This week on “Wrestling With Freddie”, Freddie Prinze Jr stated that Stephanie McMahon needed a WrestleMania 28 match between Superior Kong and Beth Phoenix. This is Prince describing how the plan for this was squashed.
“Stephanie McMahon commissioned me to write a Divas story. They known as it the Divas Title and the wrestlers have been Divas then, which I all the time thought was so silly,” she stated.
“So this was the story she was writing and he or she (Stephanie) stated, ‘We’re signing Superior Kong,’ which was this fighter named Kia Stevens. We had one other fighter named Beth Phoenix. So these two have been those who assigned me to create a WrestleMania match. Now this was not a request from Vince or Kevin Dunn. This was a request from Stephanie McMahon, who was working the ladies’s division and making it imply one thing again then with extremely restricted success. You may take a look at the place she is now and he or she has had her fingerprint on every a type of steps to the highest, which is the place I really feel like they’re now.”
“So my WrestleMania card was going to be Superior Kong, who hadn’t been known as Kharma but, which was how they tried to debut her earlier than she left the corporate. It was Beth Phoenix as a babyface and Superior Kong as a heel,” Prinze continued.
“So you could have this girl who needs to destroy all these excellent Barbie dolls. The primary sufferer was going to be Kelly Kelly. Nattie would ultimately lose to her as nicely. This brings us to Gail Kim, who had a historical past together with her in TNA and had simply been signed by the corporate as nicely. This was going to be Superior Kong’s first check and Gail would take some severe offense, however she would ultimately go down. It was then that Kong would name out Michelle McCool, the Divas Champion. Michelle would lose the Divas title to Superior Kong on the Royal Rumble.”
“So I write this. I give it to Steph and he likes it loads and Michael Hayes likes it loads. He goes all the way in which to the highest. He goes to Vince and is authorised. However the WrestleMania match is just not assured. That’s the objective.”
(A while later), “Michael Hayes tells me, ‘There’s an issue together with your Diva story and we’d like to speak about it.’ I stated, ‘What’s the issue?’ He stated: ‘It is gone.’ I stated, ‘What occurred?’ He stated, ‘Properly, Michelle (McCool) stated that you simply and he or she talked and he or she actually did not just like the story, so she left. She spoke with Undertaker. Undertaker spoke with Vince. The story is gone.’”
