Vince McMahon is one of the most influential people in the world of sports and entertainment. The 76-year-old billionaire never shies away from taking risks, even if it means putting his body and fortune on the line.
Vince once told a WWE talent he used to acrobatics in his younger years. The talent in question is former WWE 24/7 Champion Reggie. The real-life Sidney Bateman currently performs on the RAW brand.
Reggie said Vince told him he would do acrobatics back in the day after watching the 29-year-old’s PBS documentary. Per Reggie, he found the story funny but didn’t want to laugh.
“So, he didn’t say, ‘Let me show you,’ but he watched my PBS documentary where I was talking about getting out of the games and all of these things and using flips to do all of that stuff. He comes to me and goes, ‘Just watched your PBS documentary. Really good stuff. I use to do all of that back in my day.’ I didn’t want to laugh because I’m like, ‘Maybe you’re serious, but uh…’ He didn’t say he could show me how to do things, but he said, ‘I used to do all that stuff back in my day.’ That was so funny to me.”
Vince is expected to be involved in the Austin Theory versus Pat McAfee match at WrestleMania 38. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, Vince’s participation will depend more on how he moves than how he looks.
