• “That was definitely a possibility” – Bruce Prichard On The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak Ending In 1996
During an episode of his ‘Something To Wrestle With’ podcast, Bruce Prichard talked about the WrestleMania XII pay-per-view.
The 1996 WrestleMania featured the last WWF matches of Razor Ramon & Diesel, before they left for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling a few months later.
Below are the highlights:
On Razor & Diesel leaving the WWF:
“In hindsight, looking at it, it was one of the greatest things that ever happened to us was they left and we had to create new stars.”
On whether Razor Ramon would have defeated Goldust at WrestleMania XII:
“Had Razor been staying, yes.”
On Diesel’s more edgy heel character in early 1996:
“It was deliberate, and it was to give Diesel an edge and just to throw in a little bit more. ‘Edge’ is the perfect word, but more reality and a little bit unpredictability.
So it was, ‘let’s give Diesel’s character a little bit more of a darker edge to it’ and we hadn’t done it. Not everybody was doing it.”
On whether Diesel would have broken The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak, if he was not leaving for WCW:
“That was definitely a possibility, yeah. The Streak wasn’t even entered into the conversation.”
