WWE: Vince McMahon Green Lights Incest Angle

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Vince McMahon has given his approval for a storyline involving incest. It is slated to involve Ohio Valley Wrestling wrestlers Katie Lea and Paul Burchill. The angle would likely take place on either RAW or ECW, because there is some concern that it would get the wrong kind of heat if it were to take place on SmackDown — which is on network television.

McMahon has wanted to do an incest angle for years. He once suggested that he be the father of his daughter Stephanie’s baby. As revealed on the McMahon DVD, Stephanie turned down the angle. According to her, Vince was to reveal himself as the father of her baby; when she said no, he pushed for Shane to be the father, but she turned that idea down as well.

The incest idea was first batted around in 1999 where Ken Shamrock and Ryan Shamrock (his storyline sister) would end up as lovers. Ken nixed the idea and that was the beginning of the end of his push at the time. There is some irony in the angle as Ken and Ryan ended up as a real-life couple at around the same time frame.
