WWE has made its share of mistakes in terms of bad taste over the years. Blaming currently-employed superstars on the air for the firings of their friends and coworkers is just the latest example. Perhaps the most egregious of all time, though, was 2002’s Katie Vick angle.

In the story, Triple H accused Kane of murdering young woman named Katie Vick. Eventually, The Game would go so far as to mimic sexual acts with her corpse. Tommy Dreamer recently shared the original plan for the angle on his House of Hardcore podcast.

“The whole Katie Vick, narcolepsy [Necrophilia] angle, that all came about through Vince and the payoff of all that was going to be Sick Boy Scott Vick was going to wrestle Triple H at WrestleMania to avenge his sister, who was dead. That all came about when Sick Boy Scott Vick had a dark match tryout and Vince just liked the name Scott Vick because they couldn’t call him Sick Boy. This horrible angle with Kane and Triple H was going to be the caveat to headlining WrestleMania with Scott Vick avenging his sister Katie Vick.

I remember Johnny [John Laurinaitis] having to tell Vince, ‘That’s great, but he’s not employed here.’ He was on a tryout. People have gotten hired on a lot weirder things but I think after that, it was just, ‘Oh,’ and we lost that amazing WrestleMania to avenge [Sick Boy’s] sister’s horrible degradation of her grave. That’s sometimes how these crazy things happen in WWE.”


If Tommy Dreamer is to be believed, we nearly had a match between Sick Boy and Triple H at WrestleMania. Even more startling is that Vince McMahon didn’t know that Sick Boy didn’t work for him at the time. Apparently, McMahon didn’t think he was worth signing, and the idea was forgotten.

It’s a very interesting “what could have been” situation. Who knows, maybe Sick Boy getting into the ring with Triple H could’ve launched him to superstardom. Instead, it’s just an amusing footnote to a bizarre point in time for WWE.
