• WWF Legend Credits Shane McMahon For Coming Up With His Finisher
During a recent interview with GOW Media 216, Old School WWF Legend The Godfather (fka Papa Shango) spoke about his ‘Ho Train’ finisher and revealed that it was Vince McMahon’s son Shane McMahon who came up with it during the famous Attitude Era.
Here’s what the 2016 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“I don’t know, calling it the Ho Train, I don’t know who came up with that. Me having girls was me, but the move the Ho Train, Shane McMahon came up with that. But I don’t know who came up with calling the girls the Ho Train.
But Shane was like, ‘when you do that splash, you should do something where you shoot them in and wind up, you remember Soul Train? You should do it like, Ho Train,’ and I was like, ‘okay, I’ll try it.’
The name Ho Train, I don’t know who came up with that, probably me, or my wife, my wife comes up with a lot of that.”
Charles Wright wrestled on WWF TV as The Godfather from 1998 until 2002, except for a short period of time in 2000/2001, where he was known as Right To Censor member The Goodfather.
His previous gimmicks Papa Shango (1992-1993), Kama (1995-1996) and Kama Mustafa (1997-1998) were entertaining as well, but it’s the controversial (Non-PG) Godfather character he will always be remembered for.
