What's His Deal: He's an over-the-top caricature of the Ultimate Warrior. How does one parody the Ultimate Warrior? Well, basically, he pretty much did all the crazy things Warrior did - coin words, harken to nature, type out grunts and spits - but did them with such comedic force and with slightly more frequency (remember, Warrior was kind of a caricature of a wrestler himself) that made it just a hoot every time he posted a promo.
Was He Successful in E-Feds: In terms of titles? I'm not sure, but I can tell you there was no comedic character more critically acclaimed than Power Master in the FWC circuit. NONE I SAY YOU.
Could He Get Over in Reality: Here's the thing, there have been a few Warrior knock-offs, but have there ever been any Warrior parodies? Not that I know of, not even anything in the vein of the Huckster and the Nacho Man, the mean-spirited caricatures trotted out in the mid-'90s to battle against the surging WCW at the time. So this might be something novel, well, it would have been in an earlier time, or now in a fed that caters to a slightly older crowd... like Chikara?
But for the right audience, and especially with Gregg writing or even portraying the character, I have no doubt that it'd get over huge. Some of the stuff that he wrote for PM was side-splittingly, gut-bustingly, "I need to take a drink of water before I die laughing like the weasels from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" funny. I think it might even work to an audience that didn't know who Warrior was, even if in either situation, it'd have a limited shelf life.
