So there’s a series on youtube called “Cancelled WWE moments” which briefly posts “what could have been” stories in WWE and angles that were dropped. Dunno if this guy (or rather these guys as apparently there are quite a few different accounts that post these stories) pull this stuff out of their asses or if there is some truth to these stories or not, but I have to say this one in particular made me laugh my arse off.

Long story short, it talks about how Hardcore Holly nearly became a spaceman upon his return.

Other videos from different posters brought up other dropped storylines like:
-CM Punk winning the ECW title at December to Dismember
-HBK and Hogan’s feud
-Goldust getting breast implants
-Maryse becoming a lesbian and so on
-Melina’s storyline with Batista back in 06 ending with her being revealed as a man

and so on, but i thought RD would enjoy the idea of SPACECORE HOLLY!

Interesting! Thanks, Sean!

    What is meant is that maybe Bob Holly was the original choice for Max Moon?

  2. Matt Soileau says:

    This is about 65 flavors of stupid. And the video kind of sucks too.

  3. Falcone says:

    Not as bad as Vince Russo wanting the Alabama Slam to be called The Hollycaust.

  4. Cody says:

    I think Court Bauer revealed this fascinating story on some podcast a long time ago.

  5. Walter Kovacs says:

    He does have the look for it …

  6. Shawn Doc Girt says:

    Punk winning the ECW title waz real because Paul Heyman wanted him to but of course Vince waz against it. The Goldust getting breast implants waz apparently an idea they had but they decided against it too. So this guy iz somewhat right on hiz storiez.

  7. John says:

    I’m sure Vince would have suggested this, “Let’s say he came back from Uranus!!!!!!!!!!! Get it!!!!!!!!!!! Come on Pat I know you do.” (Insane Vince cackle commences for the several minutes while everyone else pretends to chuckle.

    • Matt Soileau says:

      I”m pretty sure “Planet Stasiak” was code for Uranus and that’s where Shawn was really from. That’s what the gimmick smelled like, anyway…
