Former WWE Producer Reveals Star That Was Considered For D-Generation X

During his recent podcast, Bruce Prichard talked about how Vince Russo wanted Test to be a member of D-Generation X in the late 1990’s:

“So [Vince Russo] envisioned Test being a part of DX early on” Prichard said. “Hunter hated it, Shawn hated it, everybody hated it. And Russo made the comment that ‘[Test] is as big as Kevin Nash but he’s younger and he’ll be better.’ And that of course set Shawn and Hunter off — ‘he’s no Kevin Nash.’”

“And then on top of that, and again we don’t know this from a talent relations side — this is when I was really just doing talent relations, getting in new talent. From my vantage point I wanted Test in developmental so he could go out and learn and get better because he was a big guy and had a lot of potential. He wasn’t ready for prime time by any stretch of the imagination. I didn’t realize Russo already had this idea for him and had already approached people about it. I was like, ‘he can’t go man he’s not ready — he’s not seasoned, he’s just not ready yet.”
