    An Unfortunate End

    I'm sorry if this has already been done, but what has been the most dissapointing thing you've seen happen in wrestling due to outside interferance (outside of kayfabe, like the media)?

    I thought about this when looking up Muhammed Hassan, who supposedly was booked to win the World Heavyweight Championship before having been released by WWE due to media pressure over an incident on Smackdown that aired after the 7/7 bombings in London. He retired straight afterwards. I feel so sorry for the dude.

    RVD dropping both the WWE and ECW championships in the space of two days because he and Sabu got busted with possessing pot.

    RVD's WWE title reign was awesome and the possibilities were endless... instead it was a brief interlude in that really shitty 3 year period when Cena hogged the belt and only jobbed to Edge (never cleanly) and a pectoral muscle injury. The Big Show's ECW reign was somehow even worse.

    Magnum T.A.'s car accident. There was a guy who could have changed the landscape of wrestling he was so popular. But then again, maybe not.

    Darren Drozdov was an NFL player and a promising WWE talent who career was cut short by a botched wrestling move.

    I liked the Muhammed Hassan character. They were on to something good there. But the media has such a powerful influence.....

    Was going to mention Droz - it was sad, I quite liked the guy but I don't think he'd be any sort of impact player

    I believe Magnum was set to eventually win the NWA title from Ric Flair.

    I believe he could have been the guy to take NWA to the next level....but Watts would have made Magnum drop the title the customary 30-90 days later back to Flair

    And that would have possibly been his only reign since World titles weren't treated like whores back then!
