There have been plenty of stories over the years regarding Vince McMahon that suggest he's downright crazy.

Being at the helm of WWE and being involved in a weekly basis to create a huge organisation might do that to a person throughout the years, but the stories seem to get both crazier and more creative as the years go by.


There's the infamous 'Vince hates sneezing' story revealed by Paul Heyman where the boss tells the culprit to control themselves.

There's the supposed highway race with a former WWE writer, pranking Jonathan Coachman by faking an arrest as well as getting drunk and letting the Hart Foundation hit their finisher on him in a strip club.

So, anything Vince now does might not come as a much of a surprise to fans, and the latest story revealed by another former WWE writer shows how poor Vince's memory has become.

Former WWE creative team member Kevin Eck was appearing on the Wade Keller Wrestling Podcast where he shared the story of Vince once forgetting what Brock Lesnar's finish was during a booking meeting.

The interesting about that, however, is the fact that Vince ate an F5 courtesy of The Beast not long before the meeting itself.


According to Wrestling Forum, he said: "As Vince has gotten older I think he has become more forgetful with things and there were a lot of instances where he had to be reminded.

"He would just flat out ask, `What did we do on RAW last week with this guy? What did we do?' He would need to be caught up to speed. 

"Granted, he was in his late 60s/early 70s at that point and responsible for a lot of programming and seen a lot of angles over the years and seen a lot of TV shows.


"One of the funniest things I recall is Vince one time in a booking meeting...it was Brock Lesnar against somebody and Vince was trying to think of what the finish could be, and he literally says this in a booking meeting.

"He said, `What's Brock's finish again?' It wasn't a joke. There was kind of a pause and somebody spoke up and said, `The F5.' Then it suddenly dawned on Vince that he had taken that move not too long before that and hurt his hip and made a joke about it.

"`Oh that's right, my hip didn't like that move very much.' He could not remember the F5."

Vince can be forgiven for the oversight, considering he has so much on his plate already at his age.

Still, with a lot being made of Vince's age and some fans wanting him to step down, it's strange how Vince would forget something so important about his most significant investment.
