• Vince McMahon Paid WWF Wrestler Only $100 For WrestleMania 13 Because He Was Mad At Him
At WrestleMania 13 in 1997, J.C. Ice (of the tag team PG-13) appeared in the corner of The Nation Of Domination, when NOD faced Legion Of Doom & Ahmed Johnson.
WWF Veteran Dutch Mantell (Uncle Zebekiah / Zeb Colter) revealed on his YouTube show that Vince McMahon paid only $100 to J.C. Ice for this WrestleMania appearance because he was mad at him.
Below is what Dutch said:
“And you know what [J.C. Ice] got paid on that pay-per-view because Vince got mad at him for being an idiot? $100. That’s what he actually got paid.
Even managers back in those days, you’d get at least five, six, or seven thousand dollars just to walk to the ring. Maybe not that much, but he got mad at him, and he gave him 100 dollars. And what’s Jamie going to do, b*tch and complain? He is looking for a spot to get rid of him anyway.
He showed up thirty minutes before the show started and still owed the guy like a $700 cab bill. And he told the cab guy, wait, I’ll get you your money, and the taxi cab driver never saw Jamie again.
I think they got the guy paid somehow because the guy raised so much hell he wanted his money. And they knew Jamie was there at that time.”
