Vince McMahon is a very busy man, and getting face time with The Chairman is very difficult. It is getting even harder since Bruce Prichard is now playing the role of gatekeeper to McMahon’s office.
Sports Illustrated recently spoke to Santos Escobar, the current NXT Cruiserweight Champion. When Vince McMahon came up in the conversation, Escobar had a very interesting revelation: he’s never met Mr. McMahon.
“There is one thing I haven’t been able to do, and that is meet Vince McMahon. I’m committed to this industry, and that is a lifetime commitment. I was born and raised to do this. I think Vince McMahon is a genius, and I want to meet him. That, to me, is an immediate goal. He will either like me or hate me, but I will discuss my background with him and what I bring to the table. I need to discuss that with Vince McMahon, and that is one of my most immediate goals.”
We’ll have to see if Vince McMahon and Santos Escobar will finally get some time to get acquainted. The two obviously haven’t been in the same location yet, but that could change in time. Obviously, this is something that Santos Escobar wants to accomplish soon.
