An interesting conversation took place between Vince McMahon and Austin Theory in the ongoing WWE Storyline that featured Bill Apter as the special guest for this week’s Legion of RAW. This veteran journalist shared his opinion and thoughts on Shane McMahon returning back to fight against Theory.
During the early weeks of RAW, Apter was a huge fan of Austin Theory. He felt that the company failed to promote the 24-year to the next level as the storyline had not reached any heights yet. Bill Apter felt that the possibility of Theory becoming Vince McMahon’s son is petite and whether Shane McMahon’s comeback gets involved in the story or not.
“I liked the first few weeks that I saw Austin Theory with his whole gimmick with the selfies. I like it, I really thought they were going someplace with this, but I think they are not moving him to another level. They are keeping him where it is, so it’s the same thing every week at this point. So, the loss, what’s it going to do? It’s going to make Mr. McMahon angry at him, but where are they going with this? Is he going to be his son, and then Shane comes back and says, what are you doing? That’s my father! The person who loses the match is Vince’s son.”
After a relatively long leave, Shane McMahon was given an opportunity to be back on WWE. Vince Russo, on the other hand, explains that McMahon is too old to be featured as Austin Theory’s storyline dad. The former WWE writer had the same thoughts as Bill Apter that he had no idea about the future of this program with the CEO of the company.
“Let’s be honest; he is way too old for the storyline to be like, Austin Theory is my son. He would have had Austin when he was like 55. Like, that ain’t happening. I don’t know where we are going with this, bro,” Russo stated.
