Raw Women champion Becky Lynch shared a funny story about WWE President Vince McMahon in an interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider on Friday.
McMahon has always been an active and hard-working leader, and Lynch noted that he had not changed in this regard, even at 74: ” I watched him the other day demonstrate that he fell from a hassle-free tower at 74, brushed his shoulders and got up. ”
Although The Man did not provide additional context for McMahon’s stunt, it is likely to have had something to do with the May 10 ranking match on coin change.
For the first time, the Money in the Bank ranking match takes place at WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Six men and six women will start on the ground floor and work their way up to the roof with a man and woman who walk away with a contract that guarantees a world title match at all times.
Since the coronavirus pandemic forced WWE to host fanless events for almost two months, it caused WWE decision makers to think outside the box.
This was evident at WrestleMania 36 with the Boneyard match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles and the Firefly Funhouse match between John Cena and Bray Wyatt. These two games were cinematic and unlike anything seen before in WWE, but they were both widely praised.
Rather than having two ranking matches at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, with no one present to watch, WWE is taking the opportunity to do something in wrestling that has never been attempted.
Lynch’s story suggests that McMahon is very invested in the success of the game and how it will be received by the fans, which bodes well for his chances of being an entertaining and enjoyable showcase.
