• “I’m not even sh*tting you” – Dana White Reveals Where WWE Made Him Sit At WrestleMania 34
During a recent press conference, UFC President Dana White talked about Vince McMahon’s retirement from WWE.
Vince, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H & Pat McAfee attended UFC 276 (which took place on the same night and in the same area as Money In The Bank 2022) and Dana was asked if he met Vince at this PPV.
White went on to note that he gave the McMahons way better seats than what they gave him at WrestleMania 34 in 2018, when he attended the show to watch UFC Hall Of Famer Ronda Rousey’s WWE in-ring debut.
Below is what Dana said:
“They reached out to me and said that he wanted to come to the fight. I gave him much better seats than he gave me when I went to see Ronda. That dude had me in the f**king, I’m not even sh*tting you…
Ronda says, ‘You have to be at this event. I want you to be there.’ I said, ‘Ronda, I wouldn’t miss it for the world.’ She’s like, ‘Alright, I’m gonna let them know you’re coming.’ Cool, cool. I show up, it’s in New Orleans. I fly down to f**king New Orleans. No going in the back and any of that sh*t.
They’re at the will call window for you. I go to the f**king will call window, and, ‘Yeah, we don’t have tickets for you.’ I call some people, ‘Oh yeah, we found them, okay, we got your tickets.’
When I tell you, we were in the f**king rafters, people were coming up to me and going, ‘Why are you sitting in these seats?’ I said, ‘Well, this is where they sat me. So f**k ‘em, I’m gonna sit right here.’
Then I think it was Pat McAfee that says, ‘Well, no, you had to be in decent seats. You were on camera.’ The cameraman had to f**king crawl over about 75 people, kick somebody out of his f**king seat three rows ahead of me, just so he could get that shot. Yeah, they let me know what they thought of me at that event.”
When a reporter said things might be better now that Stephanie McMahon & Triple H are in charge, Dana said:
“Triple H and Stephanie were there too. It’s not like it was just Vince. This wasn’t 25 years ago, this was like f**king two years ago.”
