#5 Vince McMahon, Jonathan Coachman and the 'arrest'
Vince McMahon is no stranger to betting and this hilarious gambling tale goes back to the time Jonathan Coachman was one of the most well-connected personalities backstage in the WWE.
The story goes that McMahon once had Coachman arrested for running an illegal gambling ring in the WWE. Now, although Coachman was indeed instrumental in making several rather generous bets backstage, the grounds for his long-term imprisonment after arrest simply weren't there.
Nevertheless, that didn't stop Vince from playing a rather cruel prank on the Coach, having the latter arrested by a few cops who were in on the prank.
Apparently, they drove Coachman all the way to jail in the police cruiser, only to eventually make a U-Turn and take him back to WWE Headquarters. The incident is said to have caused Jonathan to lose his mind, go into a wild rage and weep uncontrollably in public!
