WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is regarded as one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. However, he wasn’t always as successful as Austin made his WWE debut as the Ringmaster. He also turned down a very disturbing gimmick in the past.
The Undertaker has feuded with several stars in the past, including Steve Austin and also Diamond Dallas Page. DDP was a huge star in WCW before he made his way to WWE.
DDP’s storyline with The Undertaker saw him become a deranged stalker, who always went after The Undertaker’s wife. While speaking with Give Me Sports, DDP revealed that WWE initially pitched the stalker gimmick to Steve Austin, but he turned it down.
They wanted [Steve] Austin to do it. And Austin is like, ‘F*ck that!’ And he told me about that later and I was like. ‘You couldn’t have called me up and said that to me?
The storyline will forever remain a blemish on DDP’s excellent career. Regardless, the damage has been done and it can never be taken back. Clearly, Steve Austin knew what was better for him as well.
