With no choice left, Regal got down on his knees and reluctantly kissed Mr. McMahon’s butt. However, what stood out from the segment was when McMahon handed a lip balm to Regal before he kissed.

Good Ol’ JR

McMahon not only pushed the WWE wrestlers but also let the voice of wrestling, Jim Ross, get a taste of his luxurious backside.

On an episode of Raw on November 26, 2001, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the hometown of Jim Ross. McMahon initially planned to add ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin into his club. However, Austin left the ring after delivering a ‘low-blow’ to the owner.

However, things turned sideways for JR when McMahon caught him laughing after seeing what Austin did to the chairman. As McMahon got into the piston of getting his rear kissed, Undertaker broke the segment and entered the ring.

Surprisingly, Undertaker didn’t save Ross. Instead, he joined hands with McMahon and made JR kiss Vince’s backside in front of his hometown.

Shawn Michaels also joined the club

On an episode of Raw on February 27, 2006, in Washington DC, McMahon made the future WWE Hall of Famer, Shawn Michaels, kiss his a**. Something nobody would’ve imagined happening.

Shawn Michaels’ old tag team partner, Marty Jannetty, came out and begged McMahon to give him a job, to which McMahon’s appropriate answer was to unbutton his pants and make Marty the third installment.

However, Michaels came out to save his old pal but was nailed down by a steel chair by Shane McMahon. Vince then once again revealed his bottom for the world to see, as Shane McMahon lifted Michael’s lifeless body up and forced his lips onto his dad’s rear-end.

Even the prodigal son, Shane McMahon, became a victim

By this point, McMahon did not just resort to verbal communication to make the wrestlers join his club. Eventually, Shawn Michaels faced each other at WrestleMania 22, 2006, in Chicago, Illinois.

However, Shane McMahon was the one who kissed his own father’s rear this time. During the match, it was planned that Shane would attack Michaels and make him kiss Vince’s backside again. However, while McMahon was flexing his glutes, Michaels turned the table and made Shane kiss it.

Hardcore legend, Mick Foley

Foley became the second person to willingly put down his lips on Vince’s body since the inaugural admission of William Regal. However, he was put in a difficult position for this one.

On an episode of WWE Raw, August 21, 2006, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Foley joined the club to save Melina’s job, becoming the first member to willingly join since Regal, by planting a long kiss directly on Vince’s bare a**.

However, Melina quickly betrayed him afterward, and Foley got fired himself.

Even Hornswoggle was the victim

On an episode of WWE Raw, February 6, 2008, in Austin, Texas, even Hornswoggle became an unfortunate member of McMahon’s infamous club in WWE.

During the segment, McMahon ruthlessly embarrassed his so-called “illegitimate child”, Hornswoggle in front of the crowd. Eventually, bending down to Hornswoggle’s height to make him kiss it; however, Finlay made his entrance.
