Vince McMahon has been WWE Chairman since 1982 when he bought WWE from his father Vince Sr and his partners. McMahon saw quite a few changes in his company over the last few decades on top of that. All through that, the WWE Chairman continued to adapt to the changing times.
However, many fans now feel that he is out of touch and simply has no idea what is good for a WWE Superstar and their growth. The WWE Chairman is larger than life in many ways and he also has his own oddities and problems as well. He also threatened a WWE star in a recent gym video.
Former WWE referee Mike Chioda recently spoke on the latest edition of his Monday Mailbag show on AdFreeShow. Chioda revealed that the WWE Chairman liked pranking people in the company and asked him to perform a prank on a cameraman. It ended up resulting in a concussion.
Vince used to hate to see people sleep. This one camera guy, I love him, he was a great guy and I remember he [McMahon] said, ‘hey, cut him down.’ I remember I climbed all the way up this thing cause he had his hammock on something, and I cut it by his head and he went straight down into the steel. He had a concussion. I felt so bad, it backfired on me so much. We stopped in Ramstein, Germany, because we always did, and I remember, he had to go to the hospital there and he went back home. I remember apologizing and calling him and everything.
I couldn’t say ‘Vince and them made me do it.’ I didn’t want to say that, I had to do it. I shouldn’t have listened to [McMahon] but it was Vince and them guys, but the f***ing rib backfired
