The Godfather Says WWE Nearly Rebooted Papa Shango In The Attitude Era


During the latest edition of the “Broken Skull Sessions” podcast, The Godfather commented on nearly rebooting Papa Shango during the Attitude Era, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

“This was going to be less comical, a lot more serious — Jerry Lawler painted that face,” Godfather said (per Wrestling Inc). “I show up to TV, ready to go. I’m in really good shape here. I worked out hard, I’m like, ‘We going to have some fun now, I’m going to be a lot more serious this time.’ I was probably 285, I was in really good shape. I show up to TV, took these pictures, and they say, ‘Vince wants to talk with you.’ I was like, ‘Cool! I want to talk with Vince!’ I go in there, right, and Vince was like, ‘Charles, change of plans. We’re going to put you in the Nation of Domination. You and Faarooq are going to wrestle Undertaker, and you’re going to go over.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ And he goes, ‘We have this outfit made for you.’ [Laughs] Okay, I don’t know how most people would take it. I said, ‘You’re the boss, you’re paying me. Let’s do it.’”
