WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is 75-year-old, but he refuses to miss a single taping of WWE programming and has continued to work despite the threat of COVID-19. McMahon continues to be in phenomenal shape, and he is still ready to take the big bumps.
It was reported earlier this year that Vince McMahon himself took a bump from the top of a platform, in order to convince Rob Gronkowski to take the bump.
Gronkowski, who served as the host of WrestleMania 36, took the bump during the event, where he won the 24/7 Championship.
WWE confirmed those reports by releasing footage of McMahon showing a hesitant Gronkowski how to do it, by taking the bump himself. The footage will be a part of WWE 24 around the first-ever empty arena WrestleMania.
Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre and Rhea Ripley talked about how their boss isn’t afraid to take the nasty bumps and stand out as an example for his talents.
“The boss will not ask you to do anything that he’s not willing to do himseLF. He doesn’t always have to prove it, but sometimes he wants to. ‘You don’t have to.’ Okay, he’s gonna do it anyway.” Drew McIntyre
Vince McMahon was announced for SmackDown this week, as he will be opening the show at the WWE ThunderDome, which will be a completely unique experience for the fans in midst of the pandemic.
