HE’S BEEN MY BROTHER FOR SO LONG! Droz pushing Hawk off the Titantron!

Oh yeah, R.D has inducted this one. Hawk’s Wikipedia article explains where this was supposed to go, and it sounds really tasteless and stupid:

During the Attitude Era, in which the WWF moved towards a more “adult” product, the Legion of Doom was placed into a storyline incorporating Hegstrand’s real-life drug addiction and alcoholism, against the wishes of both Hegstrand and Laurinaitis.[23] The storyline found the Legion of Doom crumbling as Hawk repeatedly showed up to matches apparently drunk or under the influence of drugs, and began demonstrating suicidal tendencies. In order to stabilize the team, a third member, Puke, was introduced. This led to the conclusion of the storyline, in which a suicidal Hawk climbed to the top of the TitanTron, the giant television monitor erected during episodes of WWF’s Monday Night Raw to show match highlights to fans in attendance. Puke, supposedly attempting to rescue Hawk, climbed after him, only to apparently throw Hawk over the side (with a special effect being used to make it appear as though fans could see Hegstrand’s body plunging a fatal distance behind the screen); Puke then revealed that he had been enabling Hawk’s drug addiction in order to kill him and take his place in the Legion of Doom. Being forced to act out Hegstrand’s personal demons onscreen eventually proved too much for both Hegstrand and Laurinaitis, and both men quit the company shortly after the “Puke killed Hawk” incident.

    One of the worst moments ever in wrestling history. Attitude Era has its good moments but there were things like this which were complete garbage. I’m glad at least LOD had that one last match on Raw against RVD and Kane before Hawk passed away.

    According to a comment on YouTube by ‘Deep Ghoul’:

    “Reportedly this angle was supposed to lead to an elaborate story where Droz, along with a debuting Vic Grimes, was Hawk’s drug pusher, and that he kept enabling him so that he could take his role in the LOD. It would eventually be discovered, and the LOD would reunite, stronger than ever to battle Grimes and Droz, but alas, contract problems and health issues forced LOD to the sidelines.”

    And sadly now one man is dead and the other paralyzed. :(

    Another NWA legend/great gimmick that was trashed by the WWF
