Gangrel’s European Title Win Was Canceled Due To A Scandal (Details)

WWF Attitude Era Veteran Gangrel was interviewed by Wrestlingnewsco, where he claimed that he was booked to win the WWF European Championship at one point, but that plan was canceled because he was being punished after a scandal.

Here’s what Gangrel had to say:

“I know for a fact I was supposed to win that night, but there were some disciplinary actions, and I was innocent, but I got caught up in the middle of some stuff, and it didn’t happen.

Big scandal where somebody, I don’t know who it was, a backstage guy, he was taping people trying to sell him a bunch of steroids or something like. It was this big thing.

Everybody had to get disciplined, that even went in there and met with the guy.

I happen to be one of the guys who was in there even though I didn’t do anything or whatnot, but I just got caught up in all that.

That was weird stuff. I was just caught up in the wrong group.

I could honestly say that it did cost me winning the European Title that night.”

Gangrel wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1998 until 2001 and is best remembered as the leader of ‘The Brood’, alongside Edge & Christian in 1998/99.

He was married to Old School WWF/WCW Women’s Wrestler Luna Vachon from 1994 to 2006.
