E. Dangerously, interfering on Chetti's behalf. It wasn't enough, though, as Nova got an incredible Kryptonite Krunch from the middle turnbuckle to get the victory, sending Chetti out of ECW.

Nova's momentum seemed to be building after the victory, as he became a bigger star for ECW. Unfortunately, this wasn't a great time for that, as ECW was having serious money issues by this point. At Massacre on 34th Street in December '00, Hot Commodity (Julio Dinero, EZ Money, Electra, & Chris Hamrick) were beating down Balls Mahoney, after EZ Money had won via deceit. Nova ran down to make the save, attacking all 3 men. This quickly led to a match between Nova and Dinero, with Hot Commodity doing all they could to make the match go their way. But with Mahoney breaking up the group, Nova was able to get the win with a swanton bomb, pinning Dinero. Nova continued to feud with Hot Commodity going into 2001, mainly focusing on Hamrick. Nova debuted a new look at Guilty As Charged '01, in a match with Hamrick. The match took a strange turn when Chris Chetti returned, dressed in a referee uniform, and tried to call the match for Hamrick. But Spike Dudley came down to help take out Chetti, then made the count after Nova hit the Kryptonite Krunch on Hamrick for the win.

Sadly, this turned out to be the last pay-per-view for Extreme Championship Wrestling, ending the federation's run just as Nova seemed to be on his way to great things in the company. Despite being a major factor of ECW, Nova had to depart without having ever held a single title in the company.

OVW

For the next year or so, Nova wrestled on the independent scene, continuing to become a better wrestler. He also began to pick up more titles everywhere he went. Nova formed a successful tag-team with Frankie Kazarian, with the team winning the UPW Tag-Team Titles and the PCW Tag-Team Titles in a short time frame. In June '01, Nova also teamed with fellow ex-ECW wrestler Tommy Dreamer to win the Border City Wrestling Tag-Team Titles from Johnny Swinger & Fantasy. This gave Nova 3 new tag straps to his credit. Despite his success in the tag ranks, however, there were better things around the corner for the former ECW star. A few months into 2002, Nova signed a WWE developmental contract, and debuted shortly thereafter in Ohio Valley Wrestling. In no time at all, Nova was challenging for the OVW Heavyweight Title, and surprisingly defeated the Prototype (John Cena) for the belt in May '02.

Nova would go on to defend the title for almost 6 months, fending off many strong challengers, including Christian, Cena, and others. He also made a special appearance at the PCW Russ Haas Memorial Tag-Team Tournament, replacing Jamal as the partner of Russ's brother, Charlie. The two won the tournament, defeating Doug Basham & the Damaja (Danny Basham). Nova eventually lost the title in November '02 to the Damaja, and was unable to regain the belt despite several tries over the next few months. Nova then went back to tag-team wrestling, teaming up with Aaron Stevens, who became known as Idol. In October '03, while wrestling at a WWE house show, Nova & Idol managed to take down Adrenaline (Chris Cage & Tank Toland) for the OVW Southern Tag-Team Titles. Nova & Idol stayed the champs going into the new year, until Adrenaline was able to reclaim the belts at March Mayhem '04. Nova then spent the next few months in OVW without any gold, just waiting for his chance to shine.

WWE Raw: 2004

In October '04, vignettes began to air talking about the Simon System, a program designed to help people lose weight. The star of this program was a man called Simon Dean (Nova), who insulted the people he supposedly was trying to help. Dean made his first live appearance on Raw at the beginning of November '04, coming out and insulting several fans, including bringing one into the ring and eventually beating on him with a submission hold. The next week, Simon was at it again, this time getting a lady to drink a special mixture. The lady ended up throwing the glass in Simon's face, but Simon had the last laugh, dumping a gallon of the stuff onto her. A week later, Simon finally had a confronatation with a wrestler, Rosey. When Simon called him fat, Rosey attacked, taking care of one of Simon's "pupils". Simon came back, though, and hit Rosey in the head with a container full of "Simon System" powder before quickly leaving.

