    When was VKM ever in the trailer park.

    • Guest

      He grew up in one. Back when he was a kid, wrestling promotions were more like carnivals/circuses. They weren’t exactly billion dollar businesses.

      • BIG M

        I’m aware of that but are you aware that by the late 60’s VKM’s father was selling out MSG with Bruno Samertino on a fairly regular basis as well as 2 or 3 thousand seat arenas in America’s east coast while NWA promoters were selling out arenas in America’s south with guys like Harley Race.
        Yes pro wrestling started round the carneval circuit but by the late 60’s and early 70’s promotions in the US, Mexico and Japan started running arena shows.
        The carneval circuit wrestling show went out with those old wild west cowboy shows.
        Doubt any promoters kid in the heyday of the territory system wanted for nothing.
        They wernt rich of course but they wernt trailer park poor either.
        Learn your wrestling history mate.

          BIG M – VKM was born in 1945, which means he would have been 15 in 1960 and 25 in 1970. He surely had enough time to be poor before that… don’t you think?

            Ok ok enough of the backlash already guys yeesh.
            I’m not saying his early life was all wine and roses just saying it’s a little much for him to say he came from nothing that’s all.

      Vince McMahon didnt meet his real father, Vince Sr., till he was around 12 years old. He lived with his mother & step father in a trailer park until his real dad came and took him away and changed his life forever. From what I’ve read, he had a pretty tough childhood when he used to be abused by his step father.

      • BIG M

        Oh ok I stand corected then.

      • J Vomkrieg

        Thanks Ranveer

  • K!NG

    I’ve always wanted to fire my employees like Vince does his wrestlers.

    • Mysterion

      Then you’re a terrible boss and shouldn’t have that role. Vince does it on TV for impact, not because it’s a good way to deal with peoples lives.

      • Craig

        I’m sure he was being sarcastic. Moron.

      • K!NG

        Kinda hard not to have that roll I run my own company.
