Linda McMahon’s Heel Turn In 2005

When they had Linda McMahon turn heel in 2005 and fire Jim Ross, was this supposed to be leading to something eventually down the line, or was it just done for "shock value" that had no legs beyond the initial angle?

​Even though I don’t even remember what the hell you’re talking about, I’m gonna say "shock value" and probably have a 98% chance of guessing correctly.​
