The boss wasn’t a fan. Vince McMahon is a lot of things but ultimately he has the final say in what takes place in WWE. That makes him an amazingly powerful person and any decision that he makes can make or break a career. McMahon is also known for some rather fast paced changes, one of which seems to have altered a new star’s career before it got a chance to start.
NXT’s Von Wagner appeared on the November 12 edition of SmackDown, standing next to Adam Pearce in his office. The appearance came after McMahon felt that Pearce needed a bodyguard, but Wagner did not appear again. According to Ringsidenews.com, the angle was dropped simply because McMahon did not like it. Wagner did not speak or do anything physical during the appearance, nor was he mentioned by name. He has since returned to NXT full time.
Wagner could be a big deal on WWE TV. Check out his time in NXT:
Opinion: It’s almost hard to imagine that McMahon could keep changing his mind this often but here we go again. The good thing is that Wagner wasn’t introduced and the whole thing can be written off and forgotten about in a hurry. Still though, it was quite the odd change and came out of nowhere, but at least it was over before it ever got off the ground. Wagner is better off in NXT at the moment anyway, so hopefully he can get more seasoning in down there.
What do you think of Wagner? How would he do on the main roster? Let us know in the comments below.
