Backstage News On Plans For Vince McMahon & Triple H Storyline, WWE-UFC Twitter Study

- PWMania.com previously reported that WWE officials were wanting to do Steve Austin vs. Triple H with Austin backing Vince McMahon in a fight for control of the company for next year’s WrestleMania XXX main event. That idea was proposed in creative but had never been agreed to. Word now is that it’s off the books. No word yet on exactly why the idea was nixed but the idea of The Rock in Austin’s role has been talked about as well.

At one point, the idea for SummerSlam was that Vince, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H would unite but later in the year they would split again with Triple H going heel.

- A Twitter study of WWE and UFC shows that per capita, based on tweets that mention the brand name, WWE’s best three states are New Jersey, New Hampshire and Connecticut. UFC’s are Nevada, Montana and New Mexico. Both UFC and WWE’s best states are the ones they are headquartered in so it’s a metric likely moved by employees. On a geographical basis, WWE’s best states were Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, West Virginia, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Colorado. WWE’s worst were Oregon, Utah, Kansas, Louisiana Georgia and Alabama.

    I’m telling you, if WWE was smart, they would turn Cena heel and have him serve as Vince’s puppet and fight Triple H at Wrestlemania.

      Keep on dreamin’ man.
      Today’s wrestling is all about selling merchandise.
      They don’t care about what you and I think.
      Cena is their cashcow and they will milk that sucker dry.

    The idea of Austin fighting for Mcmahon boggles the mind. I feel like im gaining a tumor having to read something like that. It wouldnt make any sense of Austin’s only return match to be for fighting for vince mcmahon

  • Darnez

    I said it before, make Punk fight for Triple H, Make Austin fight for McMahon. You get the “Attitude Era vs Current era” that everybody compares, you get the McMahon/Triple H company power struggle, and you get the match that the Internet is crying for Austin Vs. Punk, Everybody wins.

    does anyone remember the last time mcmahon and austin joined forces 2001 and looked what happened there
