He’s in charge for a reason. Vince McMahon is a lot of things but there are two that stand out more than almost anything else. McMahon is both the most powerful man in the history of professional wrestling but also one of the most peculiar people in its history as well. Over the years there have been dozens of stories of McMahon just making a random decision about something that doesn’t make a ton of sense to anyone but him and just changes whatever is working for the wrestlers. That seems to be the case again, as a certain wrestler has explained how a McMahon quirk has changed something about him personally.
According to 411mania.com, a now deleted Twitter video showed Universal Champion Seth Rollins at an autograph signing where he was asked about his all white ring gear. Rollins was asked why he does not wear it any more and said that McMahon decided that he was no longer allowed to wear it. He described McMahon as “a weird old man” who didn’t get why people thought it was so cool. While he wasn’t sure what happened to the gear, Rollins said that he gave it to the WWE archivist so that it could be presented at events such as WWE Axxess.
Rollins has worn the gear on the big stage. Check out the attire in action against John Cena at Summerslam:
Opinion: This is such a classic (you may even say vintage) McMahon moment and the kind of thing that almost only he would think is a good idea. You can’t fault McMahon for having his quirks, but the all white attire was really cool and the kind of thing that I would like to have seen on the special occasions. It worked well at Summerslam against Cena and it would work well at a WrestleMania on the grandest stage of them all. I hope they literally bring it out of the archives as it is the kind of thing that feels special and should be used for big occasions. Unless you’re McMahon of course.
