Nunzio ECW #3 Action Figure-$12.99 USD
James Maritato (born March 12, 1972) better known by the ring names Little Guido Maritato and Nunzio, is an Italian American professional wrestler currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment wrestling on its ECW brand.
While attending Nanuet High School (located in Rockland County, New York), Maritato competed in football (as part of the school's 1989 State Champion team that went undefeated, untied, and unscored upon) and wrestling. He was later trained as a professional by Billy Robinson, debuting in the professional ranks in the early 1990s. Maritato then went to Japan to compete in the shoot style UWF International promotion.
In June when the ECW brand was launched, Nunzio left SmackDown! to join other "ECW originals" on ECW, retaking his Little Guido name in the process. The F.B.I. was revived again, this time with Little Guido as a face once again, along side Tony Mamaluke and Trinity. The F.B.I. have been used for tag matches in ECW to either take on debuting tag teams or facing another tag team when a tag match is needed. At December to Dismember, The F.B.I. took on Elijah Burke and Sylvester Terkay in a losing effort. His partner Tony Mamaluke was released on January 18, leaving Guido and Trinity alone to carry on the stable.
After Tony Mamaluke’s release, Little Guido vanished from television. Only appearing once on ECW brand television (with the Little Guido name). After his hiatus, he later returned on the April 17, 2007 episode (in Italy, where he was well received by fans) using his old Nunzio name again but without Trinity. He has begun to make more appearences on Sci-Fi though usually without a full entrance. His most recent losing efforts came against Kevin Thorn and on the June 19 edition he lost to the debuting Johnny Nitro. His name has changed from Little Guido Maritato to Nunzio on the ECW website. He would lose once again to the debuting Mike Mizanin on the July 10 edition of ECW.
