The Godfather has discussed which McMahon was responsible for one of his most memorable moves in the ring, the uniquely named “Ho Train.”
When Charles Wright donned his colourful waistcoats and feather-adorned hat in the late nineties, The Godfather was born and proved an instant hit with the Attitude Era crowd in no small part thanks to the gaggle of beautiful women that the WWE Hall Of Famer surrounded himself with.
The affectionately named “hoes” became ubiquitous with The Godfather and he took their presence into the ring with him with one of his signature moves named after them.
Speaking to GOW Media 216 The Godfather revealed that it was a McMahon that came up with the idea that the former Nation Of Domination member’s corner splash could become a lot more memorable:
“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.”
The Ho Train kept chugging along and took The Godfather to success as a WWE Intercontinental Champion and an induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2016. Choo Choo!
