Many of our readers noticed the horrible finisher this past Monday night on RAW during the Benoit/Hassan match. As probably most of you were able to point out, the idea was for Benoit to do a headbutt, however end up hitting his head on the bell. The plan that called for Hassan to roll over and cover Benoit. Since that didn’t happen, management from backstage changed the ending to a DQ with Hassan doing the low blow. It was a last minute decision.
The reason this is important, or interesting in the first place, is because there have been rumors of keeping Hassan strong and undefeated for a reason. WWE actually considered putting him into some sort of segment with Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 21. As you can imagine, this will give Hogan the rub he always looks for, as well as a reason to pop the fans at the biggest PPV event of the year. Do remember that those are simply rumors, but the fact of the matter is, they’re keeping Hassan strong and undefeated going into WrestleMania.
To add more fuel to the fire, rumor has it that Hogan is the reason the originally scheduled WrestleMania match — Hassan / Daivari vs. Benoit / Jericho — will no longer take place, and Chris Jericho’s Ladder Match Challenge (to involve Chris Benoit most likely) was then introduced.
