              Charles Scaggs made his pro wrestling debut in 1985. He wrestled in various independent promotions in the United States, until with the recommendation of Big Van Vader, he decided to go to New Japan Pro Wrestling. He would also wrestle in Europe and Mexico.

              [edit] World Championship Wrestling (1992–1994)

              He debuted in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as Ron Simmons' mystery partner at Clash of the Champions XXI on November 18, 1992. He also had a brief reign as World Tag Team Champion with Marcus Bagwell in October 1993.[2] Although he was released in 1994, Scorpio competed on the WCW-promoted pay-per-view AAA When Worlds Collide, and the WCW joint produced pay-per-view Kollision in Korea in 1994 and 1995 respectively.

              [edit] Extreme Championship Wrestling (1994–1996)

              Scaggs debuted in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in 1994, where he had four reigns as World Television Champion and one reign as World Tag Team Champion with The Sandman.[2] During his simultaneous reign as Television and Tag Team Champion, he insisted on being referred to as 2 Gold Scorpio. He had feuds with wrestlers such as Taz, Shane Douglas, Sabu, and Mikey Whipwreck.

              Scorpio lost a memorable match to Taz in which he was jumped afterwards by Doug Furnas and Lance Wright's bodyguard, Brakus. Taz came out to make the save and gave a memorable speech afterwards. "I don't do this a lot. I ain't never heard of anybody named Flash Funk but I know someone named 2 Cold Scorpio and tonight 2 Cold Scorpio showed up. The wrestler, the athlete, the superstar I admire. Now brother I'm done blowing smoke up your ass and don't go off on me either, but if you want to wrestle for a real promotion you're welcome in my locker room." Taz raised his arm and left the ring as they played 2 Cold's music and he danced. On June 10, 2005, Scorpio wrestled at the ECW reunion event Hardcore Homecoming, defeating Kid Kash.[3][4]

              [edit] World Wrestling Federation (1996–1999)

              Scaggs made his WWF debut on November 17 at Survivor Series under the name Flash Funk. During his time there, his gimmick involved dancing, wearing a zoot suit, and being accompanied to the ring by his "Fly Girls" or "Funkettes" (years before the WWF would debut an admitted pimp, The Godfather, who was accompanied by his "hoes").[5] He later reverted to the Scorpio name teaming with WCW teammate and friend Ron Simmons as well as Terry Funk through most of 1998. He would soon after become a member of Al Snow's J.O.B. Squad, but it wasn't a success. In late 1998, Flash Funk competed in the WWF's Brawl for All tournament, replacing Ken Shamrock. He lost in the quarterfinals to The Godfather, however. In early 1999, Scorpio requested time off due to personal problems, but was instead released.[5]

              [edit] Pro Wrestling Noah (2000–2006)

              After being released from the WWF, Scaggs made sporadic appearances for Extreme Championship Wrestling, which included a challenge against then champion Mike Awesome for the World Heavyweight Championship on the December 10, 1999 edition of ECW on TNN. Scorpio would compete for All Japan Pro Wrestling until native members of its roster defected to form Pro Wrestling Noah in 2000, and both Scorpio and Vader also joined Noah. During his tenure in Noah, he won the GHC Openweight Hardcore Championship, as well as the GHC Tag Team Championship with both Vader and Doug Williams.[2]

              [edit] World Wrestling Entertainment (2006–2007)

              In 2006, it was reported that Scaggs signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment. Upon joining the promotion, he returned to using his Flash Funk character in the WWE developmental promotion Deep South Wrestling until he was released on May 11, 2007 without ever making a return to television.[6] On the 15th anniversary of WWE Raw on December 10, 2007, Scaggs, as Flash Funk, participated in a battle royal where he eliminated Steve Blackman while simultaneously eliminating himself in the process.

              [edit] Booker T's Pro Wrestling Alliance (2007–present)

              In late 2007, Scaggs became a member of his friend, Booker T's, Pro Wrestling Alliance promotion based in Houston, Texas. He has wrestled occasionally when the company has had shows in Pasadena, Texas at the city's convention center, including participating in a feud with heel wrestler and student Gustavo Mendoza. His last match was in February at "Texas Tapout" against Chris "The Pride" Adams. On August 8, 2009, in Charlotte, NC, 2 Cold Scorpio beat Phil Shatter for the NWA National Title.
