Charlie Skaggs (Flash Funk)Charlie Skaggs — Charlie Skaggs is his real name, Flash Funk is just a ring name that shouldn't be in the title. Per discussion on WP:PW «»bd(talk stalk) 01:42, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Support I actually think it should be moved back to 2 Cold Scorpio, but Charlie Skaggs is better than Charlie Skaggs (Flash Funk). TJ Spyke 02:18, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support That's his real name, and since he is well known by two different ring names, he should be at his real name. "(Flash Funk)" isn't necessary - Who's gonna type it in the search as "Charlie Skaggs (Flash Funk)"? I mean seriously. --James Duggan 04:18, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
    • I wouldn't say he's well known as Flash Funk. The gimmick bombed the first time, and he hasn't used on TV again yet. TJ Spyke 04:44, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support At the very least, get rid of the Flash Funk part of the title. He's a special case in that he's now in the WWF, where he used the Flash Funk moniker more than 2 Cold Scorpio (or just Scorpio), but it's by far not his most well known ring name, and likely never will be. He used 2 Cold Scorpio for a majority of his career in his WCW, ECW and Japan runs. I still think it should just be changed to 2 Cold Scorpio, regardless of what name he will take when he makes on-screen appearances in WWE. Booshakla 18:01, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Support I support this mainly per same as above. I think it should actually be moved back to Charles Skaggs, but I'll compromise on Charlie Skaggs. The (Flash Funk) is confusing and I believe is against Wikipedia guidelines for the proper name of an article. Seeing as he has used the Flash Funk name less frequently than the 2 Cold Scorpio name, it definitely should not take precedence in titling this article. It would be appropriate to have both Flash Funk and 2 Cold Scorpio redirect to an article titled with his real name. D2001dstanley 02:21, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

  • Hmm, maybe it should be at Charles Skaggs? That wa the original name of the article before it was moved to 2 Cold Scorpio. TJ Spyke 05:31, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Requested move (May 2007)[edit]

  • Charlie Skaggs2 Cold Scorpio —(Discuss)— This is the name Skaggs has used fairly continuously since 1985. There is some debate over the correct spelling of his real name - some sources say Skaggs, whereas his erstwhile employer uses Scaggs. [1] A Google search returns 27,400 results for "2 Cold Scorpio" compared to 349 for "Charlie Skaggs". McPhail 21:29, 16 May 2007 (UTC) —McPhail 21:29, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Support as nominator. McPhail 21:29, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

This article has been renamed from Charlie Skaggs to 2 Cold Scorpio as the result of a move request.

Orphaned references in 2 Cold Scorpio[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of 2 Cold Scorpio's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "HardcoreHallofFame":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 05:15, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
