• “He demanded I cut cheesy heel promos” – Former WWE Star On Vince McMahon
In his book ‘MOX’, AEW Superstar Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) wrote about Vince McMahon starting to script his matches and how he didn’t like it.
Here’s what he wrote:
“He even went so far as to script my matches. They all sucked. He had begun to infiltrate the house shows now too, sending detailed formats to the stressed-out producers 30 minutes before bell time, and demanding I cut cheesy heel promos to the audience as I walked to the ring.
Seth and I tore the house down in a Steel Cage match that night at MSG, but for some reason Vince made us change the entire match on the rest of the loop to fit his vision, which was a less exciting, far sh*ttier version of a Steel Cage match.”
