Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Anyone know any wrestlers who were supposed to get title runs but plans changed.

- Nikita Kolloff had an offer from VKM to win the IC title and ME Wrestlemania 2 vs. Hulk Hogan
- Brutas Beefcake was supposed to get an IC title twice in 1988 (warrior had a better reaction) and 1990 (injured)
- Butch Reed was supposed to beat Steamboat for the IC title but he showed up to the arena late.
- The CanAm connection was supposed to get the WWF Tag Titles. But Zenk left and they formed Strike Force

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Bad News Brown was rumored to headline a program with Hogan, and possibly take the Title. you would have to research that one, but the story is there.

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Tito Santana reckons he was due a title run in 1992. Probably bullshit, though.

Off topic, Brutus Beefcake sucks. He always sucked.

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Santana was on a list of names to dethrone Ric Flair in 1992. Bret Hart eventually got the nod.
I'm guessing those names would have been Warrior, Santana, Crush, Bret Hart, Savage and Undertaker.

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Vader was supposed to win the title from Shawn at SummerSlam 96 but Shawn cried and got the finish changed while it was still going on.

Apparently King Mable was slated to win the WWF title at SummerSlam 95'

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Not specifically a title, but as good as..

Undertaker was pushing for Kurt Angle to end the streak at one point, but Angle said no.

Holy Shit, could you imagine how much that would've sucked. King Mabel was bad enough but King Mabel the WWF Champion would've been the final nail in the coffin. The man had literally no skills. When your talent roster boasts Razor Ramon, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart & Owen Hart, and you still consider putting the title on Mabel, you deserve to go bankrupt. End of.

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Billy Gunn said him winning the King of the Ring in 1999 was a last minute decision because there were some "problems" with the guy who was supposed to win it that year. He didn't say who the original winner was gonna be though.
