The Higher Power

Hey Scott,

 

Your mention of the Higher Power nonsense in your latest Heat recap reminded me of that whole business. The only thing I remember about this now (good lord, it’s been 20 years!?) is “It’s me, Austin! It was me all along!” which almost makes
it worth it for that meme.

 

I’m sure this has been discussed to death, but did they have anyone else in mind when the Higher Power stuff started? Or was it just Vince Russo making it up as he went along? I think I heard something about Jake Roberts being the ultimate
reveal, but didn’t happen because of his substance abuse problems. Or maybe that was just fan theories, I’m not sure.

There’s been lots of fan theories and retroactive “we knew all along” wanking by guys like Bruce Prichard but really they were making it up as they went.  Although Brother Love would have been a funny payoff that tied into Undertaker’s origin.  Or Paul Heyman.
