Vince McMahon Thought Brian Myers & Matt Cardona Were Real-Life Brothers
The Major Brothers were related in kayfabe only
WWE has a proud history of successful brotherly tag teams; The Hardys, The Steiners, The Rougeaus, and an even longer list of ‘kayfabe’ brotherly tag teams, such as Edge & Christian, The Dudley Boys, and The Major Brothers.
However, according to Brian Myers (fka: Brian Major) during a virtual signing for K & S WrestleFest, Vince McMahon thought that he and Matt Cardona (fka; Brett Major) were real brothers:
“[The Major Brothers gimmick was axed] because it was going nowhere and we had the idea to do the Edgehead thing so, we just — yeah, I think it worked out well and we never didn’t wanna be The Major Brothers. We wanted to just join Edge and then what I’ve been told that I didn’t realise at the time is that Vince [McMahon] thought we were shoot brothers and then when it all came up that we already joined Edge, he goes, ‘What? They’re not brothers?’ Like that’s f****** stupid and that’s when he said come up with new names and we came up with Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder. So that was never part of our plan. It just kind of fell into our lap.”
