The kung fu flick that originated of the name stems from a revenge flick titled Avenging Boxer (小子命大, 1979), also known as Method Man / The Fearless Young Boxer starring Peter Chang (張繼龍) as the main protagonist, and a South Korean TKD dynamo named Casanova Wong (卡薩伐) as the bad guy who killed his father. According to urban legend, the rapper known as Method Man became the youngest member of the Wu after Cappadonna lost his spot due to serving time in prison. The RZA supposedly gave Meth the moniker because method is a slang for weed and as y’all know Iron Lung smoked a lot of it.
