It was announced today that WWE’s next “WWE Untold” documentary will focus on the friendship of two-time WWE Hall of Famers Diesel (Kevin Nash) and Shawn Michaels. It will premiere on Sunday, May 2nd on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
Here’s the official announcement from WWE:
WWE Untold: Two Dudes with Attitudes to premiere Sunday, May 2 on Peacock
No pair of Superstars defined WWE’s New Generation Era in the 1990s quite like Diesel and Shawn Michaels, collectively known as Two Dudes with Attitudes.
Together, Big Daddy Cool and The Heartbreak Kid won championships, ascended to the main event, and instilled a bit of attitude into WWE programming long before the phrase “Austin 3:16” was ever uttered.
The WWE Universe will soon learn the inside story of Diesel and HBK’s influential partnership with the world premiere of WWE Untold: Two Dudes with Attitudes, streaming Sunday, May 2, exclusively on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else.
This new documentary takes WWE fans back to the Dudes’ formation in 1993, when Michaels saw something in a young Kevin Nash that not many others could see. With one phone call, both of their lives would change forever, as Nash risked everything to leave WCW and enter WWE as The Heartbreak Kid’s imposing bodyguard, Diesel. What followed was a meteoric rise to the top, a bit of hellraising and a lifelong friendship.
Michaels and Nash sit down to reveal how their time together included not only lessons for the squared circle, but for life outside the ring as well. The episode will also feature interviews with WWE Executive Director Bruce Prichard and author David Shoemaker, who share their insights on Diesel and HBK’s dominant run in the ’90s.
Mark your calendars now and be sure to check out WWE Untold: Two Dudes with Attitudes when it premieres Sunday, May 2.
TJR Thoughts: This should be very good. WWE does an awesome job on these types of documentaries and I expect this one to interesting too. You may recall that I recently reviewed their awesome match at In Your House 7: Good Friend, Better Enemies 1996 when Shawn Michaels and Diesel had one of the best WWE Title matches of the 1990s. Businesss wasn’t great during their run in the mid-1990s, but there were plenty of good moments.
