• WWE Planning To Give Debuting Wrestler A ‘Braun Strowman Push’
Brendan Vink and Shane Thorne worked as MVP’s clients this week on RAW. The duo defeated the team of Ricochet and Cedric Alexander in a tag team bout.
It looks like backstage officials have their eyes on Vink, as they’re already planning to build him like a monster.
PWInsider is reporting that Vince McMahon wants to build Vink like a monster in the long run. He’ll be part of MVP’s stable like Braun Strowman was a part of the Wyatt Family, until he’s ready to be on his own:
“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.
I was told this is sort of the beginning of trying to make Brendan Vink a star and beginning that build toward a long-term push.
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.”