WWE Raw: 2005

Dean had a small feud going with Rosey for the next few weeks leading into 2005, usually with the duo getting after each other on the smaller Raw-based shows. On one Raw, Dean made another appearance, announcing that he had brought some new fat-burning pills to Florida, where, according to him, the beaches were so filled with fat people that they looked like beached whales. Dean then talked about how he was going to give a 'free sample' to a wrestler over 300 pounds who was known to wear a mask. This was obviously a reference to Rosey, yet instead Kane came out, to Dean's absolute fright. Kane took one of the fat-burning pills and ate it, only to spit it out. He then forced Dean to eat several of the pills, before getting Dean's weight belt to take it to him. He was set to chokeslam Dean when Gene Snitsky attacked (he was feuding with Kane at the time), saving Dean and letting the man run for it.

At the '05 Royal Rumble, Dean came down as #18. He seemed a little reluctant to enter, putting on his weight belt as well as his headphones. Dean's run in the Rumble was a relatively short one, as the next entrant, Shawn Michaels, was able to clothesline Dean over the top rope and to the floor. Batista went on to win the Rumble. Twenty-four hours later on Raw, Dean was given an Intercontinental Title shot against Shelton Benjamin, and almost made the most of it, getting a 2 count after nearly knocking Benjamin out by getting his gym bag in the way of a stinger splash. But Benjamin was too strong, pinning Dean after a spinning heel kick to the head. After the match, Dean tried to take some of Benjamin's credit, claiming that the reason the champ beat him was because Benjamin used the Simon System. Benjamin didn't take kindly to this, though, and came back, splashing Dean, then taking him out with the T-Bone Suplex.

In February '05, Dean went with the rest of the Raw roster to give the first broadcast of the show from Japan. Dean interrupted the Diva Fashion Show, promoting his Simon System to a new audience. He also insulted the emcee of the show, Jerry Lawler. Dean's speech was stopped rather suddenly, though, as Christy Hemme gave him a low blow from behind, taking him down. The Divas then danced around the ring before leaving Dean laying in pain. Seemingly as punishment for messing up the Divas show, Dean was placed in a match against Kane the next Raw. Dean, obviously terrified, talked about how, somehow, he would continue the Simon System for those who believed in him, and condemned those who didn't to be fat. Kane dominated Dean, even using his own weapons against him, before chokeslamming him for the victory.

Dean's losing streak continued a week later, as he was forced to submit to Chris Jericho. Dean attempted to escape the Walls of Jericho by crawling to his gym bag, but the referee quickly took the bag away, leaving Dean no choice but to tap. Dean then dropped back to Heat for the time being, usually losing his matches there as well. Going into March '05, Dean began teaming up with Maven, who had become a follower of the Simon System. The two men went repeatedly against the Raw Tag-Team Champions, William Regal & Tajiri, but couldn't manage to get the win, losing regularly to the champs despite multiple tries on both Heat and Raw.

On the first Raw of April '05, Dean & Maven came out for an infomerical, with Dean proclaiming Maven as the perfect specimen. Before they could finish, however, they were interrupted by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin! Austin got Dean to agree to a trade: if Dean drank some of Austin's beer, Austin would drink some of the protein shake. Dean agreed, and took a sip of the beer, spitting it on the floor. Dean then had to do some push-ups to get rid of the calories, much to Austin's disgust. Austin then tried the shake, but he spit it out as well, saying it was terrible. Maven, though, called it a man's drink, then slapped Dean on the back, which, unfortunately, sent the shake that Dean was holding into Austin! Stone Cold soon beat down both men, eventually giving both men a Stone Cold Stunner before departing.

The duo's troubles continued for the next month, as Dean & Maven regularly only appeared on Heat, if at all. They did make an appearance in the "Gauntlet" Match for the Raw Tag Titles at Backlash '05, but they were quickly beaten by the champs, Regal & Tajiri, when Dean took a shot to the head and was pinned. The SuperHeroes went on to win the Tag-Team Titles. This gave Dean & Maven someone new to face, and they tried to make the most of it, taking on the SuperHeroes on a mid-May '05 Raw. But the results were the same, as Rosey & the Hurricane won out, retaining the titles over the fitness gurus. In the coming months, Dean & Maven continued to try to move up in the rankings, with no success, eventually breaking apart.

