- In August, WWE creative writer Kevin Eck was among several employees let go by the sports-entertainment organization as part of their initiative to cut costs in all departments. Now that he's no longer employed by the company, Eck revealed a secret he had been holding.
"Now it can be told: I used to have someone in Vince's office steal some of his Speed Shot drinks (or as he called them, "purple gimmicks") for me before I worked out," Eck wrote on Facebook.
Eck is talking about the grape-flavored ABB Performance Speed Shot, an energy drink. His comment was in response to former WWE Superstar Stevie Richards remarking under his status update, "As Vince McMahon once said to Dreamer and me: "I know your two motherf--kers are stealing my protein bars!!!!"
To add to McMahon's food-related quirks, MetsFan4Ever, a former WWE backstage worker who has broken WWE news and produced multiple shows scripts, recently shared a story on Reddit.com about the Chairman's love for Snow cones.
"A few years ago the company had a Snow Cone party. Kind of weird, I know. This was in the back lot of the TV Studio (not the actual large Headquarter building everyone always sees). Well apparently Vince is a huge Snow Cone fanatic. So much so, that he had a lot of them. Like 10. At one point he got up and announced in front of everyone in his Mr. McMahon "You're Fired" voice that he LOVES SNOW CONES. It was awkward and I had to fight to hold back my laughter. It was surreal."
- SLAM! Wrestling has posted a review on former WWE Superstar Brodus Clay's participation in the Kayfabe Commentaries "YouShoot" series, where he discussed his career and responded to fan questions. During the interview, Clay revealed that although his contact with Vince McMahon was limited, the WWE Chairman was instrumental in helping him craft the "Funkasaurus" dance.
Before he debuted the character, Clay was in the ring working on his dance moves. McMahon decided to join him in the ring to offer him assistance and said he should do whatever felt natural. According to Clay, seeing McMahon unafraid to look silly helped him out because he could joke to himself thinking, "And I thought I was a bad dancer!"
