- Two time National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Hall of Famer Dan "The Beast" Severn recently appeared on The Undisputed Wrestling Show to discuss professional wrestling, MMA and his training academy. During the interview, which you can listen to here, Severn discussed being told to job by road agents in WWE.
"They can 'ask' me to job," Severn said. " What would happen when I walk in to your Mickey Mouse cartoon world and I turn fantasy into reality? Which of your so called 'champions' do you think stand a chance?"
Severn also said that he considered turning his appearance in the 1999 Royal Rumble into a shoot.
"It crossed my mind to contact WCW and say to Eric Bischoff and Ted Turner, 'what's it worth to you guys for when it is time for me to exit the ring and I turn fantasy into reality and I clear that ring? It's live. Every 90 seconds they're (WWE) going to feed me some fresh meat. Eventually they're going to get me out of the ring, but they haven't gotten me out of the arena yet.' I could have caused a lot of havoc."
