Did You Know... That Match Where Nash Tore His Quad

Post by Big Red Machine » Jul 19th, '20, 12:32

You know the famous Raw ten-man tag from July 2002 where Kevin Nash, in his first match back from another big injury, he managed to tear his quad within fifteen seconds of tagging in for the first time?

Well did you know that Nash tagging in was scheduled to be the beginning of the finishing sequence? And that said sequence would see Nash laying out all of the babyfaces (Booker T, Goldust, Bubba Ray Dudley, Spike Dudley, and Rob Van Dam) before pinning Booker with a Jackknife? And that this was done to put him over huge in order to build him up for a top match at SummerSlam against Triple H?

And, for bonus, points, did you know that two of the top three matches planned for that show as of early July that year didn't take place? The original top 3 was going to be Rock vs. Brock for the title, Nash vs. Hunter... and Hogan vs. Vince?

This has me curious to know whether Booker was originally scheduled to win at WM 19, but it was ix-nayed once someone (read as: Hunter, or maybe Nash) realized that that Nash would be back right after Mania?

Where would that have left Shawn though? He wrestled Hunter at the Summerslam 2002. Also what were they smoking if they thought Hogan vs McMahon would've drawn again, especially after Hogan came out on top?

Shawn would have had his return match later (I believe Shawn's return was originally supposed to be a one-off but he enjoyed it so much and felt so good afterwards that he decided to come back full time).

Hogan vs. McMahon hadn't happened yet. The match we eventually got was WrestleMania XIX on 2003.
