The Goon was played in the image of a hockey player who was so violent that no league wanted him. In July 20, 1996, the character made its debut. The persona only lasted a few months and rode into oblivion. In 2001 it made a comeback in a WWF special event then went into hiding again. 6 years later, during the 15th anniversary of Monday Night Raw, the Goon appeared in a Battle Royal.
