Vince McMahon is the Chairman of WWE and oversees everything that goes on in the company, having the last word at every instance. Vince McMahon likes to keep himself incredibly busy and watches the product as much as he can.
Vince McMahon also has very interesting methods when it comes to selecting the next WWE Superstar, which others might find weird.
While speaking to John Poz on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, former WWE on-screen personality Todd Pettengill talked about Vince McMahon’s peculiar methods of conducting interviews, which included selling brooms and water bottles.
“I went for an audition,” Pettengill said. “I think he wanted to make sure I was at least competent on camera. You hear the audio part [on radio] but yeah, when you interview for Vince, you’re given a broom or a bottle of water to sell, so I was given the bottle of water. And it was just like, ‘Alright, sell me this. Talk for two minutes. Go.’ A lot of people get the broom, a lot of people get the water. That’s how it went.”
Vince McMahon will continue to do things in the way that he sees fit and that’s not changing anytime soon. Pettengill is set to co-host the NXT TakeOver: In Your House Global Press Conference with NXT commentator Wade Barrett.
