We all know that Vince McMahon is a little bit crazy, the big man would probably admit that himself.
To be the head of the biggest wrestling company in the world means you have to be pretty damn clever as well, but it isn't nearly as fun discussing the smart things Vince has done in the WWE as it is to discuss the mental stuff.
That is why, then, we must give thanks to the incredible people at the Squared Circle sub on Reddit, who have compiled some amazing anecdotes about the WWE Chairman.

Vince Hates Sneezing
Our first one on the list is actually a rather well-known one, with Paul Heyman admitting on Chris Jericho's podcast that Vince has an unnatural hatred of sneezing.
"Vince hates sneezing. When someone sneezes, he yells at them and tells them to control themselves. On the rare occasion Vince sneezes, he angrily mutters to himself and loses focus for a few minutes."

The next story comes via Court Bauer - a former member of the WWE creative team - who revealed that Vince will go to any lengths to win a road race.
"Vince once raced former WWE writer Court Bauer on an open highway. Vince boxed in Court so that Court was heading straight for road construction. Court had to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident. Vince sped off, having "won" the race by almost killing a dude."
The Fake Arrest
Next, we have a tale from Jonathan Coachman, a former WWE commentator and interviewer, who is now a host on ESPN.
"Vince, as a prank, had real police "arrest" Jonathan Coachman for running a betting pool at work. Coach said when the cop car finally turned around and brought him back to WWE HQ, he openly wept in relief and rage."
Challenging Mark Henry
We all know that Vince is probably the most competitive man on the planet, which is why he tried to match former Strongman Mark Henry during a weight-lifting session, with terrible and hilarious results.
"Apparently Vince invited Mark Henry to a workout session. Bear in mind that Mark Henry's claim as world's strongest man is based on the fact he is the only man to have competed at top level Olympic Lifting, Power Lifting, and Strongman competitions, Henry said."
"Vince tried to out rep him on every exercise. Henry went along with it because he's naturally competitive and even admitted that Vince tested him a little bit. The next day Vince phoned Mark in great pain and admitted he had made a terrible mistake."
The Gail Kim Saga
And now we have entered the weird section of the stories, starting with Jim Ross having to convince Vince to sign Gail Kim, because McMahon didn't believe that Asian women could be found attractive. From the Ross Report, with Mike Tenay.
"Vince was hesitant to hire Gail Kim due to her being Asian. Jim Ross convinced him not only because of her in-ring talent, but the fact that many men are attracted to Asian woman and that there are even lots of Asian porn sites on the internet. This apparently shocked the hell out of Vince, who had no idea Asian porn sites existed."
The Fart Gone Wrong
And for our final story of the evening, we have saved the best till last. For this is the time where Vince McMahon accidentally pooed himself before having to go out on live television. From an episode of the Opie and Anthony show, with Jim Ross as a special guest.
"JR once farted in a car with Gerald Brisco, which made Brisco start gagging and throwing up. Vince heard about that, so backstage at RAW one night, he tried to fart and make Brisco puke. It backfired, and Vince shit in his pants.
"He then had to go out to the ring and do a promo! JR said that all the production people in his headphones told him about it, and that they were instructed to keep the camera shots ABOVE Vince's waistline for the entire promo!"
