Vince McMahon Angle “As Low As You Could Get” Says WWE Hall Of Famer
WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts has expressed his incredulity at one of Vince McMahon’s more controversial ideas, calling it “as low as you could get.”
At Survivor Series 2001, the ill-fated Invasion angle came to an end in WWE but on Raw the following night, something new was introduced to WWE fans as Vince McMahon invited William Regal – previously The Alliance’s Commissioner – to keep his job joining the Vince McMahon Kiss My Ass Club, something that Regal eventually did.
In the years that followed, Jim Ross, Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, Hornswoggle, and even Shane McMahon all joined the Club with most of those admissions being forced.
Speaking on his Snake Pit podcast, current AEW star Jake Roberts began by explaining how he saw the potential of Vince McMahon as a villainous character as far back as the late eighties:
“Absolutely. Why couldn’t he make himself a top heel? He’s got his hand on the business. Everybody has to do whatever he says, whether it’s kissing somebody’s ass or … nevermind.”
Roberts’ co-host picked up on his choice of words as he derided the infamous ‘Vince McMahon Kiss My Ass Club,’ an idea that Roberts also did not like, as he added:
“That was about as low as you could get.”
Jake Roberts recently returned to AEW television by the side of Lance Archer as he also returned to the ring after a prolonged absence and he also revealed a new role he is fulfilling in the company.
