Chris Featherstone of Sportskeeda recently had a chat with former WWE Superstar JTG. The Cryme Tyme member talked about a bunch of topics in detail, and revealed why going to Vince McMahon with a pitch was a mistake on his part.
JTG stated that he went directly to Vince McMahon when he had an idea to pitch, which was a big no-no.
When you have a good idea, you don't want to go over nobody's head. That makes sense. What I did when I had my great idea, I showed it to Vince McMahon. That was a big no-no. There's a chain of command. When something's good and Vince McMahon likes it, people want to be a part of it and they want to be responsible for your success. I had nobody battling for me, so I went straight to Vince McMahon, it was my idea. I didn't go to any of the writers, I skipped the whole chain of command and went straight to Vince, and in this business you need people to back you.
