Former WWE Writer Reveals Why Storyline With Vince McMahon’s Real-Life Brother Was Nixed


On The World According To Wrestling podcast, former WWE writer, Court Bauer, went over the details of a cancelled storyline involving Vince McMahon’s brother. WWE dropped it because of the Chris Benoit saga and never revisited it. Here’s what Bauer said:

“I always think what could’ve been because we were gearing up to do something with Vince’s little known brother Roderick,” Bauer explained. “His family was going to come in the following week and be part of the funeral for Vince McMahon and I was always pushing that I would love to get another side of the McMahon family involved with WWE. I think it would’ve been fascinating because people forget that Vince has a brother and I think that that story would’ve been amazing.”

Bauer also said, “How Vince the tycoon he is, the ruthlessly aggressive guy, you know, took over the family business. His poor brother, what happened to him? And now there’s a refresh on the McMahon dynasty and all of the rivalries and stuff you could tell now, all of these new stories that are there because Roderick has children that you could play with in this setting.”
