Which great ideas did WWE refuse?

As we all know, WWE comes in the sports-entertainment genre and this is why the storylines become an important aspect of the business.

WWE has given us some great storylines throughout its history, but there have been times when the management's myopic vision led to refusal of some great ideas.

Here are five great storyline ideas which were rejected by WWE.

Hulk Hogan introducing Bret Hart as the new face

WWE initially planned that Hulk Hogan would pass on the torch of the company to Bret Hart in 1993.

This would have been a phenomenal storyline between two of the finest performers in pro-wrestling.

However, it is believed that Hogan refused the idea and him being WWE's top star, McMahon also agreed.

Hogan later lost the title to someone as inconsequential as Yokozuna.

Just the opposite was meant to happen before Hunter cried to his father-in-law.

John Cena

It is believed that McMahon liked the idea, but it was around then WWE had signed a deal with Walmart and the merchandise of Cena were selling like hot cakes.

WWE backed out, but this heel turn would have been amazing.
