5 times Vince McMahon abruptly canceled a Superstar's push
- What could have been, if Vince hadn't canceled these pushes?
The incredibly creepy and mysterious Superstar came to the main roster after WrestleMania 20. It all began with a series of disturbing vignettes shown on WWE TV. The character donned a religious zealot-type outfit and was immediately pushed as a heel, defeating Superstars like Scotty 2 Hotty and Hardcore Holly. The original plan for Mordecai was to get pushed for months on end, with him finally taking on The Undertaker at WrestleMania 21. This rivalry could have done wonders to his career.
