Former longtime WWE executive Bruce Prichard recently spent some time discussing nixed past angles in WWE involving legendary performers The Undertaker and late WWE Hall Of Famer The Ultimate Warrior.
During the show, Prichard spoke about plans for an Ultimate Warrior vs. Ric Flair feud in WWE during the early 1990s falling apart.
“I don’t think that they would have worked with one another,” said Prichard. “Talk about a clash in style. From my vantage point I don’t think we had a solid plan heading into WrestleMania 9 regarding Ric Flair and Ultimate Warrior when everybody left in November. At least not to anything I was privy to at that point. When I got there in September, we were working towards Survivor Series and then everything blew up with British Bulldog and Ultimate Warrior leaving, but I could have seen that, being a logical progression getting to Ric Flair and Ultimate Warrior. I don’t think it was ever discussed. I thought that would have been a horrible match.”
Prichard also recalled a unique idea for an angle involving himself and the Warrior that didn’t pan out.
“I was going to come back as Bruce Prichard, the real person behind Brother Love with dark hair to manage The Undertaker at one point. There was a time that I wanted to do the other one where The Ultimate Warrior got me into shape and discovered me that I was actually truly Brother Love,” Prichard said. “Those were the two that were serious and everybody likes to show the stuff online where I used to go down and collect hardcore material after matches where you would see me pick things up in the background and pick things up in the backstage area. The idea behind that was that we were going to do an auction, and I was going to be the guy who was going to do the auction. Kind of a sleazy character where we do things online and auction in-ring use items.”
