Sometimes a really great story doesn’t come together on television. There can be several reasons for this kind of thing happening and sometimes it’s out of anybody’s control. Apparently, there were plans to bring Vince McMahon’s real-life brother on WWE television but it didn’t happen for a very tragic reason.
When Vince McMahon was killed on-screen via exploding limo a lot of people wondered what was next. Court Bauer was a WWE writer at the time and discussed how the story might have gone if it weren’t for the Chris Benoit tragedy which brought Vince back to life ending the angle.
Court Bauer recently spoke to The World According To Wrestling podcast where he explained what might have been in the works during the “Vince McMahon is dead” era.
“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.”
He also said there were discussions about bringing Roderick’s children into the mix as well. This might have eventually resulted in some cousin vs cousin matches down the line. However, this never materialized due to the awfulness surrounding the Benoit Family double-murder suicide.
