Vince McMahon might be one of the most powerful men in the world of sports and entertainment, but he’s a completely different person behind the scenes. As told by people within the industry over the years. Vince loves to play pranks on his colleagues and talent.
WWE superstar Happy Corbin is one of the people who have gained the boss’s trust and friendship to a point where Vince feels comfortable messing with them when the cameras aren’t rolling. According to Corbin, Vince McMahon’s antics can be both fun and frustrating.
“Vince, he’s amazing. We have a crazy relationship because he’s a big kid at times who is also the most powerful CEO you’ve ever met in your life. He’s got that business swagger, the way he walks around, but if you’re not looking he’ll smack you in the back of their head if you have that relationship with him.
“He’s hit me a couple of times. You know when someone does something and you instantly just get angry and want to punch them in the face, but you haven’t seen who or what it was yet? He’s done that to me a few times.
“If I’m not paying attention or if I have a shirt on or something, he walks up, and I hate being slapped or smacked, and he smacks me in the back or across the back of the neck and I turn around ready to kill, and I see it’s him and he’s just belly laughing and there’s literally nothing I can do. It’s funny but it’s also frustrating.”
Corbin is set to square off with former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre during the first night of WrestleMania 38. The two-day extravaganza will take place from inside AT&T Stadium April 2 and 3 (Saturday and Sunday). You can check out the full card right here.
