5 Times Vince McMahon saved the day
When one thinks of Mr. McMahon, the image that pops up in mind is of a scheming, dastardly authority heel who is capable of going to great lengths to make his opponents pay. The Mr. McMahon character was created back in the mid-90s, and he went on to feud with the anti-hero in Stone Cold Steve Austin, regarded by many as the greatest rivalry in the history of this business.
Mr. McMahon, over the course of his decades-long on-screen career, has cemented himself as one of the biggest heels in the industry. But there have been moments when Vince ended up delighting the fans with his acts. WWE's storied history is filled with a bunch of these moments, when Vince actually did something to please the WWE Universe, saving the day in the process and sending the fans home happy.
Here are five times Vince McMahon saved the day.
#5 Vince and his family take control of Raw and SmackDown Live
Last year, Baron Corbin was made the General Manager of Monday Night Raw. The decision resulted in Corbin taking control of the red brand and running roughshod on a bunch of babyfaces on the roster. The primary target of Corbin was Braun Stroman, who fell short of winning the Universal title at WWE Crown Jewel, as Corbin attacked him before the match.
The ratings soon plummeted and it was clear as day that fans were not happy with Corbin's antics. On the December 17th episode of Raw, Mr. McMahon came out, followed by the entire McMahon family, minus Linda McMahon. The family promised that a change was coming, and that the McMahons were going to take control of Raw and SmackDown Live. Baron Corbin was later removed from his position, and the fans couldn't have been happier.
