Lars Sullivan is one of Vince McMahon’s big projects and he wants to turn him into one of the top heels in the company. It didn’t come across that way on Friday at Super ShowDown when his match against Luch House Party ended with a disqualification.
Usually, big monster heels are kept strong but Sullivan was made to look average at times, except for the post-match beatdown.
On Sunday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said he was told that there was a logical finish planned for Lars Sullivan vs. Lucha House Party but the finish was changed. Presumably, the original finish was for Sullivan to easily defeat Lucha House Party but they decided on the DQ finish.
Meltzer said, “In the Lars Sullivan match, the finish got changed and the original thing that would have theoretically made sense was in fact what they were going to do. Why that changed, I have no idea. I’ve heard that they may be running the match in San Jose [on Monday Night Raw].”
Don’t look for logic in WWE storylines these days. Here is what a WWE source said to Meltzer about McMahon trying to keep things logical: “I was just told that it’s just not the case anymore. There’s no logic here. There’s no explanation of anything. Why did Shane McMahon win? It’s not like there’s a reason, it’s just weird.”
We’ll see how things play out on Monday Night Raw but if the company is going forward with Sullivan as a top heel then his first match on the main roster was a bad start. They have a chance to fix it on Monday night.
