• Why Vince McMahon Wanted To Hide Papa Shango’s Face In The WWF
WWE Hall Of Famer Charles Wright’s most popular character in the WWF might be The Godfather.
However, in the early 1990s, he was Papa Shango.
During an appearance on The A2theKWrestling Show, Charles explained why Vince McMahon wanted Papa Shango to wear face paint.
Below is what he said:
“[Vince] says, ‘You have a body of a monster, but you have a baby face’, and he goes, ‘We’ve got to do something with that face’.
That (face paint) was Vince, hiding my baby face.”
As Papa Shango, Charles got involved in the WrestleMania 8 main event in 1992, when he interfered in the Hulk Hogan vs. Sid Justice match.
