Mike Chioda recalls Vince McMahon taking over a ring truck

Mike Chioda narrated that they were in Richfield, Ohio, where they stopped for drinks. As Chioda recalled the incident, Vince got hammered at the Holiday Inn bar and was rather inebriated. He further revealed, “Vince said, ‘Hey Mike. Where’s the ring truck?’ I said, ‘It’s right outside in the parking lot sir.’ It was snowing and ‘there was a ton of snow from before. It was snowing at night.”

“It was freezing because it was November at that time. Next thing you know, Vince is like, ‘Give me the god da*n keys to the truck Mike.’ I was like, ‘Yeah sure boss. No problem.’

“I gave him the keys, and he said, ‘Ok, come with me.’ I look at Chimel (Tony Chimel). He was over at the table. I told Chimel, ‘Vince has the keys to the truck.’ He said, ‘Why the f*ck did you give him the keys to the truck?’ Me and Chimel came out.”

“Now we’re in the truck with Vince. He’s doing donuts with this 20-foot truck with a sleeper cab. He’s shifting gears and saying, ‘God da*n it. Can’t this go any faster?’ I said, ‘Yea, if you’re going down the highway.’ I swear he almost tipped the truck two or three times. I thought he was going to capsize the truck.” [h/t Wrestlingnews.co]
