Top 15 Wrestlers That Vince McMahon Gave Preferential Treatment

Wrestling in the WWE is a dream for most aspiring wrestlers hoping to make it in the business. The term dream job is thrown around very frequently but to end up doing something you loved as a child and developed a true passion for is second to none. The WWE has been the biggest wrestling entity for decades and is the promotion everyone hopes to work due to both financial success and personal goal. While it is a tremendous job on the surface, the biggest downfall to working for WWE is dealing with the politics of getting everyone to like you.

There’s one specific person that every wrestler hopes to earn the respect of: Vince McMahon. He has been the most powerful man in the wrestling industry ever since he started putting together his vision of changing WWE from a successful wrestling company into a successful global brand. Despite growing older, McMahon is still the main person in charge of the company and his influence is second to none. History has taught us that McMahon will take an extra interest in anyone he deems to be a huge star or who has the potential to blossom into one.

Various top wrestlers have developed a beneficial relationship with McMahon. It will lead to perks both in and out of the ring. The political game is a win when McMahon is in one’s corner. The wrestlers to have McMahon backing them have been given special treatment comparative to their peers in the locker room. Money, fame and success is likely to either come or continue if a wrestler has the most powerful voice’s support. Some of these wrestlers have abused this power and have led to negative results to harm the company, but they sure made for great stories. We’ll take a look at these moments and break down the top fifteen wrestlers that Vince McMahon gave preferential treatment to.

The wrestler to receive the most preferential treatment from Vince McMahon has to be Triple H. From his days in The Kliq to marrying Stephanie McMahon, Triple H has always had power in the WWE. The son-in-law of the owner receiving special treatment is a given but Triple H’s power was unlike any other in wrestling. The years of 2002-2005 were dominated by Triple H in the title picture and holding the main event heel spot on Raw. Various stars with momentum such as Rob Van Dam, Booker T and Goldberg fell to the reign of doom by Triple H. More recently, CM Punk believes Triple H played a role in placing a ceiling on his career and is definitely a factor in why he walked out of the company. Triple H has been given more responsibility, influence and preferential treatment by Vince McMahon than any other wrestler in WWE history.
