Ex WWE writer Court Bauer, recently detailed the relationship between the two during his appearance on Talk is Jericho. He revealed that while close, Vince was very competitive. The WWE Chairman was once very livid with the former President of the United States for a very baffling reason.
Former WWE writer recalls when Vince McMahon lost his temper with Donald Trump
“Donald Trump was there doing the angle with Vince and one night they’re doing some sort of in-ring deal with Trump and Vince and it was cold. The lead up to WrestleMania and Donald Trump has like that big winter jacket and he’s like 6’4’, something like that,” Bauer told Jericho. “He’s kind of a deceptively tall guy.
“So, you know they’re doing a promo, and Vince and him are going like face to face. The ‘Battle Of The Billionaires’ thing goes down, and afterwards we’re in the limo and Vince is just livid,” he continued. “Like they get along so great. There’s like that kindred spirit thing with them and everything but he felt like Donald had intentionally showed him up.
“He was like, ‘Did you see that? He was wearing that jacket. Clearly his shoulder pads were stuffed. He was trying to look bigger than me, it’s ridiculous’. And he was like really hot about Trump trying to look bigger than him.”
