Some things are off limits. Vince McMahon is still the most powerful man in wrestling and that brings some major influence. While he does not show up on WWE television very often these days, he still makes for a very strong force of nature. Just appearing on television with McMahon suggests that you are a bigger star and that has been the case for over twenty years. It would have been the case again last year but the segment never came to pass.
Last year saw one of the most well received stories in a long time in the form of Kofimania. The story of Kofi Kingston’s rise to the top of WWE and ultimately winning the WWE Championship was very long in the making and it took several weeks to set up the title match itself. As it turns out, there was something planned that we never got to see and it could have been rather interesting.
During a recent episode of New Day’s Feel The Power podcast, Big E. explained that part of the storyline would have seen himself and Xavier Woods break into McMahon’s office and destroy everything in an attempt to get Kingston his WrestleMania 35 title shot. McMahon would have been cowering in the corner as they wrecked everything, though there was another option that would have seen McMahon not involved at all. It is not clear why the segment never took place or whose idea it was in the first place.
McMahon has a history with the New Day. Check out some of their interactions:
Opinion: This is something that could have been a lot of fun had it taken place as McMahon’s office is almost an inner sanctum. Once you get all the way to McMahon, you are at a point where everything is different. That’s where things get serious and as a result, the story feels that much bigger. They wound up succeeding, but it was something that could have gone in a different yet still awesome direction.
