Former head writer of WWE Smackdown Alex Greenfield joined Mister Saint Laurent this week on MLW Radio, available right now at MLW.com. Greenfield spoke about the time WWE Chairman Vince McMahon asked him to “step outside” after a creative disagreement.
“We’re standing right outside the arena. There are fans way back behind the fence wondering what Mr. McMahon is yelling at this little Jewish kid for. I just refused to back down. I was like, my way is the right way. You did it wrong. He said, Damnit, I wish you were 6′ 7″ and I said, I’m not, but I’m standing right here.”
“And there was a moment in that conversation where I thought he was just going to haul off and punch me in the face. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking like a badass here like I would have won this confrontation necessarily. He probably would have broken my jaw.”
“But he really thought about it. I’m convinced to this day that he thought about knocking the [expletive] out of me.”
Also, on MLW’s Konnan Show, Court Bauer shared a hilarious story about Vince McMahon and “Brown Sugar” that left Konnan SPEECHLESS (and laughing). MLW Radio and MLW’s Konnan Show are available at MLW.com and iTunes.
