Former WWE Superstar Mark Jindrak claims Triple H “buried” him during a documentary that revealed why Jindrak was pulled from a potential spot in Evolution.
The former WCW Tag Team Champion joined WWE when Vince McMahon bought his competition and purchased WCW in the spring of 2001. Jindrak briefly appeared as part of The Alliance before being sent to developmental territories HWA and OVW.
Mark Jindrak joined the main roster of WWE in 2003, forming a tag team with Garrison Cade but things could have turned out very differently. Jindrak was almost a part of the Evolution stable alongside Triple H, Ric Flair, and Randy Orton, but his spot, in the end, went to Batista.
This was the subject of some discussion on an episode of the documentary series Ruthless Aggression on the WWE Network/Peacock. Triple H discussed Jindrak’s potential role in the group but felt he lacked maturity so nixed his spot in favour of The Animal.
Speaking to Rene Dupre on Cafe de Rene, Mark Jindrak accused The Game of burying him with his comments but admits that Triple H was also right in his assessment:
“He was kind of spot on. It’s funny how blatant he was. He blatantly buried me. Some of the things were false. I’ll tell you what was true, was me and [Randy] Orton were f*cking, as he called [us], jackoffs. We were jackoffs, and Rene will tell you… me and Orton would travel together and sometimes guys would make the mistake [of traveling with us].”
Mark Jindrak then elaborated on why he perhaps didn’t gel with Triple H as well as he did with The Nature Boys during long car rides together:
“The problem was Triple H wanted to talk about f*cking hot tags and sh*t. A three-hour ride, you want to talk about armbars and hot tags and sh*t for three hours? I understood it, he wanted to talk X’s and O’s, but Flair wanted to talk about young stuff like girls and clubs.”
Mark Jindrak went on to join Kurt Angle in a short-lived stable alongside Luther Reigns before departing WWE in 2005, just 3 months after his Evolution replacement Batista had won his first World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 21.
