The original run saw the brothers last together from 1998 to 2001. After the dissolution, they had brief reunions – last competing together against the Wyatt Family at Survivor Series 2015.
Now, the idea of a third Brother of Destruction sounds crazy, right? But according to former WWE and TNA superstar Matt Morgan, there were plans for him to be the third brother in the alliance. Morgan explained the plans during an interview on the Wrestling Inc podcast.
While developing at Ohio Valley Wrestling, Morgan was given a mask to wear in character. He lost a match and came back repackaged as “The Blueprint.” According to Morgan, WWE was planning to put him in a storyline with Kane:
“The cool part was they were going to turn this into, I was gonna be Kane’s brother Abel. And I would’ve killed for that! I would’ve worn a hood gladly for that just because I’m a huge ‘Taker and Kane fan. What leads to Kane leads to ‘Taker, right? Nine-year-old Matt Morgan inside was going bananas.”
Unfortunately, Morgan claims that Vince McMahon stepped in and decided to scrap the idea – ending any hope of the 7-footer joining the Brothers of Destruction alliance.
The storyline could have led to promising things for Morgan. Instead, he only had a brief tenure with the WWE as a mid-card wrestler. Morgan had a brief feud with Big Show, but nothing notable beyond that. He traveled to different promotions in Europe and Japan before joining TNA, where he’s been in-and-out ever since.
It’s hard to know for sure if another Brother of Destruction member would have gone over with the WWE. All we know is that Vince McMahon wasn’t buying it, and Morgan had his dreams dashed.
You have to feel for him, but at least Morgan was able to build an excellent career in WWE’s rival promotion.
