Sorry no sign or line anymore, i'm working on raws now and i just skim through the tape (like i said before). anyways, i wondered why some matches were changed at the last second like Edge Vs. Jericho from Vengeance 2002, or Taker/Triple H from Backlash 2002. can anyone think of any other fishy match changes? i'll be sure to add more as i think, thanks ; )

Speaking of Chris Jericho, there was a match he was scheduled for at one of the lower tier PPV's, No Mercy possibly, against Ken Shamrock who got injured and replaced with X-Pac at the last minute.
And in one of the more signifigant incidents, Big Show was a last minute replacement for Steve Austin in the triple threat match at Survivor Series in which he beat Triple H and The Rock for the championship.
†This will get added at the end of each post you make, below an horizontal line. This should preferably be kept to a small enough size.
Buff Bagwell and Berlyn (Alex Wright) were supposed to wrestle at Fall Brawl 1999. At the last minute, it was changed to Berlyn v. Jim Duggan. Unfortunatley, that match (ie: Duggan) was so bad that it ended up killing the Berlyn character before it ever really got off the ground.
Blame the mainstream media. Their passionate dedication to ignoring professional wrestling (and ten thousand people attending any kind of event in your city is news, any way you slice it), opens wide the door to this kind of environment.
