Maven holds the honor as the first Tough Enough winner back in the early 2000s. He won the first season and won a WWE contract. He was in WWE from 2001 to 2005 and had one of the most memorable moments in Royal Rumble history when he eliminated The Undertaker with a dropkick. Now it appears he expressed his disbelief at Booker T allowing Vince McMahon to use a racial slur on WWE television.
Vince McMahon is the Executive Chairman of WWE and he is known for his larger-than-life personality inside and outside the squared circle. After all, McMahon has done many questionable things over the years.
Back in 2005, Vince McMahon was involved in a backstage segment with Booker T, Sharmell, and John Cena, at Survivor Series. In the segment, McMahon called Cena a racial slur and Booker T was shocked right after that.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Maven talked about his time in WWE and expressed his utter disbelief that Booker T allowed Vince McMahon to use a racial slur on WWE television.
“Yeah, I gotta be honest. I forgot that existed. I am shocked [Booker T] allowed that. Book is one of those guys you do not mess with. Book is legit. He is a legit tough guy. I’m surprised Vince didn’t get more backlash at that too. He’s not getting away with that these days, I know that.”
Maven was a part of the professional wrestling world as he was competing in the Figure Wrestling Federation. Triple H also previously spoke to Maven about hisWWE return. We’ll have to see if that will ever happen in the future.
