This week has seen Vince McMahon’s latest ‘genius’ idea to fix WWE’s ratings crisis
– the Wild Card Rule – where a “limited” number of wrestlers can turn up on the opposite
show each week because Brand Split LOL. This is reportedly because of pressure from
the TV networks that have deals for WWE programming, the USA Network and Fox, as both Raw and SmackDown
have received record low viewership figures following WrestleMania 35. McMahon’s on-air character, as a result,
appears to be a self-deluded, egomaniac heel. According to the Twitter thread from @allan_Cheapshot,
though, a little bit of that could be based on real-life, as a collection of the craziest
alleged Vince stories told by his colleagues over the years has gone viral. Most of which include toilet humour, like… “JR once farted in a car with Gerald Brisco,
which made Brisco start gagging and throwing up. Vince heard about that, so backstage at RAW
one night, he tried to fart and make Brisco puke. It backfired, and Vince s*** in his pants.” He then had to go out to the ring and do a
promo! JR said that all the production people in
his headphones told him about it, and that they were instructed to keep the camera shots
ABOVE Vince’s waistline for the entire promo.” Others continue in a less toilet-focused,
but still very much mean backstage prankster theme… “One time he got drunk and urinated on Ric
Flair’s hotel bed.” “Vince once raced former WWE writer @courtbauer
on an open highway. Vince boxed in Court so that Court was heading
straight for road construction. Court had to slam on the brakes to avoid an
accident. Vince sped off, having “won” the race by almost
killing a guy.” And “Vince, as a prank, had real police
“arrest” Jonathan Coachman for running a betting pool at work. Coach said when the cop car finally turned
around and brought him back to WWE HQ, he openly wept in relief and rage.” Be a star. But not all the stories are so mean-spirited,
as one recounts McMahon’s softer side: “Mr Fuji was in bad shape health wise and
financially but he wouldn’t come to see Vince and ask for help. When Vince found out from one of the agents,
he sent Earl Hebner with a large bag filled with money to Mr. Fuji’s house.” My personal favourite story, however, is from
Paul Heyman on Vince’s rather obsessive grooming tactics:
“Vince supposedly has a world class thick beard, but shaves constantly. Heyman asked Vince why he doesn’t just let
the beard out and save himself the trouble. Vince’s answer, “I can’t let it win.” Vince is so competitive, he’s got a rivalry
with his own face [12 SCREEN]. I understand that well… I feel like there’s something similar in
me, something sexy, trying to get o- But as competitive as Vince may be, he’s
no cerebral assassin. Triple H Heat With Vince McMahon? Shortly before Vince revealed the new Wild
Card rule on Monday night, his very own son-in-law and WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent,
Live Events and Creative Triple H reportedly liked this fan tweet from May the 4th:
“@VinceMcMahon maybe the problem with the Raw and SmackDown ratings isn’t due to wrestlers
injured, it’s that you put confusing and pointless storylines. Although it wouldn’t hurt if you gave your
wrestlers insurance. Just a thought @StephMcMahon @TripleH @WWE”
Hunter apparently unliked that tweet just three hours after liking it, so the post no
longer appears under the ‘favourites’ tab on his account – which was originally
publicised by wrestling journalist David Bixenspan with the insightful caption: “lololololololololol”
Triple H removing the liked tweet so quickly implies it was a mistake, potentially revealing
his true frustration with Vince – who’s reportedly behind frequent last-minute rewrites
of WWE programming, hampering the long term booking that Hunter so obviously favours in
NXT. An example being during February’s sudden
main roster call-ups of Ricochet, Aleister Black, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano – ruining
years of careful NXT storytelling in its celebrated main event feud. Dave Meltzer reported at the time Triple H
was caught unaware by Vince’s plans here, suddenly losing the four guys he had built
NXT around. The critique of WWE not providing its wrestlers
with health insurance transcends the relatively minor quibbles of wrestling booking, though,
and enters the very significant and controversial realm of unionisation and the independent
contractor status of WWE’s performers – making Triple H’s like even more intriguing. But this is pro wrestling, so it could also
most definitely be a work – potentially being the start of the often fantasy booked storyline
of Hunter’s ‘hostile corporate takeover’ of WWE from McMahon. And it’s always important to remember that
Triple H is The Game, and this could all be part of a larger real life game of backstage
politics – making a semi-public statement to those also frustrated in the company. Check out www.nordvpn.com/wrestletalk to get

    Vince was a genius. When we say we dont eant him its because he's gotten old and senile. He lost the passion and cant come to terms with it. It shows too. He's doing things to entertain himself more than the fans. That happens. You do a job for 40+years and you too will find ways of amusing yourself rather than putting effort into the actual job.
    The Business needs to be controlled by a guy wih fresh ideas and a new outlook. Triple H was in almost every big era of wrestling. He has an amazing mind for the business. Its seen on NXT. We all know Vince will keep going as long as he can. And then what? Triple H gonna take over when he's over 60? Thats selfish. Let a young mind handle things

    It would be funny if Triple H got one over on Vince when he inherits WWE by selling it to AEW

    If HHH wasn’t married to Stephanie he would probably quit and go to AEW

    Vinnie Mac lost touch with reality a long time ago. He should step away already. Even IF he manages to win the feud with his own beard.

  • Reply Fernando Mares May 15, 2019 at 3:49 pm

    HHH should just sign with AEW creative.

    It would be great if when Triple H does take creative control they turn it into a story line. Say Vince goes crazy. Or HHH and Vince have some major disagreements and it leads to HHH taking over. Not only would HHH taking over be great for the WWE’s well being, but you could turn it into a story itself and definitely pave the way for better story lines.
