WWE Wrestlers Once "Threatened" Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann on 90's SportsCenter Ad


Given the news that ESPN will be covering WWE weekly on SportsCenter, a Redditor dredged up this commercial from the mid-90’s. In it, King Kong Bundy, The Undertaker, Paul Bearer, Shawn Michaels, and Kevin Nash stormed Bristol to demand their rightful spot on the network’s flagship highlights show. Keith Olbermann narrated while Gary Miller and Dan Patrick were the ones shown making excuses for the omission.

There’s a much longer story to be told about WWE’s overt rebranding over the past decade that has enabled them to receive all this new mainstream exposure, but that will be its own long post down the road.
