Jason Arhndt (October 15, 1971) is an American former professional wrestler, best known for his work in World Wrestling Entertainment, as part of the three man team known as the Mean Street Posse. Working under the ring name Joey Abs, he made his WWF debut on the June 21, 1999 episode of Raw is War. He achieved little success, usually acting as a jobber, and was released from the WWF in early 2001.
Arhndt began his career as a member of Matt and Jeff Hardy's O.M.E.G.A. or the Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts in Cameron, North Carolina.
He worked as "enhancement talent" for the WWF in the mid-1990s. Towards the end of his run with the company, in 1996, he managed to defeat Stone Cold Steve Austin in a handicap match.
In early 1999, he joined WWF as part of the Mean Street Posse, a heel stable, clad in sweater vests and dress pants. They started off as a group from Greenwich, Connecticut of about ten people in early 1999, but then as the year went on the stable whittled its way down to three members. The group was closely allied with Shane McMahon, often helping him defend the WWE European Championship throughout early 1999. Pete Gas and Rodney were legitimate school friends of Shane McMahon, whereas Joey Abs was a wrestler brought in to be the worker of the group. At WrestleMania 2000, each member won the WWF Hardcore Championship for a short while. Abs also became the first person in the WWF to be slapped by Stephanie McMahon.
All three Posse members were briefly signed to the WWF developmental territory of Memphis Championship Wrestling, before being released from their contracts. After they split up in 2000, Abs went to Ohio Valley Wrestling and had a somewhat successful run before being released. He now goes under the name Venom.
In their magazine commemorating the 15th anniversary of Raw, WWE listed Abs as one of "15 superstars who overstayed their welcome."
