Together, Big Daddy Cool and The Heartbreak Kid won championships, climbed to the main event and instilled a little bit of WWE programming long before the phrase “Austin 3:16” was spoken.
The WWE Universe will soon learn the inside story of Diesel and HBK’s influential partnership with the WWE Untold: Two Dudes with Attitude World Premiere, which airs on Sunday, May 2, exclusively. Peacock in the USA and on WWE network elsewhere.
This new documentary takes WWE fans back to boyhood formation in 1993, when Michaels saw something in young Kevin Nash that many others couldn’t. With one phone call, their lives would be changed forever as Nash risked everything to leave WCW and enter the WWE as The Heartbreak Kid’s imposing bodyguard, Diesel. This was followed by a meteoric rise to the top, a bit of a hellish climb and friendship for life.
Michaels and Nash sit down to share how their time together included not only lessons for the square of the circle, but also for life outside the ring. The episode will also feature interviews with WWE CEO Bruce Pritchard and writer David Shoemaker, who will share their views on Diesel and HBK’s dominance in the 90s.
Mark your calendars now and be sure to check out WWE Untold: Two Dudes with Attitude when it premieres on Sunday, May 2.
