Vince McMahon is an intimidating figure, he literally admitted as much when being interviewed one time.
However, when he's where he feels most comfortable - in gorilla position or his WWE office at their Stamford, Connecticut headquarters - Vince is a completely different person.
This is according to recently released former WWE superstar Hornswoggle, who gave a glimpse into what 'The Chairman' is really like away from television cameras and thousands of cheering - or booing - fans.

Dylan Postl, formerly known as Hornswoggle in WWE, was recently a guest on The Steve Austin Show.
Among other things, 'Swoggle spoke about Vince McMahon, and how he truly believed that the billionaire always wanted to be treated like a coworker by the wrestlers in the WWE, rather than as their boss.

"I was still so intimidated by him, I really almost feel mad at myself about that because I didn't really ever ask him stuff about the [professional wrestling] business and about how he viewed things and that kind of stuff," Postl said.
However, despite being intimidated, Hornswoggle revealed he really had no reason to be.
"And what happened because I viewed him so much like, 'oh, my God. He's my boss.' I can't say the wrong thing, I can't ask him this stuff," he explained.
"But, I think, and I could be completely, 100% wrong, but Vince always wants to be viewed almost like a coworker instead of a boss."
"He wants you to be able to approach him with things and he likes being approached with ideas and things like that because, let's be honest, he can't think for every member of the WWE roster. He can't, so he likes to be approached like that," Postl added.
Amazingly, McMahon was so relaxed with his superstars that he wouldn't let them call him Mr. McMahon, preferring to just go by Vince.
"And I always heard whenever people would call him 'Mr. McMahon', [he would say], 'no, I'm Vince. That's who I play on TV is Mr. McMahon.' And that always kind of stood out to me. Like, okay, he really sees himself at the same level as everyone."
So there you have it, despite being one of the most intimidating men in the world, Vince McMahon is actually quite chill. Pretty cool to know that he doesn't have a grandiose image of himself, like a lot of others in the wrestling industry do.
