Former WWE Writer Talks About Vince McMahon Wanting To Donate A Hospital Wing
Former WWE writer Jon Rineman spoke during a recent Reddit AMA about Vince McMahon once stating that he wanted to donate an entire wing to a hospital.
Here’s the story:
“As far as a crazy Vince story: we had an idea where someone was going to attack somebody in a hospital. And then I had an idea for it that Vince liked, then Heyman had a bunch of ideas Vince liked. So, Vince thinks about it and says: “We’re really gonna fuck up this hospital. How much would it cost to rebuild?” He stops, thinks a second, then says, matter-of-factly, “Hmm. I might have to donate a wing to a hospital.
How much does that cost?” So, our writer’s assistant started looking up how much it cost to donate a wing to a hospital. Then later in the meeting, another idea came up that nixed the hospital idea, and Vince said, “Which one is the one without buying the hospital wing? Do that one.” Then he stopped and said, “I should donate a wing somewhere though…” and it got quiet while he thought. Then he took out his pencil and I saw him write ‘Hospital.’“
