Vince McMahon’s name is often associated with controversy in the world of professional wrestling. While some fans may find him eccentric and hard to comprehend, there’s no denying that his approach to the industry is shrewd and deliberate. Moreover, McMahon even once had an ex-WWE Superstar apologize to him after getting a haircut.

Vince McMahon’s unmatched commitment to the professional wrestling industry is widely acknowledged. As a renowned perfectionist, he consistently strives for excellence in his work, and his unwavering dedication is exemplified by his willingness to put his own body on the line when necessary. This unrelenting devotion to the sport has established him as an iconic figure in the industry.

A WWE wrestler’s physical appearance is intrinsically linked to their on-screen character and commercial prospects. Therefore, it’s understandable that Vince McMahon, who was responsible for the WWE roster, insisted on being consulted before any wrestlers made significant changes to their outward appearance.

Heath Slater had sported long red hair since his debut on the WWE main roster as part of The Nexus in 2010. However, in 2015, he chose to chop it off after ending his partnership with Slater Gator teammate Titus O’Neil.


While speaking with WSI, Slater talked about his decision to cut his hair. Slater then revealed that Vince McMahon wasn’t thrilled with him taking the step without talking to him about it, due to which he had to apologize to Vince McMahon.

“I just straight up told him. I said, ‘Vince, I was done with the long hair. I had it for years. It ran its course. I just want something different.’ I guess he understood. He was like, ‘You ever do anything drastic like that again, you gotta let me know first.’ I said, ‘Yeah, totally, sorry, my bad.’

Man, they weren’t doing nothing with me anyway at the time. My career is legit a rollercoaster ride. I’m on the highest of highs and I was on the lowest of lows. That was a time when I was at the lowest of lows. No one’s doing much with me. I’m just doing BS matches that don’t matter, and I said, ‘You know what, scr*w this, man, I’m just gonna change it up.’”

Vince McMahon was also once offered money by a WWE Superstar’s sugar daddy to make her a champion. McMahon will continue to have his own fair share of peculiarities and that is unlikely to ever change.
