5 Emotional WWE moments when Vince McMahon cried
Vince McMahon is one of the greatest heels to ever grace professional wrestling. The WWE CEO was a regular fixture on WWE television in the Attitude Era where he cemented himself as a sort of an evil boss during his feuds with Stone Cold, The Rock and other WWE Superstars.
Although Mr. McMahon has often played the role of the heel, behind the scenes, Superstars have often spoken about how much he cares. In this piece, we take a look at some moments Vince McMahon got emotional in the WWE.
DISCLAIMER: We won't add the deaths of Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit to this list as those are well known.
#5 When he learned about Stone Cold's neck surgery
We found out about this incident from Stone Cold Steve Austin's 2004 book called The Stone Cold Truth. The incident in question took place in 1999 shortly after the WWE CEO found out about the seriousness of Stone Cold's neck injury and the fact that he would have to need surgery.
In the book, Austin wrote, "J.R went into Vince's office and Vince's eyes were red, and he was wiping the tears from his eyes... he really cared."
This doesn't just show how close Steve Austin and Vince McMahon are in real life, but also how much Vince McMahon cares about the well being of his wrestlers.
#4 Shawn Michaels getting his Hall Of Fame ring
This incident took place backstage at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony ahead of WrestleMania 27. As you can see in the video below, Mr. McMahon comes to present Shawn Michaels with his Hall of Fame ring.
It's clearly an emotional moment and we can see Vince McMahon tearing up as he hugs Michaels after presenting him with the ring. Michaels and Vince McMahon have been close since the '90s and their friendship has always become stronger over the years.
