A former WWE writer has opened up about travelling with Vince and Linda McMahon and noted that the husband and wife didn’t have a lot to say to each other.
Vince McMahon has long been seen as an intimidating figure so imagine Court Bauer’s consternation when he was put on a private jet with the former WWE Chairman and his wife Linda during the first week of working at WWE.
Speaking on AdFreeShows, current MLW owner Court Bauer reflected on that experience and says he enjoyed Linda McMahon’s conversation:
“We had a show in Las Vegas. ‘You’re going to be on the corporate jet. You’re going to Vegas,’ … I had no idea who was on this jet. I get on the jet and I see Vince and Linda and as soon as I get on, the accordion stairs flip up and I sit down. Oh sh*t. It’s me and the McMahons, we’re flying to Vegas.”
“I had lovely discussions and conversations with Linda and she just, she could talk about anything. [Vince and Linda] didn’t really talk to each other, which was interesting.”
Bauer then explained how Vince McMahon quickly launched into work talk, and the two of them worked on shows, much to the unhappiness of the creative team that had originally written them:
“Then he was like, ‘Well, you have the show, let’s go over it’ … He just went through the shows and would ask once in a while what I thought of something and would change up shows and I said, ‘Oh, this is great’ … I go in [to the creative meeting], I say, ‘Hey guys. Nice to meet you. I’m Court Bauer, made some changes to the show and we’re going to go through it,’ and as soon as it came out of my mouth, I’m like, ‘Sh*t,’ and I see their faces. They’re looking at me and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m the a**hole you’re going to hate.'”
