Time For Mr.McMahon Character to Take a Break

I am not sure how other wrestling fans feel about this - but I for one am ready to see Vince McMahon's on-screen character to take a nice long hiatus. Yes, the character - Mr.McMahon, has been on TV and in the WWE spotllight for way too long, and I for one hope that Sunday's showdown with Bobby Lashley in a 3-on-1 match will be the last we see of Vince on the tube for a few months. The character has always been much more effective in spurts, and for now, I think that a lot of people simply moan when they hear the "No Chance in Hell" theme and see Vince doing that ridiculous walk down the ramp to the ring.

If you go back over a year ago, we have had Vince pretty much on TV for most of that time. First it was the feud with Shawn Michales that led to a rather memorable match at WrestleMania 22 in Chicago. Then we had the summer feud with DX that resulted in a Hell in a Cell match at Summerslam in Boston. Then it was a little break for awhile, but then it was right back on TV, fighting with John Cena before starting this latest feud with Donald Trump that led directly to this current back and forth with ECW Champ Bobby Lashley. Vince has always had the opinion of himself as a quality heel that faces can get over on, and I think that Lashley has done that in this case. But too much Vince is for sure not a good thing, and I seriously think we are getting to that point.

Let's use Sunday's PPV match with Lashley as a fitting climax to the feud, and for the now bald Vince it would be a perfect time to allow the ECW Champ to move on to another heel, possibly Snitsky, instead of keeping it going with a man 60+ years old. The Trump thing was cool for what it was worth, and Vince bald is also a rather amusing storyline, but enough is enough. What scares me is the impending two feuds that I have heard may happen that both involve a heavy dose of Mr.McMahon - one being vs Rey Mystero upon his return to the ring, and the other possibly being against Mick Foley. Let's hope we at least get a month away from Vince before we are yet saddled with another Vince vs Face feud.
