OSWPOTD: "The Model" Rick Martel
It was in late 1989 when Rick Martel was re-packaged as "The Model." He came close to winning the Intercontinental title in 1993 after winning a battle royal to fight for the vacant belt. He lost to Razor Ramon.
He wrestled for a year in WCW, winning the World TV Title in 1998 from Booker T during their feud. His tenure was cut short due to an injury.
