Former WWE writer talks cancelled story involving Vince McMahon’s real-life brother

Vince McMahon

You never know what can happen in WWE and sometimes the best angles don’t even see the light of day for one reason or another.

Court Bauer recently spoke to The World According To Wrestling podcast where the former WWE writer discussed a planned storyline that was going to take place following Vince McMahon’s on-screen death via limo explosion. Of course, the “Vince McMahon is dead” story didn’t last very long as it was scrapped after the Chris Benoit tragedy occurred.

“I always think what could’ve been because we were gearing up to do something with Vince’s little known brother Roderick,” Bauer said. “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.”

“How Vince the tycoon he is, the ruthlessly aggressive guy, you know, took over the family business,” Bauer said. “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.”

Apparently, there were also plans to bring in Roderick’s children as well which might have resulted in cousin vs cousin matches down the line.
