Charles Wright, the man better known as The Godfather, is set to appear on an upcoming episode of the Broken Skull Sessions.
While there is no confirmation on when the episode will air, the WWE Hall of Famer appeared to confirm the appearance on Instagram.
After brief stints in the USWA and a tour of Japan with New Japan Pro Wrestling, Wight joined WWE in 1991. Following a series of minor appearances, Wright debuted as Papa Shango in early 1992. While Wright enjoyed a high profile feud with the Ultimate Warrior, the character was dropped in 1993.
The Las Vegas native returned to WWE in 1994 and continued to appear sporadically under the guise of Kama “The Supreme Fighting Machine.” However, it wasn’t until he joined the Nation of Domination in 1997 that Wright landed another high-profile role.
After The Nation imploded, Wright transformed into The Godfather. A pimp, famous for appearing alongside his ‘ho’s.’ Wright later turned his back on his fan-favourite character joining the Right To Censor. While the group later fell apart, Wright triumphantly returned at the 2002 Royal Rumble complete with a lengthy line of female companions. However, The Godfather left WWE once again at the end of the year.
Although Wight never returned on a permanent basis again, he became a recurring comedy character. Godfather appeared at the RAW Reunion in July of 2019, before appearing at Undertaker’s retirement ceremony at Survivor Series 2020.
During his time with WWE, Wright won the Intercontinental Championship, as well as becoming a tag team champion in 2000.
Charles Wright was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016.
