Another old Vince McMahon rule for heels & faces revealed

Last week, Dave Meltzer captured our imagination* with a story about why Vince McMahon turned Rusev and Cesaro into one-named Superstars.

His fear that people wouldn’t fear or hate guys named Tony or Alex wasn’t the only old Vince-ism about faces and heels that was recently unearthed, however. Lance Storm hit us with this one on Twitter...

I guess he’s gotten over this one, because I don’t think Edge, Kevin Owens or Sami Zayn have suddenly become Americans when they’re working babyface. But it’s still fascinating to know that this stuff rattles around in the head of the most powerful man in pro wrestling history.

* Seriously, we were so intrigued we wrote about it twice!
