Why he might be annoying:

    His primary gimmick was that of Ted DiBiase‘s personal servant.
    The gimmick was seen as racist, due to the fact he was a man of color playing a servant to a rich white man.
    His trademark as a solo wrestler was wearing candy red striped tights.
    His popularity and screen time in the WWF dropped off considerably following his title loss to Bret Hart.
    He partook in a NWC match that used racially charged undertones, involving his character being lynched by another wrestler dressed in a Ku Klux Klan uniform.
    He came in and out of retirement multiple times at the turn of the century.
    He became relevant in the later years of his life, after a picture of him sitting at a table at a convention with no fans lining up went viral.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He was a defensive back on the football team at Virginia Union University.
    He earned a degree in mathematics from Virginia Union University.
    He worked at his uncle’s moving business and participated in bodybuilding competitions, prior to pursuing a career in professional wrestling.
    His character became a fan favorite after he broke away from the servant gimmick.
    He was tough enough to continue wrestling (albeit with a protective mask) after breaking his nose in a match.
    He had a brief successful run as a member of the NWO.
    He worked as a high school math teacher in the years following his retirement from wrestling.
