Professional career

World Wide Wrestling Federation (1971-1979)

Feuds with non-wrestlers

McMahon vs. Bischoff

Vince McMahon began a feud with Eric Bischoff in late 2005, when he decided that Bischoff wasn't doing a good job as General Manager of RAW. He started "The Trial of Eric Bischoff" where McMahon served as the judge. Bischoff ended up losing the trial, and Vince "fired" him, and put him in a garbage truck and it drove away. Bischoff stayed gone for months. Almost a year later on RAW in late 2006, Bischoff was brought out by Vince McMahon's executive assistant Jonathan Coachman so that he could announce the completion of his book "Controversy Creates Ca$h." Bischoff began blasting remarks at McMahon, saying that he was fired "unceremoniously" as the RAW General Manager, that there would be no Mr. McMahon if it wasn't for Bischoff's over-the-top rebellious ideas, and that D-Generation X was nothing but a rip off of the nWo. Bischoff returned again in March 2007 to tell Vince his thoughts on Vince's WrestleMania 23 match, telling Vince he can't wait to see him get his head shaved bald.

McMahon vs. Trump

In early 2007, McMahon started a feud with real-estate tycoon Donald Trump, which was featured on major media outlets. Originally Trump wanted to fight McMahon himself but they came to a deal. Trump would pick a representative, and McMahon would pick a representative who would fight at WrestleMania 23 with Stone Cold Steve Austin serving as the Special Guest Referee. The man whose representative lost the match would have his head shaved bald. After the contract signing on RAW, Donald Trump pushed McMahon over the table in the ring onto his head after McMahon provoked Trump with several finger pokes to the shoulders. Later at a press conference, McMahon during a photo opportunity, offered a shake of hands to Trump but retracted his hand as Trump put out his. McMahon went on to fiddle with Trump's tie and flick Trump's nose. This angered Trump as he then slapped McMahon across the face. McMahon was then restrained from retaliating by Trump's bodyguards and Bobby Lashley. At WrestleMania 23, McMahon's representative (Umaga) lost the match with Stone Cold's help, and as a result, McMahon's hair was shaved off by Trump and Lashley, with Austin restraining the him. Later Austin gave Trump a Stone Cold Stunner. 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the Anno Domini (common) era. ...

Controversy

On February 1, 2006, McMahon was accused of sexual harassment by a worker at a Boca Raton tanning bar [1]. The worker said that he "groped her and harassed her". At first, the charge appeared to be discredited because McMahon was in Miami for the Royal Rumble at the time in question; it was soon clarified that the alleged incident was reported to police on the day of the Rumble, but actually took place the day before[2]. On March 27, a Florida television station reported that no charges would be filed against McMahon as a result of the investigation.

The DVD includes the following McMahon matches:

While much of the DVD paints McMahon in a good light (the chapter on the XFL gives the impression it was a daring idea and not a massive failure), several segments did point out some of his drawbacks. Greg Gagne accuses Vince of destroying his father Verne and the AWA, almost everyone besides Vince talks of how horrible the Katie Vick angle was, and many wrestlers discuss how stubborn Vince can be and how he refuses to listen to others.

McMahon was known at one time to work out verbal agreements with wrestlers ending with a handshake.

McMahon abandoned this practice after WCW signed several stars away, such as Lex Luger, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, and now signs talent to standard wrestler contracts.[citation needed] Lawrence (Larry) Wendell Pfohl (born June 2, 1958), is an American former professional wrestler, bodybuilder and football player better known by his ring name, Lex Luger. ...
