Konnan has recalled how he witnessed an altercation between Vince McMahon and Ultimate Warrior which made him realise how much money the latter must have been making for the former.
The host of Keepin’ It 100 would open up to SK Wrestling about how the former WWE Champion would be “going off” at the CEO, with McMahon telling Ultimate Warrior to calm down.
“It’s funny because I do remember one time, and this is so wild, they used to have these little soundproof rooms where you’d do interviews like regionalized things and it was really late at night. I remember Ultimate Warrior was coming out of the soundproof and he was saying, ‘F*** this, f*** that, I’m not doing it, it’s too late’. And Vince was like ‘Whatever you want, just calm down, whatever you need, we can do it late tomorrow’ and I was like, ‘Wow, how much money must Ultimate Warrior be making for Vince’ that Vince was like, ‘Calm down’? And he was just going off.”
Ultimate Warrior passed away on April 8th, 2014 – having been inducted into the WWE hall of Fame three days earlier, before appearing at WrestleMania XXX and then delivering a promo on the RAW after Mania in his final public appearance.
Konnan would also speak of his own relationship with Vince McMahon.
“He was real cool with me, very cool with me, because I was new to the business, he really didn’t know me and we had good rapport.”
