Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs
I've heard that rumour about Mabel having a title run & I've heard that he was supposed to get a customized King of the Ring title to wear as well.
The only place I've heard these rumours though were from shoot interviews with Mabel himself.
Rumours I've heard are (I'll try not to repeat):
Bob Holly was supposed to have a lengthy Intercontinental title run in 1995.
Eddie Guerrero was going to defeat Batista for the World Heavyweight title before his untimely death.
Curt Hennig was slatted for a Heavyweight title run in late 1991 or early 1992 before his back injury.
Bam Bam Bigelow & Tatanka were going to win the WWF Tag Team titles at the 1995 Royal Rumble, but the finish was changed to the Kid & Bob Holly because nobody saw it coming.
Tatanka was going to win the Intercontinental title at Wrestlemania 9, but Shawn cried & got the finish changed.
Shane Douglas was supposed to defeat Michaels for the Intercontinental title at the In Your Hosue PPV in October 1995, but Shawn ran his mouth & got his ass kicked by some (I think) Marines.
Then Hall talked Vince into having him defeat Douglas the same night.
Adam Bomb was supposed to win the Intercontinental title in 1994, but Hall complained & no title for Adam Bomb.
Power & Glory were originally scheduled to win the WWF tag team titles from the Hart Foundation at Wrestlemania 7. However, Hogan pulled some strings & had his buddies, the Nasty Boys win them instead.
Hogan & Brutus Beefcake were scheduled to win the WWF tag team titles from Money Incorporated at Wrestlemania 9, but Hogan changed the finish because he felt that he was too big of a name to hold the tag team titles.
(Couldn't do a favour for his best friend, the Barber?)
The "Mr. Perfect" gimmick almost went to Terry "Red Rooster" Taylor
The original plan for Wrestlemania 6 was Hulk Hogan vs. Zeus, but Zeus had such a poor reaction from the fans the year before, that Vince scrapped the idea.
Hulk Hogan vs. Ric Flair was the original main event for Wrestlemania 8, but their house show matches were lackluster & Hogan felt that his opponent should be someone who was physically larger than him.
The Brawl for All tournament was designed for "Dr. Death" Steve Williams to win. The idea was that the main event for Wrestlemania 15 would have been "Stone Cold" vs. "Dr. Death".
The original plan for the summer of 1993 was: Hulk Hogan vs. Bret Hart for the WWF title, where Hogan would put Bret over. And leading into the fall of 1993 Bret & Hennig would have continued their feud, only this time for the WWF Heavyweight title.
