Vince McMahon WrestleMania 38 Match Revealed?

Vince McMahon will be interviewed by Pat McAfee on his show next week on SiriusXM, and Post Wrestling is reporting it could set up a match between the two at WrestleMania 38.



Mark Henry is a WWE Hall Of Famer and a legend in the professional wrestling business. However, he did not start in the independent circuit. After he got a call from Vince McMahon in 1996, he made his way to WWE.

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.
Vince McMahon is known for his whacky and sometimes outright offensive ideas and it seems he did not spare Mark Henry and Matt Hardy as well. Former WWE Superstar Matt Hardy recently spoke on  “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy,” where he revealed that Vince McMahon wanted Matt Hardy to talk like a Black person during an angle with Mark Henry when Hardy was in his V1 gimmick.

“There was one thing I was very nervous about doing that didn’t end up happening. I was going to have a deal where I teamed with Mark Henry. There was talk of us working against Booker T and Rob Van Dam when they were the tag champs and winning the tag titles. It was right towards the end of Matt Hardy V1. What was pitched to me from Vince and creative was I was going to Mark Henry, and him being black, he had a lot in common with me having Mattitude because we were both oppressed. I would talk like a black person.

They knew at this time that even when John Cena was doing raps, we would be on international trips, and John would be freestyling back there and messing around. They knew I was a big rap fan and I was aware of all that stuff.

So there would be a point where I would start talking with more black slang and tell Mark Henry, ‘Mattitude is suppressed too, man. We have that in common.’ I was very uncomfortable with that then at that juncture. Mark got hurt, and maybe it was a sign from the seven deities, and it didn’t happen at all. That was something I was a little worried about doing because it was something they wanted me to start doing and pushing me into.”
