Vince McMahon ‘Doesn’t See Money’ in Current Main Eventer

In an all-too-confusing story, Vince McMahon reportedly doesn’t see money in a current WWE main eventer. The story started out as Daniel Bryan being the guy referred to, but Shawn Michaels has recently said Bryan IS NOT the guy who Vince was talking about.

Two weeks ago, the Ministry of Slam show did an interview with Shawn Michaels, during which HBK alluded to an unnamed WWE star who Vince McMahon doesn’t “see money” in, and does not believe in his ability to draw.

In an update to that story, is now reporting that the superstar in question is Daniel Bryan, and the following is a transcript of what HBK had to say in the interview:

“I had a conversation a couple of weeks ago with the man in charge and we were talking about a certain individual and he goes, ‘I just don’t see money in him.’ And I said, ‘You said the same thing about me.’ He said, ‘I did not.’ I said, ‘Yes you did!’ (laughs) I said, ‘And it’s okay. It’s just one of those things.'”

“I wasn’t your prototypical—heck, I wasn’t anybody’s prototypical main event guy. And I knew that. So, you just do your absolute best,” said Michaels. “Yes, I was very scared and very worried, which had a lot to do with how bad I handled stuff because I spent a great deal of my career waiting for the other shoe to drop. Because it was a very real view of me and my ability and my talent. I’m a firm believer that talent does rise to the top, but you have to be patient. So, I spent a great deal of time worried, intimidated, and concerned that with each passing storyline, it might be the last one.”

HOWEVER, in an update to the story: Shawn Michaels has said Daniel Bryan IS NOT who the story is referring to. Michaels went on to say “that [Daniel Bryan] isn’t even who we were talking about. He’s [Vince] big on DB. Shame y’all let those folks work you like that… No, the guy is actually 6’3 250, ironically, y’all miss the same point he did. Amusing since everyone’s knocking him.” Michaels also said that he did not ‘measure the guy’s height and weight’ and that he was ‘just guessing at 6’3″ and 250.’

    Probably Alberto Del Rio or Dolph Ziggler.

  2. Daniel says:

    Jack Swagger

  3. Guled says:

    probably Del Rio, he sucks anyways.

  4. Alex says:

    If Vince doesn’t see money in Danielson… he’s either deaf or blind…or both.

    The crowd is on fire for him.

  5. Daniel says:

    @Alex, you didn’t read the whole article, did you?

  6. ~J* says:

    cena damit I knew it…sux for him brah.

  7. Swayze says:

    Maybe Barrett. They sure don’t book him like they ever expect him to draw.

  8. Vendetta says:

    I believe its Del Rio as well, the guy is pretty boring, especially on the mic. His in ring ability is ok. Its definitely not Bryan hes a fan favorite right now.

  9. dave says:

    He’s talking about HHH of course!

  10. Legend_Killer says:

    Vince is talking about John Cena. LOL.

  11. ~J* says:

    if i were betting I’d say whyback is the guy…he’s lost like how many main events?

  12. Truth says:

    I bet it’s Del Rio, since they moved back to a heel so fast.

  13. N. Gaijin says:

    Man, fans are going to annoy the hell out of Shawn over this.

    My guess would be the same as J’s though, I think it’s Ryback. He might be a big guy, but they have yet to put any gold on his waist. I might be inclined to agree with the people saying Ziggler, but I don’t think HBK would overrate his size so much. As for Del Rio, look at how many times they’ve put the gold on him. He’s had the Heavyweight and WWE titles more than anyone who has been around in as short a time span as he has (even more than Sheamus, that’s crazy). If Vince were shaky on him, I doubt he’d have the success he’s had in the company.

  14. RJ Ace says:

    Daniel Bryan wouldn’t be getting the push he’s getting right now if Vince McMahon didn’t see money in him. Some IWC smarks always have ridiculous conspiracy theories about why a guy isn’t getting a push but the cream always rises to the top. Daniel Bryan was just given a submission victory over one of the top 5 stars of the last 10 years and one of WWE’s golden boys in the main event of Raw.

  15. Daniel says:

    Barrett is a good idea. He was never given the top strap back in the Nexus storyline for whatever dumb reason and they don’t use him much. Though I don’t know if I’d call him a “main eventer” so not sure that it’s him.

  16. Mike says:

    It’s Antonio Cesaro, obvious.

  17. Jack says:

    The article said main eventer. That means its probably between Cena Punk Orton Bryan Sheamus Ziggler Ryback or Del Rio. Of that list it has to be Del Rio

  18. aag44 says:

    It’s probably still Punk…

  19. someone says:

    Problally Ziggler.

  20. Dev says:

    Del Rio or RyBack for certain…

  21. Adam says:

    Nether Ziggy or Del Riiiiiiiiiio would ave ever had the belts if Vince didn’t see money in them. I would agree that it is probably Ryback. He’s one dimensional and he’s about as over as the bubonic plague. It would explain his heel turn in lightning fast speed as well. They’re trying to find a way to cash in on the big guy. I just don’t see it. If it isn’t Ryback, I’d suspect Barrett as a runner up. I like Barrett but something with him is missing.

  22. Adam says:

    Could possibly be Joe Hennig too…just sayin’

  23. snowpanth says:

    Its Ziggles
