- sein erstes WWF-Gimmick "Virgil" bekam er von Vince McMahon Ende der 80er verliehen, um den damaligen WCW Booker Dusty Rhodes - dessen wirklicher Vorname Virgil ist - zu verhöhnen. Teil der Verhöhnung war ebenfalls, dass Jones als "Sklave" des Million Dollar Man auftrat, was metaphorisch in etwa das darstellt, wie Vince McMahon die Beziehung zwischen seiner WWF und der konkurrierenden WCW zu der Zeit sah. Jahre später, als Jones zur WCW wechselte und Dusty dort (mal wieder) die Booking-Verantwortung hatte, bekam er den Gimmick-Namen "Vincent" verliehen, als Verhöhnung natürlich von Vince McMahon. Wieder einige Jahre später, ca. 1999, bekam Jones dann schließlich von Vince Russo noch den Gimmick-Namen "Shane" als Parodie des mittlerweile ebenfalls vor den Kameras agierenden Sohnes von Vince McMahon

[4.0] "Okay well virgil was horrible in the ring with his 5 move moveset. He had no charisma or promo-skills. but i will always remember him for being Ted Dibiases servant and that was a good gimmick but after all that things kind of blew and he became boring."

[6.0] "I don't think Virgil is as bad as everybody thinks he is. Sure he may not be the best worker, and yes he may have been made to look like a complete joke when he was in WCW, but I think there are some positives about Virgil and they all stem from his time in WWF in the late 80's and the early 90's. He may have lacked charisma a little bit, but I would say that he cuts some pretty good to decent promos in WWF when he was a face. But more important than all of that, any time he was paired up with Ted DiBiase whether it was with him or against him, it was the best thing that ever happened to Virgil in his career because when he was with DiBiase, he did great in his role being the bodyguard for him and I always thought they were a great pairing, and when he turned face and was against DiBiase, every time they faced off in the ring, Virgil had good agility and he had enough abilities for Ted to make him look like a better performer than he was and that says a lot!"
