Further, he revealed that when someone asks Vince McMahon a question during a conversation, Mr. McMahon will sometimes sit there without saying a word for 30 seconds or longer. But Bryan admitted Vince will neither give you a bad answer nor an off-the-cuff answer.

“The ability to sit and wait and be patient enough, and then even if you don’t come up with it, then you get, ‘Okay, let me think about that.’ That was one of the earliest lessons I learned from him,” the AEW superstar added.
