PWInsider.com reports that WWE Raw will be pulled from the USA Network for two weeks in February, airing on Syfy instead, which will surely upset Vince McMahon. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon decides the position of talents in the company. He also takes the call whom to ‘push’ in the roster. It seems that the former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor, who was considered to be a top star of the company won’t be ‘pushed’ anymore beyond the mid-card. Previously, WWE also caught ‘sabotaging’ Finn Balor in photo.
Vince McMahon stops ‘push’ of Finn Balor
Last night on Monday Night RAW, it was noted how long-term plans for Finn Balor as a top star in the company have been snubbed. Austin Theory, who had been heavily featured in the segments with Vince, scored a clean pin over Balor on the show. Theory would win the match in 6 minutes and in the process, make his mentor happy.
Theory has been featured in backstage segments with McMahon for weeks now and one can say that not everyday talents get a chance to work in segments with Vince until he has huge plans for the talent. Vince considers Theory as someone who can break out as his next big star down the road.
WrestlingNews.co recently reported that they spoke with someone in WWE about Balor’s clean loss to Theory and they were told the following:
“Yea, Finn was moved into the spot that Jeff Hardy had. He’s just there now to help get over the younger guys. There was a pitch to make him heel but that was weeks ago and I haven’t heard much about it since then. Vince never saw Finn as more than just a mid card guy. Heyman would have pushed him to the moon but Vince just never saw it. Austin [Theory] is going to get time to shine in the Rumble match. Last I heard was he will be in the final 4 or 5 at the end of the match.”
The same source also informed them that McMahon feels that Theory will become a main eventer within the next year. We will have to see what plans WWE have in store for youngster Austin Theory.
