The WWE announced a bunch of new NXT call ups at the end of 2018 and none of them have made their debut yet but one of them already has McMahon angry.
Lars Sullivan, EC3, Nikki Cross, Heavy Machinery and Lacey Evans are all coming to the main roster in part of the WWE’s attempts to freshen up their product.
Sullivan was the first announced and the WWE had big plans for him when he arrived, but things have soured in the last week.
Why is Vince McMahon mad at Lars Sullivan?
Lars Sullivan was scheduled for a monster push and there were WWE rumors that he was going to end up fighting John Cena at WrestleMania 35.
That is a massive push for a new wrestler on the main roster to get a shot at one of the best WWE wrestlers of all-time at the year’s biggest event, especially one that didn’t do too much in NXT to begin with.
However, things went bad last week when Rajah.com reported that he failed to make his debut on television last week as scheduled.
Sullivan reportedly missed both the Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live tapings last week. According to reports, he had an “anxiety attack” before his planned debut.
The WWE worked with him to help with his anxiety issues but then he reportedly failed to turn up for the weekend house shows and has not been in contact with the WWE since at least Sunday.
This is a huge mess because John Cena will be gone again after this week’s Monday Night Raw episodes. So this will possibly end the major push and chance for Sullivan at WrestleMania 35.
Vince McMahon is reportedly angry over the situation — mostly at Triple H, who was the man who keen for Lars Sullivan to come up to the main roster with a monster push.
What is next for Lars Sullivan?
Honestly, if this is true than the planned push for Lars Sulliven needs to be rethought.
It was a nice idea to create a new monster heel on Monday Night Raw or SmackDown Live, but if he is suffering from anxiety issues than he should come along slowly for his own mental health and well-being.
The plan now is reportedly for Lars Sullivan to make his official debut on Monday Night Raw on January 21 — possibly in a non-wrestling, pre-taped segment so that he can get comfortable in his new role with the WWE.
