WWE Releases Behind the Scenes Footage From Its 1999 Super Bowl Ad

The Super Bowl is on tomorrow and many companies will be spending a ton of money to get TV advertisement slots during the broadcast.

The WWE has now shared never before footage of its own Super Bowl commericial that aired back in 1999.

In the past, the WWE was secretive of the professional wrestling business as it rarely showed wrestlers behind the scenes and out of character.

Nowadays, the company is more relaxed and does not mind fans seeing a different side to their favorite wrestlers.

Almost 20 years later, the company has now decided to show fans some behind the scenes footage from the Super Bowl commercial that it aired back in 1999.

Some of the wrestlers featured here include Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker and Mankind.

While the video posted on YouTube shows a lot of great footage, the advertisement itself has been edited in order to please the product's current PG image.

The original advertisement had a section with Sable talking about sex, but her scene has been cut completely in this re-upload.

Still, it's an interesting watch if you want to step back inside a time machine to see what the WWE was like in the late '90s.

The company was far from a PG product at the time as it was edgier and catered towards people between the ages of 18 to 35.

For fans of Dwayne Johnson, you can also see the actor before he got famous in Hollywood.

Its his stint in the WWE that opened doors for him to be an actor in the first place, although he looks far different in 1999 than he does right now.

You can watch the video for yourself down below. Remember, this year's Super Bowl is on tomorrow as the New England Patriots face off against the Philadelphia Eagles.
