X-Pac - the bastard named birthed from 2 influences; the X from DeGeneration X, and Pac taken from one of the most notorious and rebellious pop culture icons of the 1990's, the late hip hop artist 2pac Shakur. You could say that Sean Waltman's wrestling persona 'grew up' quickly during the span of 5 years. Waltman gained mainstream stardom as courageous yet dumb, barefaced, vulnerable virgin the 123 Kid. His wrestling moveset was influenced by a Light Heavyweight genre that was seen mostly in Japan and Mexico. The genre was brought to the US forefront when the 123 Kid got his shot with the WWF. 123 Kid was quick on his feet, left fans in amazement with his high flying foreign style, his suprising victories, however Kid was still that - a Kid; as it was evident in his wrestling matches as he would eventually fall prey to bigger opponents who would pick up on Kid's repetitive moves which they quickly learned to counter.
Waltman would show up in WCW 3 years later, sporting a beard and long, uncombed unwashed hair and using a new name, Syxx. Syxx wasn't the scrawny dumbass anymore. Syxx's wrestling matured, he incorporated a little more mat wrestling and had an obnoxious, flamboyant style.
Waltman returned to the WWF in 1998 using the name, X-Pac. Waltman's wrestling style evolved once again incorporating a fusion of high flying, dirty tactics, and flawless martial art strikes. X-Pac had become a little more urban in his character, and those characteristics would emerge into his wrestling moves. X-Pac brought with him from WCW his signature bronco buster; a provocative maneuver used to humiliate his opponents. X-Pac's finishing maneauver - the X-Factor was a variation of the face buster. The move was executed as X-Pac would jump down in a seating position on the mat while his scummy hands drove the opponent's head face first down on the mat in the space between legs which were spread open like he was forcing the opponent in a certain oral position.
