Before his arrival to the WWE, Chuck Palumbo was a big part of WCW during it's dying age. Palumbo was part of several "new breed", but Palumbo never got a huge push - mostly due in part to WCW dying before he could get one.
Palumbo and his tag team partner at the time, Sean O'Haire, were the last WCW Tag Team Champions before WCW was purchased. They carried the belts to the WWE when Vince McMahon bought the company. Palumbo and O'Haire defended the titles a few times against teams such as the APA, but lost them quickly to The Undertaker and Kane. While O'Haire disappeared, Chuck Palumbo stuck around. In the midst of the Invasion angle, Palumbo started to complain that he wasn't getting enough air time as opposed to other members of the Alliance. As a response, he was subsequently kicked out. He befriended Billy Gunn, who defended him. As a result of Gunn's friendship with Palumbo, the two became tag team partners and Palumbo was welcomed to the WWF with open arms.
Gunn and Palumbo started teaming as a generic team for several months. However, fans started to notice some bizarre changes to the duo as they progressed. Chuck's hair suddenly turned blonde and he was putting them into pigtails. Billy was bleaching his hair. The two were wearing pink. They were coming out to boy band music. They seemed very affectionate with each other. It seems as though these two friends turned into lovers.
Controversy arose when Billy suddenly proposed to Chuck. News stations and newspapers were covering the story about two gay characters having a marriage live on television. When the time arose, however, Billy and Chuck admitted that they were not homosexual and were just doing what they were doing for a publicity stunt.
A few years later, Chuck would return as a biker with his long, black hair grown out again and decked in leather. Will this Harley'd out Chuck make the cut for SmackDown vs. RAW 2009? Time will tell.
