• Former WWE Writer On Why Employees Are Scared Of Vince McMahon

During a recent interview with Jordan Garber, former WWE writer Jimmy Jacobs talked about WWE employees being scared of Vince McMahon.

Below is what he said:

“When I first got to WWE, I wasn’t scared of Vince. I just thought, ‘He’s a dude.’ Maybe a billionaire, but a billionaire dude and everybody was scared of him so I was asking why is everybody scared of Vince?

After working there for a month or two, I see why everybody is scared of him.

So, I spent the majority of my time there basically scared of Vince and ultimately afraid of losing my job.

It wasn’t until the last couple of months of my time there where I was so sick of feeling just tied and boxed up that I wasn’t scared of getting fired anymore, which is what I spent most of my time doing.

Maybe I would last longer if I wasn’t scared of Vince. It’s his sandbox…He’s just letting you play in it.”