In the meantime, an ECW revolution was taking place in WWE, with the brand making a comeback. A show was set up for June '05, entitled ECW One Night Stand. During the main event, which was between Tommy Dreamer & the Sandman and the Dudley Boyz, the blue World order suddenly appeared! Hollywood Nova stood with Da Blue Guy & Big Stevie Cool, with the group saying that they were taking over! The bWo then fought with first Dreamer & the Sandman, then with Kid Kash, Axl Rotten, & Balls Mahoney, with the group eventually brawling to the back. It was a nice moment for ECW fans, as they got to see Nova back in action, if only for a short time.

WWE Smackdown: 2005

At the end of June '05, it was announced that Simon Dean had been traded to Smackdown, leaving Raw behind. However, Dean's first appearance on Smackdown was something different, as, at the first Smackdown in July '05, he walked out as Nova, along with Richards & the Blue Meanie, to call out John Bradshaw Layfield! Richards introduced himself as John Blue Lamefield, with Nova being "Bashme" (referencing Layfield's ally, the Basham Brothers). Layfield, who had been one of the strongest anti-ECW wrestlers, jawed with Richards for a while, with the Blue Meanie challenging JBL to a match. Richards also spray-painted JBL's limo with "bWo", signifying their takeover plans. Later on, both Nova and Richards tried to help the Blue Meanie get the win, with JBL's ally, Orlando Jordan, also getting involved. In the end, though, it took Batista giving Layfield a Spinebuster, which allowed the Blue Meanie to get the pinfall upset, a big win for the bWo.

For the next month, Dean/Nova wrestled as two different individuals, wrestling as Dean on Velocity, while appearing as Nova with the bWo occassionally on Smackdown, and vice versa. On one night, Nova & the bWo defeated 3 Indy wrestlers on the Velocity tapings, with Dean later coming out during the Smackdown tapings to insult Booker T's wife, Sharmell (saying that she had gone to the buffet tables 5 times). Booker T quickly took out Dean, though, beating him into the mat and keeping him from getting two wins in one night. A the '05 Great American Bash, the blue World order took on the Mexicools (Juventud Guerrera, Psicosis, & Super Crazy), in an ECW style of a fast-paced match. While Nova did get to 'hulk' up at one point, the bWo still weren't strong enough, as Psicosis hit a Top-Rope Legdrop on Richards to take the win. The blue World order soon broke up again after the match (with the Blue Meanie leaving WWE), sending Dean back to concentrating on his Simon System again.

As summer moved into fall, Dean's wrestling luck did not improve, as he lost to many Smackdown wrestlers, such as Chris Benoit and Rey Mysterio. On the first September '05 Smackdown, Dean was placed in a "Non-Title" Match with the World Champion, Batista. Dean tried to claim credit for Batista's size and winning, saying that he was a firm member of the Simon System. Batista then came out and said he didn't remember ever using the system, but was willing to try it. He drank a shake and seemed to like it, with Dean celebrating behind him. Batista let Dean know that the drink made him feel stronger, as well as more aggressive! Batista then attacked Dean, easily destroying him (although he did need another drink of the shake to power back up at one point). It was not a good day to be Simon Dean.

Later on in September '05, Dean came out feeling more powerful than usual, having bulked up with the Simon System. He called out anyone from the back, and got answered by Bobby Lashley, who was making his debut. The huge Lashley easily took down Dean, defeating him with the Dominator. Dean didn't let things go, though, appearing on a later Smackdown to challenge the rookie to another match, this time at No Mercy '05. Dean was ultra cocky before the match, thinking that he'd be taking out Lashley. He even promised to eat 20 cheeseburgers if he lost! Dean had a plan in mind, as he used the metal plate holding the cheeseburgers to hit Lashley with. But it didn't even slow the big man down, as Lashley eventually took out Dean with the Dominator for the victory. Afterwards, Lashley made Dean eat one of the burgers, with Dean trying to escape on his Dean Machine. Lashley tracked him down backstage, though, and stuffed the burgers in his mouth, not even allowing Dean to avoid the 'calories' of the bread around the burgers. At the end, when Dean thought he was done, Lashley produced one more, causing Dean to run to the bathroom to throw up.

