Yeah he did that. There has never been anyone like Vince McMahon in the history of wrestling and there never will be again. McMahon was the definition of a one of a kind personality who was known for his odd quirks, including getting annoyed at things for no apparent reason. There have been several instances of single words driving McMahon crazy over the years and now we know another one.
During a recent edition of his Wrestling With Freddie podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. revealed that McMahon would get angry when someone used the word “strap” to refer to a championship during a promo. While McMahon would not allow the word “belt” to be used, the word “strap” would reportedly cause him to go into a rage, to the point where nothing else in the promo mattered to him. McMahon retired from WWE earlier this year after nearly 40 years in charge of the company.
Opinion: This is about as McMahon of a thing as you can get and I’m not remotely surprised. He has always been known for going off at a single word being wrong and that seems to be the case again. It’s another irrational thing from him, meaning it is added to what is already a rather long list. McMahon being gone does remove a lot of weirdness from WWE, the benefit of which remains to be seen.
