The WWF/WWE has had some type of developmental system for years now. Whether it was the USWA, Ohio Valley, Power Pro, Heartland, Deep South, Florida Championship Wrestling or NXT…many of the company’s top superstars got their start in at least one of them. While some developmental names like John Cena, Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, The Miz, Brock Lesnar and Charlotte Flair all made big stars of themselves by first training in developmental, others never got to see the light of day. This series will focus on those wrestlers…the ones that at some point were a lock to get called up to the main roster and never quite made it. What once was hot, suddenly became a “not” as a WWE superstar.

Stormbeard Speaks

If you’re familiar with the hardcore punk movement of the early 1980s, you’ll be familiar with the term ‘straight edge’.

For those of you who aren’t, let me give a short description of what it is.

Straight-Edge is a social movement that evolved out of the hardcore punk movement. It’s defining principle is a rejection of alcohol, tobacco, and other recreational drugs. It was a direct reaction to the sexual revolution, hedonism, and excess associated with punk rock.

While I’m about to be a sanctimonious prick, I thought I would preface this article with a bit of damage control. Although it may be a little too late for that. If you were going to leave, you’d have gone by now, but here it is. I shouldn’t have to state this, but you can’t take anything as read in this climate.

I’m not attacking you

This post is not to convince…

He was a UFC heavyweight champion in Mixed Martial Arts and a world champion in the world of pro wrestling. He was accompanied to the ring by a loud, brash manager. Not only that, had a contract that limited the amount of dates he worked in the WWF. He also had a nickname of ‘The Beast.’ If you guessed we are talking about the Beast incarnate Brock Lesnar….you would be wrong. The man in question, was none other than ‘The Beast’ Dan Severn.
