• Former WWE Head Of Security Recalls Paul Heyman Wanting To Punch Vince McMahon

While speaking to Andrew Thompson, former WWE Head of Security, James Tillis recalled his unforgettable plane ride with Paul Heyman.

The journey panicked Heyman so much that he wanted to punch his boss, Vince McMahon, in the mouth.

Below is Tillis’ account of the incident:

“My scariest plane ride was we were on our way to Perth, Australia, and we started taking on — I think — there’s something going on where we had to get fuel and me and Paul Heyman were sitting next to each other, and we were near Siberia.

We had to land — I believe it was in Russia or a Russia outpost to get fuel in the middle of a snowstorm where they had to clear the tracks and they wouldn’t let us off the plane obviously, then we took off at unbelievably — it was almost at a 90 degree angle to get out of this snowstorm and Paul Heyman looks at me and he says to me, he goes, ‘If we get out of this alive’ because trust me when I tell you, we were circling and it was getting kind of close and you can ask Paul Heyman. He goes, ‘I’m gonna punch Vince [McMahon] in the mouth if I ever get out of this alive.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God.’”
