Vince McMahon knows what he likes and more to the point, knows what he doesn’t like and now Jim Cornette has revealed another phrase that features on McMahon’s banned list.
Wrestler, belts, hospital, and title shots, are all words and phrases not heard often – if at all – on WWE television and it’s all down to the likes and dislikes of Executive Chairman Vince McMahon.
Speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, the veteran manager explained that another of McMahon’s quirks was loathing the phrase “catch a quick one” in terms of one wrestler getting a sudden pinfall out of nowhere in a match:
“Vince hates that – that’s another Vince McMahon banned term.
“In the old days, when you weren’t completely sure that guys were gonna agree to going along with doing a job, the booker or whoever was doing the finish would go up to the f**king guy and he’d say, ‘Look, you take most of the match, boom boom boom, get some f**king steam on him, whatever, he’ll make a comeback and then let him catch a quick one. Just catch a quick one.’
“Which means roll you up, or some little quick pin 1-2-3 and you’re fine. And that’s kind of the way that you would talk a guy into it if he was reticent. And Vince McMahon hates that. ‘Catch a quick one, that’s bulls**t’. (Laughs).”
Vince McMahon also reportedly didn’t like some aspects of plans for a recent Monday Night Raw, with the belief being he was behind last-minute changes to the show.
