“We would have a promo class. And every week, we would have to do a promo. It would be like, if you want to do something about this, you got that right here. You have to pick anything and you have to cut a promo on it.”

Truth has accompanied Vince on several overseas trips. Even during the trips, McMahon was taking notes to ensure he can reflect on them and be better at what he does.

“I’ve been on so many trips with Vince overseas to Iraq, Afghanistan. Wherever the military is that doing so and just watching him be Vince I learned the other way. I learned just by him telling me hey, you should be taking notes on this and he loves to take notes. You know, just being around Vince, if you don’t learn, shame on you.”

“We’ve had so many times we’ve laughed, where we almost cried like laughing. But, Vince is like one of the most down to earth people. Being on those tours with him, going to shake the military economy, you will find that we’re bonding those times. There’s times we were overseas and in the military and had mortar shutters we had to bunker down. I’ve been on submarines with Vince, I’ve been on war ships with Vince. I’ve seen him sleep.”
