  • Drozdov is quadriplegic due to a neck injury sustained from a failed wrestling maneuver, but has regained most of the use of his upper body and arms. His hiring interview with Vince McMahon was featured in the 1999 documentary Beyond the Mat.
  • Darren Drozdov, (April 7, 1969) is an essayist, former NFL player and retired professional wrestler who competed in the World Wrestling Federation in 1998 and 1999 under the ring names Puke and Droz. Drozdov is currently quadriplegic due to a neck injury sustained from a failed wrestling maneuver. He was featured in the documentary Beyond the Mat in 1999; his hiring interview with Vince McMahon was a key scene of the film. Darren as a 6' 3", 245 lbs quarterback in high school, threw a 72-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Lou Rothman to win the last game of the 1985 regular season to finish the season with a perfect 10-0 record. Drozdov set an Atlantic County record in Track and Field in the shotput event. He was All-State in Football at Oakcrest High School in South Jersey. After a stint at Fork Union Military Academy, he attended University of Maryland and was a defensive tackle for the Terps. He culminated his collegiate career by graduating with a B.S. in Criminal justice. Before his wrestling career, Drozdov was a professional football player for a few seasons with the NFL's New York Jets and Denver Broncos. He gained some notoriety (and the nickname "Puke") when he vomited on TV during a Monday Night Football game. A 1993 Sports Illustrated article stated that he had vomited at nearly every game that season and would reportedly see a psychiatrist for a "chronic vomiting" problem. Apparently, many in the football industry found his antics bizarre and appalling. This "off-the-wall" attitude was given a spot in the World Wrestling Federation.
