Vince McMahon is the Chairman of WWE and is one of the most controversial names in the pro wrestling world. He has given countless memorable moments throughout the years in WWE, but many also hate him. McMahon also suspended WWE talent for a very bizarre reason.
The WWE Chairman is beyond bizarre and many people simply cannot comprehend him. Others believe there is a method to his madness as well.
While speaking on his The Kurt Angle Show podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle revealed how one of the unsaid rules of the business is to thank the person back when they thank you. He recalled how Vince McMahon suspended a WWE talent for breaking the rule.
“You know, when you say thank you, and the person says, you’re welcome, that’s usually the proper way to say it. But in pro wrestling, when you say thank you, the other person is supposed to say thank you back. So it’s like, ‘thank you,’ ‘No, thank you.’ You don’t say you’re welcome.
“I was told one time a wrestler told Vince, Vince said, ‘Hey, thank you for the match tonight.’ He said, ‘You’re welcome’. Vince actually took him off the roster for about a month and basically suspended him for a month because he didn’t say thank you, he said, ‘You’re welcome.’”
Vince McMahon has his own share of peculiarities and fans simply have accepted them at this point in time. WWE employees have to abide by his rules and that is all that matters.
