“Vince McMahon. This is his thing and he took it from being a regional thing to national and global. He gets it because he created it. The way he walks, the way he talks, his run as the Chairman in the middle of the Attitude Era, evil Vince, he’s made for it. And he gets it. Like he puts ego and self aside and goes out there and gives everything to it.” (H/t SportsKeeda)
WWE’s CEO Vince McMahon is a top heel when it comes to riling up the fans. The Boss Man is multi-talented, as he can handle the backstage drama as well as the live crowd drama.
