"When I walked in the door, [Vince McMahon] said, 'Steve, have you ever seen the movie 'Deliverance?'" said Keirn. "I said, 'Yes, several times,' and he goes, 'I want you to be one of those guys.' Immediately, I'm thinking he's talking about Burt Reynolds. I say 'Sure, I can be Burt Reynolds!'... He stopped me and said, 'No, no, no... I want you to be one of the two guys in the woods with Ned Beatty.'"
