Throughout wrestling history, fans have been faced with different storylines that managed to catch their attention. They either sit well with us, or they turn our stomachs to the point where we are completely sick of the product. Whether it is a man eating worms or another one cleaning out toilets, professional wrestling never ceases to amaze us for what they come up with. However, it really shouldn't surprise us. In fact, we have pretty much seen it all when it comes to angles and characters. Today, wrestling appears to be more based on extensions of the real person. Some of the most successful wrestling personas today leave us nodding along because of the believability of the characters. So while what we see today shouldn't surprise us, some ideas were so far into left field they left us scratching our heads and saying "What were they thinking?"
These ideas never actually happened, but the ideas were passed around and those that were suggesting they had to really rethink what they were contemplating. Whether it was breast implants on one of the male WWE superstars, or an iconic wrestler actually making his debut in a turkey costume, these ideas were out there. We can be thankful that they never came to pass. (Well, the turkey costume idea actually did happen, it just involved a different wrestler.) Here are the 10 most shocking moments in wrestling that almost happened.

1 The Proposed Incest Angle Between Vince & Stephanie McMahon
Vince McMahon has been known for coming up with some uneasy angles and storylines, but one he proposed went too far. During his daughter's time off-camera having children, Vince had an idea to capitalize on her condition and create controversy. The proposed storyline involved Stephanie and her husband Triple H's first child. Vince called her into his office one day and told her he planned to write her condition into the storylines. Pregnancy angles in WWE aren't new, but in this instance it was not only wrong, but criminal. Vince proposed an angle revealing incest within the McMahon family, and that he would claim on-screen that he was the father of Stephanie's child! It goes without saying that Stephanie didn't support the storyline. She turned the storyline down and stated "I don't know who would find entertainment in a storyline like that."
