He said “We’re flying one time into White Plains, like a short flight, like Boston or somewhere. The pilot comes back and says, ‘Sir, I’m fearless.’ The guy wasn’t scared, but he said, ‘I would not fly into this. There’s no visibility.’ Vince looked up and said, ‘So when you get that uniform, you lose your ba**s?’” [h/t: WrestlingNews.co]
