Vince McMahon has wrestled before in his own company. He has bled and battled with the like of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, but he has been in matches where the fans had no idea who was in the ring.
WWE Hall Of Famer Sgt. Slaughter recently spoke to WrestlingNews.co.where he made a pretty surprising revelation. Apparently, Vince McMahon has wrestled under a mask to disguise his real identity for the fans.
“I’ve got a lot of Vince McMahon stories but I can’t tell them, He was never able to become a wrestler because his father wanted him to be behind the microphone so he could control things a little bit better.”
“One night we were driving in the car together and [Vince said] ‘one thing I really miss Sarge is getting in the ring.’ I said ‘you want to get in the ring? Go put a mask on.’”
“It wasn’t the funnest time in my life but we got it done.”
This is a pretty funny story. I can only imagine just how many times he wrestled under a mask. It also gave him a great chance to get in there when nobody had a clue who it was. It might have been a good idea for him not to abuse the privilege though because you never know when something can go terribly wrong in the ring.
