John Cena Sr. can't understand why WWE didn't want to turn Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt into modern versions of Kane and The Undertaker. In 1997, the character of Glenn Jacobs made his federation debut in Stamford as the brother of The Undertaker.
The two superstars continued to interact with each other for the next two decades, eventually becoming iconic faces of the company both in the eyes of fans and their peers. Speaking with Dan Mirade of Boston Wrestling MWF, the father of 16-time world champion John Cena criticized WWE's choice of not giving Dallas enough opportunities.
The former NXT champion was expected to engage in a feud with another much-discussed wrestler, namely The Fiend. He said: "WWE has missed a huge chance to give life to the new Kane and The Undertaker, who could have looked like Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt.
Maybe I have a different view of how to use superstars, but when you have such talents you have to build something better for them. I immediately understood that those two guys had what it takes to do something great, but for some reason the WWE didn't want to press their brains."
In John's opinion, Otis is also set to leave WWE soon. The latter collaborated with Tucker from 2016 to 2020, before the latter received the compliment from Vince McMahon to general amazement. "I don't think Otis will stay in the company for long, I'm afraid his departure is imminent.
Comedy in wrestling doesn't work, especially that way. Do not fall into humiliation or denigration of women or other professionals. I do not like. I know that I will receive some criticism for these words of mine, but it is my sincere opinion.
Otis has no real place in WWE."
WWE announces a nostalgic episode of Smackdown!
Over the years, WWE has accustomed us to staging several important weekly episodes of its most popular shows, dedicated to the Superstars of the past or in any case to an idea and a type of wrestling that is now past.
The last episode of this type, which WWE wanted to stage from the ThunderDome, was the famous Raw Legends of January, with which WWE also wanted to stage the beginning of the challenge titled between Bill Goldberg and Drew McIntyre, when the Scotsman was still WWE Champion.
Apparently, this time Smackdown would be the brand that will return to take a dip in the past, given that WWE wanted to make an unclear but still very interesting announcement for next week and therefore for the next episode of the company's blue flag show.
. With a press release entrusted to an image during tonight's Friday Night Smackdown episode, where the most anticipated event was the main event between Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, valid for the maximum title of the show, with Reigns obviously beating his opponent, getting him banned from Smackdown, WWE has announced that next Friday there will be an edition of the show that will return to the past.
At the moment no further details have been given regarding this special episode, nor have special appearances been announced for the evening, such as legends or other athletes, who have not been seen in the blue rings for some time.
The only thing that has been discussed since the very first minutes after the announcement, is that WWE could finally bring back the famous giant fist that dominated the titantron, at the entrance of the ramp leading to the ring.
For several years, many WWE fans have been asking the company to re-install the piece of scenography in that of Smackdown, both to better characterize Smackdown, and to return with the mind to the fantastic, most prosperous periods of the blue show, such as that of the beginning 2000s.
