The following year, Blackman joined Ken Shamrock in his efforts to combat the Nation of Domination. Eventually Blackman broke out on his own, establishing his trademark entrance involving swinging glow-in-the-dark eskrima sticks before walking to the ring.

Head Cheese (1999-2000)

Blackman and Al Snow formed a tag team that was known unofficially as Head Cheese, as Snow made Blackman wear a cheesehead hat to complement the mannequin head that Snow carried to the ring. Blackman had a reputation for being very serious and not displaying emotion, so the two put on comedy duo skits with Blackman as the straight-faced man. Many of the skits involved Snow's attempts to come up with a gimmick for their team. In one backstage scene, Snow proposed that the duo develop a TV show wherein they travel through time and solve mysteries. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Hardcore division (2000-2002)

After the Head Cheese team went their separate ways, Blackman entered the WWF's Hardcore Division. At the time, the title was defended 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (established by Crash Holly). Because of this, WWF often ran story lines wherein the champion was attacked and defeated in locations not typically associated with wrestling matches, such as backstage or in a hotel. However, with Blackman as champion, surprise attacks no longer resulted in title changes: within the storyline, Blackman was so dangerous in hand-to-hand combat that surprise attacks were not effective enough to defeat him. During his stint as Hardcore Champion, Blackman's full martial arts talent was utilized. At Summerslam 2000, Blackman fought Shane McMahon for the title. During that match, Blackman took a 30-foot leap off of the Titantron onto a prone McMahon below.

Early in 2001, Blackman formed another tag team, this time with Brian Lawler, who was wrestling as Grandmaster Sexay. Blackman again played the straight-faced man: a recurring element was that Sexay would always try to convince Blackman to dance with him after their matches. In the summer of 2001, Lawler was released from his WWF contract, and Blackman was left without a storyline. At around the same time, Blackman suffered an injury, and was released in October 2002.