This was Dean's last significant appearance on PPV for the rest of the year, as he went back to routinely jobbing on Smackdown and Velocity. He did wrestle at the Eddie Guerrero Tribute Show, getting in some much-needed comic relief as Eugene defeated him, then stole the Dean Machine, wildly driving off while Dean looked on in shock. Dean eventually got the Dean Machine back, but continued to lose match after match. At the beginning of December '05, Dean faced off against another new wrestler, this time taking on the Boogeyman. While Dean didn't seem worried at first, when the Boogeyman's head appeared underneath a tray of food (complete with worms), Dean freaked out, not wanting to wrestle. He was eventually carried to the ring by security, where the Boogeyman, who was eating worms on the way to the ring, took Dean out with a front slam for the victory. Dean ended the year mostly on Velocity, where he did get a small winning streak going, beating wrestlers Caprice Coleman and Brian Kendrick.

WWE Smackdown: 2006

Dean's career took a new turn on the first Smackdown of '06, as he had an "Open Challenge" for two wrestlers on the show. Brian Kendrick & Paul London answered the call, only to have Dean reveal that they wouldn't be wrestling him, but his new protoges, the Gymini! The two big men (formerly known as the Shane Twins) came down to the ring and, with Dean cheering them on from the outside, destroyed Kendrick & London in an unofficial match, taking out both men. A week later, Dean participated in a 20-Man Battle Royal to decide the new WWE Smackdown World Heavyweight Champion (Batista had to vacate due to injury). Unfortunately, Dean didn't have the Gymini in the match, and he was soon thrown out, missing his chance to become champion. Kurt Angle won the Battle Royal, earning the title.

Dean worked more as a manager for the Gymini than a wrestler for the next few weeks, bringing a whistle with him to the ring to blow encouragement. He watched as the Gymini defeated Kendrick & London in their first match on Smackdown, then cheered them on to another win over two rookies on Velocity the next week. In the meantime, Dean managed to work his way into the '06 Royal Rumble, with the chance to earn a Wrestlemania Title shot. But Dean's luck was just as bad as always, as he entered in at #3 and had to face Rey Mysterio and Triple H. The Simon System again didn't succeed, as Dean ended up quickly outside the ring, courtesy of Mysterio.

Dean continued to manage the Gymini to wins on Velocity over the next month, although appearances on Smackdown were few and far between. Dean did appear in the Pre-Show Match for No Way Out '06 on Heat, but it was another loss, as he was taken down by the Boogeyman. Dean stayed unified with the Gymini, though, with the trio being part of the "Lumberjack" Match between Bobby Lashley & Finlay in March '06. Dean & the Gymini joined the other heels at going after Lashley and protecting Finlay, with Finlay eventually getting the cheap win to earn a spot in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match at Wrestlemania. Dean & the Gymini then got their own shot at it the next week in the "Last Chance Battle Royal". But Dean & the Gymini, despite the numbers, couldn't last, with Lashley earning the final spot. Dean then returned with the Gymini to Velocity. They did make an appearance at Wrestlemania 22, but it was wrestling in the Dark Match Battle Royal, which was won by Viscera.

The trio got no closer to success in April '06, with Dean wrestling occassionally on Velocity, including losing to newcomer Gunnar Scott (known as Brent Albright in OVW). Later that night, though, Dean had the satisfacation of seeing the Gymini on Smackdown, with Jesse & Jake defeating the Mexicools (Psicosis & Super Crazy) to finally gain some momentum. A week later, the Gymini won again, beating Paul Birchall & William Regal (although they were helped by Birchall leaving Regal in a 2-on-1 contest). A few weeks later, on the first May '06 Smackdown, the winning streak continued, as the Gymini took down Scotty Too Hotty & Funaki. Dean's team was really coming through, even if Dean himself was still having problems, losing a Velocity match the next week to Matt Hardy. But the Gymini found another way to win, beating two Indy wrestlers (Joey Ryan & Mike Wellington) for another convincing victory.

Neither Dean nor the Gymini wrestled at Judgment Day '06, but Dean did appear at the next Smackdown, taking on the recently-returned Tatanka. Dean made fun of Tatanka during the match, doing the Indian sounds with his hands and threatening to grab Tatanka's head dressing from where he had left it. But Dean's distraction allowed Tatanka to take over, chopping Dean down and eventually putting him way with his new finisher, the Wykea.
