• WWF Legend Banned Diesel From Leapfrogging Over His Opponents
During an interview on the ‘Games with Names’ podcast, Old School WWF Legend Shawn Michaels revealed that he was responsible for making ‘Big Daddy Cool’ Diesel leapfrog over his opponents back in the 90s in the World Wrestling Federation, but Razor Ramon eventually opened his eyes about the move making no sense whatsoever for a big man like Kevin Nash.
Here’s what The Heartbreak Kid had to say:
“We used to bust each other’s balls over all sorts of stuff. You know, Kevin Nash, big ol’ huge guy, and I thought it was cool that he could leapfrog.
To watch this big dude leapfrog, and I had him do it in a couple of matches.
One time, we’re driving down the road, Scott Hall’s in the backseat, and he’s like ‘Hey, let me ask you a question’.
Kevin and I are up front, and we’re like ‘Alright, what is it?’. ‘How come the biggest guy in the company avoids contact?’.
And we sat there, and we thought about it, and I was like ‘Man, you’re right. Kevin, don’t ever leapfrog again’.”
The legendary ‘Kliq’ consisted of Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon (Scott Hall), Diesel (Kevin Nash), The 1-2-3 Kid (X-Pac) & Hunter Hearst Helmsley (Triple H), … and Aldo Montoya (Justin Credible) – despite not being an official member – was losely associated with the backstage group.
