WWE had big plans to push new talent under Paul Heyman’s watch. RAW was set to be a place where new Superstars were built, but then Heyman was fired and Vince McMahon combined both brands’ writing teams under Bruce Prichard’s reign.
Shane Thorn and Brendan Vink debuted on the main roster on RAW. They had some segments with MVP and it looked as if MVP was going to start a stable using them. Then they disappeared.
Ringside News exclusively reported what went on behind the scenes with them. They were Paul Heyman guys, and now Shane Thorne is back on NXT.
WWE revealed today that Thorne will face fellow Australian Bronson Reed on NXT next week. Thorn’s last match was in a losing effort against Humberto Carrillo on June 15th’s edition of Main Event.
We’ll have to see when Brendan Vink shows up again. He hasn’t been seen since March 11th’s episode of WWE RAW.
