WWE Hall of Fame member Road Dogg discussed Vince McMahon and the WWE’s current creative modifications. In one noteworthy exchange, Dogg described telling McMahon everybody was frightened of him. I tried to tell him, Everyone is terrified of you, sir, Dogg said. Noticeably, McMahon’s reaction to these words caused Dogg to rethink his opinion of the WWE CEO.
McMahon responded, Well, that’s on them because I’ve haven’t ever done anything at all to scare anybody, as per Dogg. Dogg considered the genuine truth in McMahon’s words as he absorbed McMahon’s response. I considered it, but he did not. He’s never beaten anyone. He never yelled or threw his phone at anyone, according to Dogg. He never threw anything or pushed anyone up against the wall, as far as I know.
Nonetheless, the truth in McMahon’s response caused Dogg to come to an even bigger realisation. So, I had to ask myself, Is his presence terrifying? and the answer to that is yes, Dogg says. As such, my point is that he was led by fear, but he didn’t mean to. He simply had a powerful aura. McMahon officially retired as WWE Chairman and CEO last month following a slew of harassment claims. Dogg worked as an NXT producer prior to his release in January.
Vince McMahon and Donald Trump
It’s well known that Vince McMahon and Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, have a long history dating back over 3 decades. McMahon & Trump first collaborated on company in the mid-1980s, at the dawn of WrestleMania. WrestleMania IV and V were held at Trump’s Atlantic City establishments, and their friendship grew over the years to the point where Trump became a figure on WWE programming, even shaving McMahon’s head at WrestleMania 23.
In 2013, Trump was incorporated into the WWE Hall of Fame. McMahon continued to back Trump after he was elected president. After the 2016 election, all of the McMahons visited the White House, and Linda McMahon, who did run for Senate in 2012, was assigned to Trump’s administration as Small Business Administrator from 2017 to 2019.
Both men are now the targets of high-profile investigations. The Justice Department is investigating Trump’s role in the January 6 White House riots, and his home in Mar-a-Lago has recently been raided by the FBI, which was reportedly looking for nuclear documents. In the meantime, McMahon has been the subject of Wall Street Journal reporting that claims he paid billions of dollars to numerous women to cover up accusations of sexual misconduct, which could have led to his untimely retirement from WWE.
