If you’ve been a professional wrestler for any reasonable length of time you’re going to have seen some truly bizarre things. If you ever worked for Vince McMahon, the chances of seeing the scarcely believable increased ten-fold, just ask Seth Rollins.
Back in 2019 Rollins hosted an Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit where he fielded questions from fans. At the time Rollins was preparing to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 after winning the Royal Rumble.
Seth Rollins Recalls Bizarre Vince McMahon Story
During the Q&A one fan asked the star for his best Vince McMahon story, and Rollins didn’t disappoint. The United States Champion recalled being invited onto a private jet surrounded by John Cena, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan as Vince McMahon blasted Nickelback over the speakers.
“The first time I ever rode on the corporate jet was an incredible cast of characters. Just as an example, at the front of the plane was a nice little four-seat area that had Vince, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and John Cena. We walked up to the plane to board it, and Vince was standing at the bottom of the stairway into the plane.
He had his full suit on, jacket was off, but he was standing with his hands on his hips and his chest all puffed out, with the biggest smile I’ve ever seen on his face, just so proud. And inside the jet, you could see the red, disco lights flashing off and on, and he was blaring Nickelback, and the flight attendant was presenting food on a tray. It was so very Vince-ish in the most wonderfully extravagant way.”
On the same thread Rollins also shared another hilarious music-related story which saw a former tag team partner replace their theme by Killswitch Engage with Black Eyed Peas ‘My Humps’ just before the star came flying through the curtain.
