Bruce Prichard Comments On WWE Discussing Mark Henry Ending The Undertaker’s Streak


During the latest edition of his “Something to Wrestle” podcast, Bruce Prichard commented on WWE originally discussing Mark Henry being the one to end The Undertaker’s streak, Rey Mysterio winning the WWE title in 2006, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Kurt Angle leaving WWE in 2006: “Kurt was in a bad way, but Kurt wasn’t a problem from the standpoint of being difficult to deal with. He could be a little picky and a little whiny and things like that, but for the most, you could get there with Kurt. You could talk things through with Kurt, and eventually, it would become his own idea and he would think he came up with it. But Kurt was going through a rough patch in his life and going through some addiction and demons. Thank god he got over that and moved on. But this was not a good time to be Kurt Angle. He was not there mentally, and he was burnt out badly.”

On Rey Mysterio winning the WWE World Heavyweight title: “I think Mysterio was one of those guys you couldn’t do without. Rey had a way of coming in, and wherever he was, whatever he did, I think that Rey was that special kind of talent that he could go out and lose every single night still people were happy to see him because he’s Rey Mysterio. He delivers every time he’s out there…..Pat Patterson was one of the people that was very vocal about what to do with Rey and when to do it and why not Rey. So, every time Rey went out, you heard the audience and you just saw the reaction that Rey was getting. The audience wanted them some more Rey Mysterio, so it was kind of hard to deny it.”

On WWE having conversations about Mark Henry breaking The Undertaker’s streak at WrestleMania: “Yeah, there definitely was. It was talked about. In hindsight, had Mark probably caught on a little earlier – Mark caught on later in his career and was coming into his own during this time – Mark might have been a great guy to beat the streak.”
