Sid Eudy is not so much known for his wrestling ability as for his misadventures outside the ring. Sid is an extremely keen softball player and has been known in the past to take mysterious leaves of absence in order to play softball, sometimes during major feuds.
He is also famed for two extremely unusual fights with other wrestlers. In 1991, while he was working for the WWF, he bumped into WCW wrestler Brian Pillman. The two exchanged words and Pillman eventually challenged Sid to a fight. Sid left the bar and returned some minutes later threatening Pillman while brandishing a squeegee. He was duly laughed at by the entire bar. Fellow wrestler Mike Graham wrestled the squeegee from Sid and Sid backed down, claiming he didn't want to re-injure a bicep he had torn recently.
In 1993, Sid was working with WCW and just two weeks away from winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship at Starrcade '93, when during a tour in England, he had an argument in a hotel bar with Arn Anderson. Sid later went up to Anderson's hotel room to settle the argument, which he did by (allegedly) hitting Anderson over the head with a hotel chair when he answered the door. Sid then brawled with Anderson inside the room and ended up stabbing Anderson over 20 times with a pair of safety scissors . Anderson was rushed to hospital and survived the incident, while Sid lost his World Title shot (which was given to Ric Flair instead) and was later fired after several wrestlers threatened to walk out if he wasn't. Sid has since apologised to Anderson for the incident and the pair are on speaking terms today.
During the main event of the 2001 WCW Pay-Per-View Sin , Sid slipped off the ropes and broke his left leg so badly (he suffered a double compound fracture) that, as of 2004, he is still walking with a cane and is therefore in semi-retirement. However, in July 2004, he worked a match for an independent promotion in Canada.
