Stephen Paul Keirn (born September 10, 1951) is an American retired professional wrestler. He is a graduate of Port Tampa's

Robinson High School. He is best known for his appearances in multiple National Wrestling Alliance territories as one-half

of the tag team The Fabulous Ones, as well as his appearances with the World Wrestling Federation under the ring name 

Skinner.



In the summer of 1991, Keirn debuted in the WWF as Skinner, an alligator hunter from the Florida Everglades.He was portrayed

as a generally nasty individual, always chewing on tobacco and sometimes spitting it on his opponent. He carried an 

alligator claw to the ring with him, which he would often use as a weapon against his opponents. He competed in the 1991 

King of the Ring tournament, defeating Virgil in the first round but losing to Bret Hart in the second round.While 

still being billed as undefeated, he challenged Hart for the WWF Intercontinental Championship at This Tuesday in Texas 

on December 3, 1991 but lost by submission.Skinner competed in the 1992 Royal Rumble, lasting 2:13 before being 

eliminated by Rick Martel. At WrestleMania VIII, he was defeated in one minute and eleven seconds by Owen Hart.

Keirn competed in the 1993 Royal Rumble but was eliminated by Mr. Perfect at the 3:05 mark. While in the WWF, Keirn 

also portrayed Doink the Clown on occasion. At WrestleMania IX, Keirn helped the original Doink defeat Crush by 

attacking Crush dressed as Doink during the match.Keirn left the WWF in April 1993. 


Since the late 1980s, Keirn has run a school to train wrestlers. Originally located in Tampa, Florida, Keirn's 

"Professional Wrestling School of Hard Knocks" is now located in Brandon, Florida.Keirn helped train many wrestlers, 

including Mike Awesome, Dennis Knight, Joe "Destiny" Clapp, Diamond Dallas Page, Dustin Rhodes and Tracy Smothers.

The school was incorporated into the WWE's developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling where Keirn was 

President of the FCW and made regular appearances on FCW television. In 2013 FCW was discontinued after the opening 

of the WWE Performance Center.
