R-Truth – “If You Don’t Learn From Vince McMahon, Shame On You”

R-Truth Vince McMahon

WWE Superstar and perennial 24/7 Champion R-Truth has discussed working with Vince McMahon and says the WWE Chairman is very giving to those in the company.

R-Truth is in his second spell with WWE which began all the way back in 2008. In that time Truth has held the WWE United States Championship as well as the WWE Tag Team Championship and is incredibly a 52-time 24/7 Champion.

Speaking on the Battleground Podcast, R-Truth discussed what it’s like being around Vince McMahon and says if you don’t learn from being around McMahon then you’ve only yourself to blame:

“He taught me confidence and assurance. I’ve done so many trips with Vince overseas, Iraq, Afghanistan, wherever the military was at. Being around Vince, if you don’t learn, shame on you.”

“We’ve had so many times that we laughed until we almost cried. Vince is one of the most down-to-earth people. Being on those tours with him, whether it was the Air Force, Marines, Army, we met them all and shaked hands. We bonded during those times. There were times we were overseas and mortars were shot at us and we had to bunker down. I’ve been on submarines with Vince. I’ve been on warships with Vince.”

R-Truth then elaborated on how he manages to connect with the WWE Chairman with plenty of stories of WWE Superstars past and present mentioning how intimidating McMahon can be:

“He told me he likes the fact that I’m just me and I come straight forward. Vince is giving, and I have the highest amount of respect for Vince. Vince is also a friend. He wants to be there for you. He wants you to come and ask him things. If you have an idea, come to him. He makes himself very accessible to you.”

“He intimidates a lot of people. He attracts me. Just like my aura. I may intimidate a lot of people if you see me coming down a dark alley at night. I’m walking a certain way and I may intimidate you, but once you get to know me, you’re like, ‘Oh my God. This guy gave me the shirt off his back.’ That’s Vince McMahon. I sat under that learning tree for a long time and I soaked it in. I didn’t let any of it go to waste.”
