Charlie Haas Claims Vince McMahon Sees A Certain Type Of Wrestling As “An Added Expense”

Vince McMahon

Former WWE Superstar Charlie Haas has claimed that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon doesn’t like a certain form of wrestling that he thinks costs more money.

Charlie Haas made his WWE debut in December 2002 alongside Shelton Benjamin as part of Team Angle. Haas and Benjamin were a gift from Paul Heyman to his then client and WWE Champion Kurt Angle as part of a ploy to keep the title on Angle for as long as possible.

In February Haas and Benjamin found success of their own as they defeated Los Guerreros to become WWE Tag Team Champions for the first time. Together Haas and Benjamin held that title twice while Charlie Haas held it later in his WWE career with Rico as well.

Speaking on the ‘It’s My Wrestling Podcast, Charlie Haas claims that tag team wrestling is not something WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is a fan of:

“Vince doesn’t like tag team wrestling, he looks at it as an added expense, as paying for an extra guy on road. An extra guy in the hotel room. He really doesn’t like it and he changed a lot of it over the years.”

The last time a two on two match main evented a WWE pay-per-view was in December 2019 when The Kabuki Warriors put their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship on the line against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch in a TLC match, with Asuka and Kairi Sane retaining their gold.

Haas continued talking about his own love for tag team wrestling, saying that he was a fan of some of the greatest teams of all time before finding himself a tag team specialist:

“When you’re talking about 2002 with the tag teams I think that was a great time. When I was a kid growing up in the 80s got to watch Arn and Tully, Rock n Roll Express, Midnight Express, The Fantastics, The Guerreros, The Dynamic Duo. Those tag teams meant something you know?”

“If I’m forgetting anyone, I’m sorry. The tag teams meant something I felt when we were there too, but that’s all passion. I love the Tag Team stuff you know, I was a fan of it before I became one.”
