Apparently Vince McMahon rubbed some people the wrong way due to his behavior and some choice-comments he made during the funeral of WWE Hall Of Famer Rocky Johnson.
Rocky Johnson’s funeral was held last week and multiple reports surfaced soon thereafter of some apparent bizarre behavior by Vince McMahon and Pat Patterson, both of whom attended.
The story went that both acted inappropriately with Vince saying publicly that the best thing Rocky did was “marry Ata (Rock’s mother) and have a baby named Dwayne” before strutting off in the typical Vince McMahon walk while Patterson acted like he was drunk.
This reportedly rubbed some others in attendance the wrong way.
Al Rosen, Rocky Johnson’s best friend, recently came forward on Hannibal TV to clarify what happened.
Rosen did not deny Vince’s statement about Johnson and Ata but said that is exactly what Rocky would want someone to say about him and that the entire Johnson family considers Vince one of their own and none of them felt disrespected by his words or actions.
They all also felt that Vince’s strut before and after his speech was just part of his character.
Check out the complete interview below.
