WWE is as much about controversies as it is about wrestling. Over the years, fans saw so many disputes happening inside or outside the ring. The consistent frequency of issues has led to this phenomenon being the norm now. It is more so because the former head of the company Vince McMahon himself has invited a lot of controversies.

Among many infamous storylines in history, one of the most notorious was McMahon’s ‘kiss my A** club’. McMahon founded this club to make superstars demonstrate their loyalty toward him in the crudest way possible. The then-CEO forced his talent to kiss his rear during live shows.

The creepy club had its roots back in 2001 at the end of the Attitude era when a fired William Regal was asked to kiss McMahon’s bare a** as a condition for continuing further with the wrestling promotion.

Everybody has to do whatever he says, whether it’s kissing somebody’s ass or … nevermind,”

Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts even didn’t refrain from calling the entire idea of such a practice, ‘as low as you could get’ when Co-host DeAngelo, too, derided so.

The WWE Hall of Famer recently made his return to Tony Khan’s company, marking his in-ring comeback. McMahon was notorious for creating absurd ideas for programming, but fans can be thankful that this storyline didn’t hit the screens.
