The WWE Legend discussed how he would introduce McMahon on Something To Wrestle With Bruce Prichard podcast.

“A crazy genius. John Layfield and I had this discussion not long ago, talking about how people say he’s out of touch and he’s lost it and all that. I remember the same comments about him in 1984. That he is killing the wrestling business, he doesn’t know what he’s doing, he doesn’t have a clue. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard it in the 90s and the early 2000s. Look, I’ll put his track record against anybody, but it was always intense and it was during saner times, but it was never boring.” H/t Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard

It’s not just in the 90s or early 2000s when individuals took shots at Vince McMahon. This happens even today. However, The Big Man remains unaffected considering he knows where he stands within the industry and the number of pro-wrestlers queuing up to find a place inside WWE.

To him, discipline and working as per the script is more important than top Superstars. He can ALWAYS CREATE NEW CHAMPIONS. He has that capacity, and he knows it!
