Mike Chioda Recalls A "Hammered" Vince McMahon Doing Donuts In A WWE Ring Truck
“I swear he almost tipped the truck two or three times. I thought he was going to capsize the truck.”
Everyone loves a Vince McMahon story. From stories about his love of farts, snow cones, and meat wraps, to attempting to wrestle Kurt Angle on a plane, McMahon is the gift that keeps on giving.
But according to former WWE referee Mike Chioda, things weren’t always fun, as he explained on Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw:
“I think we were in Richfield, Ohio. We used to do some Survivor Series on Thanksgiving,” started Chioda “We used to do Richfield, Ohio. We used to go out there on Tuesday, but I think it was a Wednesday night going into Thursday, but it was Wednesday night and everybody was drinking at The Holiday Inn bar. Vince was getting hammered. Everybody was getting hammered.
“Vince said, ‘Hey Mike. Where’s the ring truck?’ I said, ‘It’s right outside in the parking lot sir.’ It was snowing and there was a ton of snow from before. It was snowing at night. It was freezing because it was November at that time. Next thing you know, Vince is like, ‘Give me the god damn keys to the truck Mike.’ I was like, ‘Yea sure boss. No problem.’
“I gave him the keys and he said, ‘Ok, come with me.’ I look at Chimel (Tony Chimel). He was over at the table. I told Chimel, ‘Vince has the keys to the truck.’ He said, ‘Why the f*** did you give him the keys to the truck?’ Me and Chimel came out. Now we’re in the truck with Vince. He’s doing donuts with this 20-foot truck with a sleeper cab. He’s shifting gears and saying, ‘God damn it. Can’t this go any faster?’ I said, ‘Yea, if you’re going down the highway.’ I swear he almost tipped the truck two or three times. I thought he was going to capsize the truck.”
