I don't see Taker vs. Nash as the plan because weren't they both heels?

Kane would make more sense, being a babyface and because he feuded with the nWo after WM.

I'm glad he didn't compete.

I think they chose Hall instead of Nash to face Austin because Hall and Austin better mash wrestling and character wise.
It would have been interesting in a way to see Austin vs. Nash, since they've been close friends since like 1991. They didn't acknowledge that obviously, but they could have. They could have really played it up.

Did Mr. Perfect even wrestle at Mania 18? I don't remember

Well, as we all know The Rock pinned Hogan anyway. So, I don't think it was a case of Hogan not doing the job. I think it was as case of heat between the two because of WCW. The Rock, never been there, didn't have the issues Austin had win Hogan, Bischoff etc., so it was just a better working environment for The Rock vs Ho
I think Kevin Nash,Scott Hall,Hulk Hogan,Austin and even The Rock himself,all have confirmed that Rock vs Hogan was a lock right from the word go.They fixed this plan even back on October 2001(even before NWO arrived/were about to arrive).


Austin was supposed to win the first Undisputed WWF championship and main event Mania18,against the returning Triple H,were he was supposed to drop the belt.


However,Austin being Austin,didn't wanted to lose,hence they went with Jericho ahead as the undisputed champion.



Since Hogan was not available,now the next guy was Razor Ramon aka Scott Hall,and I have read reports where they mention that even Hall was supposed to defeat Austin at Mania18,but Austin refused to put him over and they both had a small unforgettable match at the event.


But,anyway,Nash should have competed atleast against Kane.Another missed opportunity for him and WWE.

THE ROCK: The biggest star and draw of pro-wrestling industry EVER.

1.Holds the record of drawing most major shows with 10,000+ attendance on top in one calendar year.[Broke Hogan's(1986) and Austin's(1998) record in 1999 and set a record of headlining over 100 shows with 10,000 plus people in attendance in year 2000.A box-office drawing record that is unsurpassed till date.]

2.Holds the record of main-eventing almost 17 PPVs that have got over 500k buys(again,a feat of inimitable drawing power that is unmatched by anyone in pro-wrestling history)

3.Drew the highest cable ratings during the AE.

4.Sold more merchandise than anyone active between mid 1999-2001.

Re: Why Kevin Nash did not wrestle at WM18?

Rock vs Hogan was the original plan and also ended up happening. Don't know why people are still saying it was Austin vs Hogan. It has been confirmed by multiple shoots pretty much.

Re: Why Kevin Nash did not wrestle at WM18?

According to Nash, he says he felt Austin wasn't too fond on working with Scott Hall. He said when they got there, Austin was tired and was on wits end. He also said Austin was upset about losing to Jericho and thought it would diminish him. And when the nWo came in, and they were going to go over, Nash says it was bad timing and he doesn't blame Austin for feeling that way, as both are pretty close to this day.


The thing I hate is how people constantly try to say what the original plan was and that it was confirmed by multiple shoots. Yeah, because the wrestling business is full of truth tellers. I don't see Austin or Hogan saying anything that would make them lose credibility, regarding refusing to put the other over. I don't see the Rock addressing the matter at all because he doesn't want to bury anybody.


Only thing I've heard is Hogan say he was working with Rock from the beginning (no surprise) and I've never heard Austin directly mention it, although it's known that at that time, he wasn't too fond of Hogan.


Unless whoever was working creative at that time does a shoot interview, we'll never really know the original plans because of the 4 known involved, 2 are known liars (Hogan & McMahon), 1 wasn't too fond of Hogan or creative at that time (Austin) and the other likely doesn't dwell on it and isn't going to say anything negative about either of the other 3.


Being "confirmed" in multiple shoots doesn't make it the truth. It's been "confirmed" in multiple shoots that Nash wasn't booking when he beat Goldberg but people still don't believe that to be true (regardless of who "confirms" it), so this is really no different.

Re: Why Kevin Nash did not wrestle at WM18?

I think it should have been ddp vs nash, I know seems random but the guys were formerly tag team champs so their could have been a nice story behind it. Christan (the guy who ddp faced) should have face edge in a final fued capper. Booker t (the guy who faced edge) could have been in a triple threat intercontial championship match. (excuse my spelling)

Even if a creative member shoots on this, how do you know he's telling the truth? What you are suggesting is the complete disregard of every and any thing ever said as lies, and nothing is to be believed. Just because something sounds more attractive to you, doesn't mean it's the truth. And if you just want to point out that absolute knowledge cannot be attained, then there's nothing to discuss at all.

It is all laid out in front of you. Nobody has ever come out and said Austin was the original plan. Multiple people have come forward and said Rock, but it is all a coincidence, right? How is it not logical to think Rock was the original plan? You are the same as the conspiracists that say Rock recently walked out and didn't get injuried because there is no "real" evidence, even though loads of interviews have "confirmed" it verbally.

And BTW, I'm a much bigger Austin mark than I'm a Rock mark, but the length that Austin marks would go to defend Austin is disgusting.
