Konnan Explains Why WWE Gave His Max Moon Gimmick to Paul Diamond

March 14, 2015 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

WrestlingInc.com recently talked with Konnan, and he talked about his run in WWE as Max Moon and why the gimmick went to Paul Diamond. Below are some highlights from the interview:

On how WWE gave the Max Moon gimmick to Paul Diamond: “They never got over it. There were a lot of people there that were very envious of the fact I only got flown in for TV tapings, they brought in Mexican wrestlers to work with me. I wasn’t on the road, I was getting special treatment. There were a lot of people hating on the gimmick, and it didn’t help that I got tired of lugging the Max Mon costume around. I’d have to lug around 8 boxes and take two taxis. It was just a pain in the ass. Meanwhile I was blowing up in Mexico, I had just done a soap opera, so I didn’t show up to work. Then they gave it to Paul Diamond.”

On WWE holding it against him: “I’m sure they didn’t like that because when Eddie [Guerrero] first came in he went to Triple H and said ‘you should bring Konnan over, we could do good (stuff) with him.’ Triple H came back and asked Eddie if I had heat with Vince, and I said I think so because of the outfit. Bruce ‘The b—h’ Prichard always treated me bad too, so he might have had something to do with that.”
