• “F**k that” – Stone Cold Steve Austin Refused To Participate In Infamous Undertaker Storyline
WCW Legend Diamond Dallas Page was recently interviewed by GiveMeSport, where he revealed that Stone Cold Steve Austin was originally supposed to portray the (kayfabe) Stalker of The Undertaker’s then-wife Sara Calaway on WWF TV in 2001.
Here’s what DDP had to say:
“When you’re doing something like a stalker idea, they built this storyline and couldn’t get anybody to do it – that’s the real deal. They wanted Steve Austin to do it. And Austin is like ‘f**k that!’ and he told me about that later and I was like ‘you couldn’t have called me up and said that to me?!’
But, the bottom line was, I thought they were trying to make us going in there. Because there was no more WCW, but that was not the deal.
The deal was, and it had nothing to do with me personally, it could have been Sting or Goldberg or whoever – whoever it was was going to get fed to whoever it was in the top angle because it was ego and it was business.”
Page himself ended up becoming the stalker and feuded with The Undertaker, which culminated in a SummerSlam 2001 encounter, in which The Brothers of Destruction defeated the team of DDP & Kanyon in a Steel Cage match for both the WCW Tag Team Championship and the WWF Tag Team Championship.
