Noted wrestling journalist Irv Mushnick had a fascinating story about the possibility of Vince McMahon turning face after his Wrestlemania 26 storyline with Bret Hart ends.
So what makes the most sense to me is that, right after WrestleMania – perhaps as a subtle consequence of something planted within that show itself – “Mr. McMahon” somehow remakes himself again as a good guy. In wrestling parlance, the “heel” will become a “babyface,” turning all the hatred and heat inside-out in service of a new feud and a new agenda.
He goes on to say
Thereâ€™s no doubt in my mind, however, that the Booking 101 playbook calls for Vince McMahon to make the big switch this spring. Wrestling demands it. So does his wifeâ€™s campaign. So does his wifeâ€™s campaignâ€™s sinecure press spokespersonâ€™s husband – the state Republican Party chairman, who is drooling over what else Lindaâ€™s $50 million self-funded campaign can buy.
Very interesting story, check out the full article at his blog.
