It’s what he does. There is no one in the wrestling world like Vince McMahon. The most powerful person in the wrestling world, McMahon is someone who is among the most unique people you will find anywhere. The bizarre stories about McMahon are among the most well known in wrestling and now there is another one which involves a member of the WWE Hall Of Fame.
WWE Hall Of Famer Rob Van Dam appeared on Busted Open Radio and told a story about how he was chosen as part of the 2021 Hall Of Fame class. Van Dam was told by Michael Hayes that McMahon thought Van Dam would be a perfect inductee into the Hall Of Fame. Hayes told McMahon that Van Dam was not in, prompting McMahon to put him in that year’s class immediately.
Opinion: Is it really surprising that McMahon was missing one of the bigger names his company has ever seen in the Hall Of Fame? Probably not, as he has a lot on his mind, but it is such a McMahon story. You can picture reality setting in for him as he suddenly understands that he can have what he wants with no additional work and now Van Dam has been honored as he should. At least it worked out for everyone at once.
