Vince McMahon ruled over WWE with an iron fist over several decades, as fans grew accustomed to how he conducted business. Things are different now as he no longer has as much power now. That said, McMahon once fired a WWE talent for making excuses about missing a meeting.
The former Chairman of WWE had a lot of peculiarities about him that instantly made him the enemy of many people. In fact, McMahon has released many employees for the most bizarre of reasons.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, former WWE Superstar Maven talked about his time in the company. Maven revealed that a WWE Superstar was once fired by Vince McMahon for making excuses about missing a meeting.
“There was actually one time that an excuse got someone fired. So let me set the scene for you: It was a TV taping, like all others, and it wasn’t often that Vince would call everyone together for a full talent meeting. So, when we were all gathered there, there was a hush, there was a quiet. Waiting to hear exactly what was on his mind because something was setting him off, and we didn’t notice it at that moment, but there was a fellow wrestler who was absent from that meeting.
And Vince let everyone know this person was absent because not only were they late, but then they made the excuse that they did not get a wakeup call. And Vince made the statement, ‘If you’re trusting someone who is working a minimum wage job to get you to your place of employment on time, you’re not the person I want in this company, trust me.'”
Ever since Nick Khan took over as the President and Triple H took over as the COO of WWE, the company has been veering away from the usual Vince McMahon regime. Ari Emanuel, the CEO of Endeavor is largely responsible for all these changes as well.
WWE is also disregarding a religious rule from Vince McMahon. That said, Vince McMahon also has no intention of parting ways with WWE anytime soon. We’ll have to see how WWE will continue to grow without his influence.
