It would seem that Vince McMahon was left with a rather nasty injury following a dramatic spot he performed back in 1999.
Alongside the surprise of ‘The Big Show’ Paul Wight making his WWE debut at the conclusion of the match, it is often remember for the fall McMahon took from the top of the steel structure, which sent him crashing through the announce desk on the outside.
On the latest edition of Wrestling Outlaws, Vince Russo discussed the dramatic stunt from Vince McMahon, and how how the fall clearly didn’t go to plan.
The great Richie Posner, I’d have a whole chapter of him in my book, but Brian [Road Dogg], it was Vince’s first bump he ever took off the cage. Do you remember this? I think it was a St. Valentine’s Day Massacre or something like that, whatever, but Vince actually took a bump off the cage and landed on his a** and landed wrong. He took the bump wrong.
So, Brian, after the match, everybody leaves, we’re out by the cage, and he calls Richie over. And he’s like, ‘Richie, we talked about this, and you were supposed to have this set up.’ And Richie sits there and says, ‘No, Vince, it was set up perfectly; you missed it, Vince. You missed it, Vince!’
Vince Russo went on to discuss the extent of the injury suffered by McMahon that evening.
Bro, Vince was getting so red in the face, and I’m giving Richie the iggy, like, ‘Bro, would you stop?’ He’d say, ‘Na, bro, Vince, it was perfect.’ And Vince was getting so red in the face. Do you know Brian, from that bump, Vince’s entire a** was black & blue? Linda made him go to the doctor because he wouldn’t. But he showed us pictures, and the entire thing was a…argh!
