"The 35 Year Old Kid" Dave Baumcratz was a former Superuniverse Top 10 character based off of real life NWA New Jersey superfan Dave Baumcratz.
Dave Baumcratz was first mentioned on the debut of the Dennis of the Week segment on Episode 5. He was known as being a loyal superfan in the New Jersey and Philadelphia area who looked like a "kid" - big glasses, awkward personality, and a casual wardrobe that made him look younger than his years.
The debuting story for Dennis of the Week was also later told on the Jim Cornette Experience: in 1996, Dennis and Marc Coralluzzo were waiting outside of a Philadelphia hotel for Jim, who was in a production meeting at the time in a conference room - to go over the WWF Mind Games PPV the following night - with Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Jim Ross, and Bruce Prichard. Baumcratz was in the hotel bragging to everyone about how him and Shane McMahon are great friends, to which Dennis calls the hotel and they bring Dave to the phone, in which Marc Coralluzzo pretends to be Shane McMahon and asks Dave to bring a tray of sodas into the conference room where the production meeting is taking place and to just go right in. Dennis and Marc are able to see into the room's windows from the parking lot, where Baumcratz stumbles in with a tray of cokes and gushes that the sodas that they wanted were there, and leaves. Jim Cornette corroborates the story by saying that after Baumcratz left, Vince turned to Shane and growled "you're not gonna drink that...are you?"
Another story is mentioned on Episode 9, in where backstage at one of Dennis Coralluzzo's shows in late 1999, they decided to honor Dave Baumcratz by virtue of winning a ficticious online contest for a fake "NWA Fan of the Year" award, in which Dave got a picture of Mil Mascaras and himself given to him by Dennis and a fake Golga (revealed in Episode 5 as being Ricky O) backstage before the show.
