Vince McMahon wants to give a monster push to a new WWE Raw star

You can expect to see a lot more of Brendan Vink on WWE TV because there are big plans for him.

Vink and Shane Throne defeated Ricochet and Cedric Alexander on Monday Night Raw and it certainly came across like Vink would be the one who would eventually break out as the major singles star.

Mike Johnson noted on PWInsider Elite audio that Vink is someone who WWE management has been keeping an eye on for a while.

Johnson said, “Brendan Vink has been a project in the developmental territory for some time. EVOLVE had him where they were using him to build him up. He would have been given a bigger push in EVOLVE if they hadn’t been shut down.”

Johnson also said that Vink’s call-up to Raw is the beginning of them trying to make him into a big star and there are plans for a long-term push for him.

Johnson said, “One person described it to me that it was kinda like when Braun Strowman was part of the Wyatt Family when Vince McMahon saw him as a long-term project to build for the future. That’s kinda where they are with Brendan Vink to build him as a long-term project.”

Vink, real name Elliot Sexton, was signed to a developmental contract in 2019. The 6 foot 5 Australian certainly has the look that Vince McMahon favors and it appears he has all of the tools to become a top name in the company.
