Kevin Eck Remembers Hardcore Holly Pitching Himself To Win The WWE Title

While WWE has plenty of writers, it's often said that wrestlers are encouraged to pitch their own ideas to get them on television.

Whether they make it to TV is a different story, but fans have read plenty of pitches from a variety of wrestlers over the years.

Hardcore Holly decided to swing for the fences when he gave his pitch.

"Brian Gewirtz, former WWE writer, now Dwayne Johnson's right-hand man, who apparently has a book coming out. He was telling us the story one time when I was a writer for WWE that they were encouraging talent to pitch ideas. If creative has nothing for you, so to speak, what's your idea? He said Bob Holly came up to him one day and said, 'I got an idea for one of them storylines.' Brian goes, 'Really, Bob, what is it?' 'I WIN THE TITLE!' That's it," former WWE writer Kevin Eck recalled during The ROH Strong podcast.

Holly would famously challenge for the WWE Title against Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble 2004.

He did not win.

Elsewhere during the ROH Strong podcast, Eck and EC3 recalled an NXT writer getting heat from Triple H. You can find their full comments by clicking here.
