5 WWE Superstars you probably didn't know were close to the McMahons
The McMahons are the most influential family in all of professional wrestling. You know, owning the WWE tends to give a family that sort of power. Ever since Vince managed to obliterate the competition that WCW provided in the Monday Night Wars of the 1990s, no other promotion has come close to challenging the WWE’s monopoly on the wrestling market.
What this does is make the proposition of befriending any member of the McMahon family an extremely attractive concept. Of course, getting close to the family is easier said than done these days when they are a successful bunch.
Most of the McMahon household’s closest friends come from the days when the then-WWF was still struggling. These men and women earned the gratitude of the McMahons and Vince and co. will forever consider them to be friends.
So, without any further ado, here are 5 WWE Superstars you probably didn't know were close to the McMahons:
#1 The Wild Samoans
The Wild Samoans are a legendary tag team in the world of professional wrestling but their relationship with the McMahons comes more from their family links rather than their in-ring accomplishments.
They are the uncles of some big names to make it in the WWE such as the Usos, Rikishi, Umaga, and the like but it is the son of one of the Wild Samoans – Sika – who really makes this bond. The name of that son is Roman Reigns.
Sika was rumoured to be extremely upset when Rollins walked away with the World Title during Wrestlemania 31 after he was promised that Reigns would get the belt. The next year, Reigns won the big belt at Wrestlemania 32. There might not be a confirmed connection between the two events but there’s no denying the sway The Wild Samoans hold due to their friendship with Vince.
