Smackdown’s Hade Vansen is reportedly no more, despite having only one promo a couple weeks ago on SmackDown. Several sources say that the WWE has already decided to scrap the character.
Originally, Vansen was supposed to feud with the Undertaker, but Vince decided against it in the end. Vansen, Kevin Fertig (aka Kevin Thorn), and developmental talent Black Pain were informed of the decision at last week’s TV taping. Apparently, Fertig and Black Pain were going to be involved in the angle somehow.
