WWE rarely says “hospital” because “medical facility” sounds better. They almost arranged some angles inside a hospital which caused Vince McMahon to strongly considering donating a wing to that medical facility.

Former WWE writer Jon Rineman participated in a recent Reddit AMA. He revealed an idea that Vince McMahon had to donate a wing to a hospital as repayment for storyline plans that they devised which would really “f*ck up” that building. In the end, McMahon went another direction, but he kept the idea around to donate a wing to a different hospital.

As far as a crazy Vince story: we had an idea where someone was going to attack somebody in a hospital. And then I had an idea for it that Vince liked, then Heyman had a bunch of ideas Vince liked. So, Vince thinks about it and says: “We’re really gonna f*ck up this hospital. How much would it cost to rebuild?” He stops, thinks a second, then says, matter-of-factly, “Hmm. I might have to donate a wing to a hospital. How much does that cost?” So, our writer’s assistant started looking up how much it cost to donate a wing to a hospital. Then later in the meeting, another idea came up that nixed the hospital idea, and Vince said, “Which one is the one without buying the hospital wing? Do that one.” Then he stopped and said, “I should donate a wing somewhere though…” and it got quiet while he thought. Then he took out his pencil and I saw him write ‘Hospital.’

It would have been a lot of money to donate an entire wing to a hospital for an angle, but Vince McMahon could afford it. We have yet to hear about McMahon donating a ton of cash to a medical institution yet, but apparently, the idea exists somewhere in his notes.
