Christian recently revealed WWE almost went through with plans to give him a new gimmick that would have seen him be a ‘spinoff’ of The Rock named “The Lock.”
Christian revealed the news on the most recent episode of his podcast with Edge, Edge & Christian’s Pod of Awesomeness, laying out how the idea came up: (transcriptions via Sports Illustrated / Jimmy Traina):
Christian then explained that Vince McMahon was not up for the idea and effectively put an end to it, but he himself was not a fan because it would never be as good as the original Rock. He says someone in the WWE offices called him and said Vince turned the idea down, saying it was a really stupid idea and they wouldn’t do it.
