Former WWE Writer Freddie Prinze Jr. Recalls The Time Vince McMahon Caught Him Playing World Of Warcraft

Vince must have been more of a Horde player...

Freddie Prinze Jr. has had a varied career and experienced success as an actor, starring in Scooby-Doo, Boston Legal, and Star Wars Rebels. 

Prinze also enjoyed a spell in WWE as a writer on the creative team in 2007 and 2008, and he appeared on the latest episode of The New Day's Feel The Power podcast to discuss his stint with the company. The Scooby-Doo star said he enjoyed his time in creative but that he couldn't cope with the schedule and ultimately had to quit.

"My first stint there, it was full-on writers' room every day and then to every single TV and it was crazy," Prinze said. "I was not built for that business, that schedule, that lifestyle. I couldn't hack it and I had to tap out."  

The voice behind Iron Bull in Dragon Age: Inquisition did share a funny story with The New Day, however, as he revealed Vince McMahon once caught him playing World Of Warcraft during a conference call.

Prinze Jr. said: "I got busted in a production meeting with Vince on a conference call playing World Of Warcraft because I had already pitched my segment and he was like 'Yeah, alright we've got that, we're moving on.' And my Dwarf was in a raid, he was this Dwarven Priest and I was just in the middle of my moment so I wasn't thinking about the work call any more and I was in my apartment, so I hit '/Charge,' which is like an emoji for people who don't know. Only this one, in particular, your dwarf would actually speak and it was like this battle cry and he’d go 'For Khaz Modan!' And Vince goes 'God! What the hell was that?'"
