I remember reading awhile back that Undertaker (back around 1997-98) was supposed to have a female valet named Scarlet accompany him to the ring, but the plans got scapped. Butch Reed was supposed to win the IC belt in 1988. Ultimate Warriar vs. Hogan 2 was supposed to happen at WM7 if not for the Desort Storm war. It got me to thinking on how many storylines that never even made it on TV were seriously discussed and abandoned at the last minute. I even recall reading years back that Dina Bravo had a face turn, dumping Jimmy Hart on the Brother Love Show back in 1991, but never made it on TV.

Whatever happened to the mysterious "self-lifting" briefcase at KOTR 1999? It's assumed it was the Corporation, but it was never announced or resolved as to who actually did it...

But the breifcase thing was actually televised, I'm talking about stuff that was planned, set to go, then ditched before it was on TV.

And wrestling fans wonder why the general populace think they're idiots...

It worked out for the best, though. I would trade Austin-Hart for that any day. And, really, we got our HBK vs Hart rematch later that year anyway. It's just unfortunate that Bret never got to beat Shawn again. There's always hope in his next WWE run!

It seems as if Benoit Brock is now ditched angle. They could have still done Benoit-HHH and kept it in synch with Brock-Benoit, but they just severed it completely, which is a shame.

And, it was the Bossman (who wasn't technically a Corporation member or something like that) who lifted the briefcase.

a great example would be when Zack Gowen supposedly was set to join the Mattitude club last year, which never materialized. For all the waste he turned out to be, a heel turn for Zack could have been promising.

Not to nitpick, but Dino Bravo's face turn did make it onto TV. He didn't last long onscreen afterward, but he dyed his hair black. He became very bland without the cocky attitude he had as a heel. Bravo was pretty damn entertaining, in retrospect. Just a terrible wrestler.

Let's all remember that many of these "abandoned storylines" were probably made up by people not affiliated with WWE, WCW and the like. So don't believe everything that you read.

That being said, didn't Russo and/or Bischoff admit to the one abandoned storyline about Vampiro, the Demon, and some sort of supernatural feud?

And I know that there were plans for a Four Horsemen type faction to feud with 4H because Benoit wore the tights featuring their logo long after the storyline had been scrapped.

No way, they never showed Dino Bravo being a good guy and dying his hair...are you talking about maybe like the early 80's? I'm talking about a time period of 1990-91. Supposedly Dino Bravo turned on Jimmy Hart on Brother Love Show at a TV taling but it never aired.

Another storyline that was supposed to occur, but didn't....(for VERY obvious reasons)....The Blue Blazer was scheduled to win the IC strap from the Godfather at Over The Edge '99.

I don't remember him as a face however the 1992 European Tours featured Dino Bravo with black hair working as a heel. He had a match against Bret Hart for the IC belt and teamed with Col. Mustafa (hehe) against the LOD.

Thats right! European rampage 92 - The first time ever the WWF/E visited Germany.
And the first match that night in Munich has been Hitman vs. blackhaired Dino Bravo as well! It even has been televised back then! But only for german tv (Tele5) I think.

I also remember his "turn"!
It really hasnīt been a big deal back then, but I remember thinking
"What the f**k!No one will cheer for Dino!!"
And rightfully so no one ever cheered for Dino!
The fact that he had to wrestle the Hitman says it all about his run as new babyface. It just didnīt work.


Hereīs another match that didnīt happen:

Hogan vs. Hitman at Summerslam 93!

And shouldīt have Luger won the title from Yoko at wm x?

I also read last week, that they shortly thought about giving the wcw title to Tank Abbott (!!!) after winning a battle royal on ppv!
That of course never happened and they gave the vacant title to Benoit in a match against Sid.

Well, there is the whole Savage/Honky Tonk Man/Ted DiBiase pre Wrestlemania IV deal. Supposedly HTM was supposed to drop the IC title to Savage, but refused. Also, DiBiase was allegedly going to win the WWF title in the big tournament at WM. Since Savage didn't get the IC title he was given the WWF title in the tournmanet to keep him happy (he might have had a contract expiring or something). Poor Ted was robbed of what could have been his only world title because of HTM's refusal to job- if you are to believe the stories. I don't know how HTM had the power to refuse to drop the title, especailly when he ended up dropping it in 30 seconds later that year.

Ted DiBiase: WWF world champion- that would have been pretty damn cool.

This is very bizzare. Does anyone actually have footage of the Brother Love Show where Dino turned face? Another angle that got ditched was when the Rockers beat the Hart Foundation at a house show and the titles switched hands but it was never shown on TV, and never mentioned. And what about Ahmed Johnson supposedly refusing to do a program with Kurrgan?

I'm still waiting for the resolution of that late September/early October night in 1986 when Jimmy Garvin smashed a cinder block on Magnum T.A.'s ankle. And of course, where was the payoff for Gino Hernandez blinding Chris Adams on X-Mas Night of '85?

But I think the biggest mystery of all is WCW's "The Big Bang PPV". This was when Fusient Media and Eric Bischoff were going to buy WCW, and they had big plans for the first PPV under the new regime. Supposedly, Bischoff was going to produce the most contraversial shocker off all time at this event which never occured, since WWE bought.

Speaking of the dying days of WCW, I know this wasn't a "wrestling" storyline, but what about WCW giving away $1 million dollars? I remember Schiavone announcing it on Nitro once, then never hearing about it again.

That was simple. They announced it on Monday Night. Uncle Eric was fired/relieved of his duties the next Friday afternoon. Thus, it never existed again.
