Vince McMahon is still running the show at 72 years old and it doesn’t look like he’s stopping anytime soon. As the intergalactic Supreme Leader of the WWE Universe, his word is final and we’re just his humble subjects. Our Supreme Leader has been known to get vexed from time to time. When he does get mad, it’s usually justified, however, he can snap at a moment for the silliest reasons you can think of.
This list is made up of events that happened in the last few years. Whether on an episode of Raw or Pay-Per-View, we'll showcase the biggest blow-ups Vince had backstage. No one can hide from McMahon’s wrath unless your name is John Cena. Fans have seen McMahon get upset on television, just imagine what he’s like off-screen. No one wants to be in his cross-hairs when he’s looking to chew out someone. You may go from a verbal mud-stomping to be floated out of an airlock in space.
We joke around about McMahon’s power, but it is true to an extent. The guy can go off on someone at the whim of a moment. Do you think some of the moments on this list deserve a furious criticism? Enjoy.
15 Neville Walking Out Before An Episode Of Raw
The King of the Cruiserweights run was one of, if not, the best thing to happen to Neville while on the main roster. He was billed as an indestructible force but would be booked to lose to Enzo Amore in 2017. We’ve learned Neville wasn’t happy with his role and rumors were swirling around about him asking for his release after no-showing an episode of Raw.
14 Braun Uses Non-WWE Language
Braun Strowman’s push is a welcomed sight in the WWE Universe. He organically got over, went from a monster heel to hilarious babyface with some attitude and the whole transition wasn’t forced. People tune in to watch the big man show off his freakish strength and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
13 LaVar & His Family Go Off Script
It’s a Ball’s world and we’re just living in it. The Balls have blown up since Lonzo Ball was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers last year. Lonzo, with his father LaVar and younger brother LaMelo, have been on many shows promoting their brand. WWE decided to capitalize on the Balls while being in their hometown of L.A. Vince McMahon would book the Balls in a segment with The Miz on an episode of Raw.
12 Bullet Club Invasion
In 1998, a rambunctious group would invade their enemies’ territory changing the Monday Night Wars for the better. D-Generation X would bullhorn WCW at the arena they were in during an episode of Raw. It was another risk Vince McMahon would take in his war with Ted Turner and the move paid off. The war is done and peace has been known throughout the land since the 1990s.
11 The Revival Use The Term "Professional Wrestlers"
Several years ago, a list of words banned by the WWE in 2008 was leaked to the world. Some of these words include feud, war, hospital, and performer. Another word found on the list was “pro wrestling.” Fast track to today and some of these words still may be banned. The Revival recently cut a promo and said, “We’re not sports entertainers, we are professional wrestlers.” Now that may not seem like a big deal to the fans, but for Vince McMahon, it crossed a line.
10 AJ Styles' Sneaks A Peek
Tables, Ladders, and Chairs is known to be a high-risk event, however, the WWE Universe wasn’t prepared for what they witnessed back in 2016. Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles would put on a great match but it was overshadowed by Style’s wardrobe malfunction. His pants would split and a hole would open on the backside.
James Ellsworth recently revealed that McMahon was furious at the ordeal backstage yelling at the camera men to change angles away from the rip. It wasn’t something you could just hide and the production crew went into a fury trying to cut away from the exposed rear end.
After the match, Styles would tweet, “ As you can see by the seam, you all were in no danger of seeing my butthole.” Although fans didn’t witness a ton of flesh, it was enough to make the big guy, Vince McMahon, get upset backstage.
9 Goldberg Cuts Promo While Clearly Hurt
Vince McMahon gambled bringing Goldberg back in 2016 but the move paid off and the fans got to see a legend go out the way he wanted to. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any bumps and hiccups during the whole process. Vince McMahon reportedly blew up on Goldberg after an episode of Raw in 2017.
8 No Love For Bayley
In August of last year, Bayley would come appear on Monday Night Raw and tell the WWE Universe that an injury would keep her out of SummerSlam. It was supposed to be a touching moment among Bayley and her fans, however, things got really strange. Bayley is used to the fans asking for her to be "their girl" but something was off during that night last summer. While being interviewed in the middle of the ring, fans began to boo during her promo.
7 Roman Fails Wellness Policy
When news broke of Roman Reigns failing the WWE Wellness Policy in 2016, many people wanted to know Vince McMahon’s first reaction. Different reports have been published about his reaction but most will say he felt very disappointed in his top dog. Can you blame McMahon? He put all his chips on the table and pushed Reigns to the moon, even after the WWE Universe let him know how they feel.
6 A Phone Call By The Rock
When The Rock came back to the WWE in 2017 for a one-night appearance on Raw, he did not disappoint. The most electrifying man in sports entertainment would once again make the headlines. The Rock would go off script and begin to interact with the crowd. From interviewing fans dressed up as legends to cracking hilarious jokes, The Rock was cooking. He also pulled off one of the greatest impromptu moments in wrestle… or should we say sports entertainment history.
5 Owens & Jericho At WrestleMania 33
WrestleMania 33 had a lot of highlights and memories that will last forever, however, one wrestler felt he didn’t do as well as he should have. The WWE Universe would be treated with a WWE 365 documentary involving Kevin Owens experience from SummerSlam 2016 to WrestleMania 33. Owens would be in a significant feud with his former mentor and hero, Chris Jericho, which culminated at WrestleMania 33.
4 Titus Grabs Vince
In early 2016, the WWE decided to have a farewell segment for Daniel Bryan on an episode of Raw. The entire WWE roster would leave the backstage and come out to congratulate the storied career of the American Dragon. As the camera panned and the shot faded away, fans witnessed Titus O’Neil trying to horse around with Vince McMahon.
3 Goldberg Booed During Paul Heyman Promo
Only Vince McMahon would think a wrestler who was born, raised, and billed from a certain city would be booed by fans of that city because WWE said so. McMahon would bring back Bill Goldberg in 2016 and the main goal was to book him in a feud with Brock Lesnar. Goldberg was supposed to be the face while Lesnar would play the heel.
2 Nakamura Drops Cena On His Neck
Shinsuke Nakamura won the 2018 Royal Rumble and will go on to face AJ Styles at WrestleMania 34 for the WWE Championship and we know the WWE Universe is pumped up for the match. If you were reading the headlines in August of 2017, you may have thought Nakamura becoming the first Japanese wrestler to win the Royal Rumble was just a fairy tale.
1 Last Night With Enzo
When you’re the face of a program for a billion dollar company and you don’t tell them about your legal troubles, it might bite you later on. Just look at what happened to Enzo Amore. The guy was pushed to the moon in the 205 Live division and had everything going for him. He decided to not let his employers know about a lawsuit that claims he abused a lady in 2017.
WWE found out the night of their 25 Anniversary of Raw. The company thought they would field questions about legends and segments for the night but were caught off guard when asked about Amore’s troubles. Let's just say McMahon was heated about the ordeal. So heated, he made Enzo vacate his Cruiserweight Championship and fired him.
