The heart of the matter

One of the most hilarious moments in this angle saw Truth crashing Drake Maverick's wedding and winning back the title. While talking to Edge and Christian, Truth revealed that an idea was pitched to Vince McMahon for the wedding angle, which the boss eventually rejected.

The idea would have seen Truth wear a wedding dress. Apparently, Vince thought that this would seem like Truth trying to be funny, and instead should just try to be himself.

"Let me tell you about that day: That was Sarah’s idea. Oh my God, that was so funny. Sarah Stock, she was there, and she was like, ‘Well…’, because at first, I was gonna do a wedding dress and Vince said, ‘No. No wedding dress. That sounds like he’s trying to be funny and tell Truth just be funny, be himself.’" [H/T: Fightful]
