Vince McMahon rejected the ‘stupid’ undertaker’s idea
The Undertaker is a legend in the world of professional wrestling, having dedicated more than three decades of his life to the business. He was a mainstay during the ’90s in WWE and competed against several major stars including Bret Hart and many more. Undertaker’s WWE plans for 2021 have just been revealed.
During the latest episode of his Something To Wrestle podcast, Bruce Prichard spoke about WWE In Your House 6. During the conversation, Bruce Prichard revealed a canceled idea involving Kevin Nash and The Undertaker on In Your House 6.
The idea in question was eventually canceled due to the fact that it was “too dumb” to be a thing.
“I thought the game was a good game. Go back and watch it and it’s a decent match. They were telling a story. When you get to that story at the end, it was to get to the Undertaker story, now it will keep this Diesel one. That was the history of this party. What we didn’t do was actually Kevin Nash’s idea that I was so looking forward to, and I actually remember coming back with Vince and doing a second pitch, is that once the Undertaker pushes Diesel into the hole and draws Diesel underneath in the hole, that when Diesel reappeared, he had a gray streak in his hair. I thought, my gosh, that’s great. It was ruled to be too cheesy. “
The Rock downloads on wrestling promoter ‘Dirty’
The Rock remains one of the most popular professional wrestlers the industry has ever seen, and his influence is still being felt in the business. He had many fights during his time as a young wrestler in WWE and faced many adversities. John Cena ranted about having to lose to The Rock.
After the last episode of “Young Rock” finished airing, Rare editor Jack Hunter recently took to Twitter and commented on the episode.
Teen @TheRock knocking out a kid at school for calling wrestling “fake” just made my night. Because you know what happened. #YoungRock
The Rock responded to Hunter, where he said he hit a boy with a hammer in elementary school and then knocked out someone in high school for calling pro wrestling “fake.”
Hi Jack, it sure happened. Twice. Monté drove a boy in elementary school. KO a kid in high school. He was suspended both times. I was wrong. But back in the 80s, my dad and all the fighters taught me to “protect the business” always. It’s what we did. #YoungRock
The episode also featured the underbelly of the professional wrestling business, especially the promoters. The Rock responded to a fan who mentioned this.
There was a hard / seedy belly in professional wrestling for decades and decades. It was what it was and you did your best to keep your head spinning in those shark infested waters.

CM Punk ‘Last Match’ comments on Jon Moxley Leak
Jon Moxley revealed how CM Punk making a rude comment made him smile during Jake Roberts’ return to WWE Raw in January 2014, which ended up being a swan song for Punk in ring on Raw. Moxley just reacted to a rumored WWE comeback.
Moxley told Inside the Ropes: “I haven’t spoken to him [Jake] about that. It seems like it was a million years ago. I remember that it was like trying to play dead and that the snake is like tickling my face, so I try very hard not to sell that it is tickling my face. CM Punk was in a ring and he just said, ‘That fucking snake in your face!
So I just laughed and was supposed to get knocked out by DDT, and I was laughing at him yelling that the snake f *** me I don’t think so. “
He added that Jake Roberts would possibly be at the Royal Rumble that year, “Yes. Well, at the time, I was trying to line up for the Rumble, but that didn’t happen. It’s probably good that it wasn’t. But that’s done. But at the time, actually, Moxley … It really wasn’t Moxley’s fault because CM Punk, who was right there, said to Moxley, “Oh my gosh, the snake is f ****** don’t stop laughing” .
