Vince has been known for killing superstar pushes against the wishes of the fans and son-in-law Triple H. Well, he seems intent on pulling the plug on the Alexander project, even though the latter has plenty of momentum on his side right now.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Ringside News), reported that Vince "wants to bury" Alexander, and the well-known wrestling journalist simply doesn't understand "why he'd wanna do that."
Vince's decision to suddenly halt the Alexander push explains why AJ Styles has been thoroughly dominating the latter in recent weeks. And so, it seems like this hard working superstar is going to have to move back to the bottom of the card, which may not sit so well with Mr. Heyman.
It was only reported last week that Heyman had plans to slowly push Alexander, but it looks like all of that hard work is going to be all for nothing. But this is Vince McMahon we're talking about, so nobody can be that surprised.
Alexander pulled off a big upset over Drew McIntyre on the July 15 episode of Monday Night Raw, and he put on a clinic against Baron Corbin in their King of the Ring match two weeks ago. Even though he lost, Alexander was slowly asserting himself was one of the elite, up-and-coming superstars.
Hopefully, Heyman will be able to get into Vince's ear and convince him that Alexander shouldn't be buried. After all, Vince hired Heyman to run Raw, so why start interfering with his plans?
Why Is Vince Burying Alexander?
At the end of the day, the WWE chairman gets the final say in everything. Unfortunately, he's taken away plenty of superstar pushes that the fans have wanted (Alexander, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode, Finn Balor and Cesaro, among others). It's clear that Vince doesn't view Alexander as a main event star, but maybe Heyman will find a way to get the chairman on board. It'd be a massive disappointment if Vince decided to quickly end Alexander's push for no good reason.
