Vince McMahon ‘Warned’ Fired WWE Tag Team

Vince McMahon is WWE’s Chairman and oversees everything that goes on in the company, right to the very last detail. Ronda Rousey match also outraged Vince McMahon.



Former WWE Superstar Doug Basham believed his job was at risk after a conversation he had with Vince McMahon back in 2004. As part of the $1,000,000 Tough Enough series, contestants from the reality show participated in weekly challenges on WWE SmackDown.

In one particular episode of the show, the Basham Brothers made sure no Tough Enough contestants were able to retrieve the flag within the 30-second time limit from the top turnbuckle.

Basham recently spoke on the Cheap Heat Productions Podcast, where he revealed that Vince McMahon warned him and Danny Basham before the show that they are not to let anyone capture the flag.

“Vince McMahon comes up to me and Danny. He goes, ‘Now, boys, you see that flag’s gonna be hanging over there underneath that turnbuckle? You see what’s on that turnbuckle, right?’ You know, the WWE symbol. He goes, ‘That’s what you’re representing tonight. Short of killing anybody, make sure nobody gets that flag.’ And he hit me on the shoulder and walked off. And I went to Danny, ‘We’ve just been put on notice. If anybody gets past us, we’re fired.’ Short of not hurting anybody, nobody got that flag.”
