While Maven doesn’t know for sure, he says he once heard “through the grapevine” that he was considered to be a member of the Evolution faction.
In a new AMA (Ask Me Anything) video on his official YouTube channel, the former WWE Tough Enough winner said he may have been close to joining Ric Flair, Triple H, Randy Orton, and Batista in Evolution. He said,
“The wildest creative idea that was thrown my way was obviously the whole Evolution angle. At the beginning of the thought of there being an Evolution, it was always known that it was going to be Ric, Hunter, Randy, and then I think they were flipping back and forth between Dave and Mark Jindrak. I heard through the grapevine that they were thinking about putting me in it.”
He added, “I don’t know how true that was. No one from the office ever mentioned anything to me. It was just, you know, just in passing that I would hear it. So whether it was true or whether I was ever in the mix between Ric and Hunter, I don’t know, but you asked if there was anything — any wild creative [ideas] I heard. That’s definitely one of the wildest ones I’ve heard.”
