Mike Chioda Reveals A Pet Peeve Of Vince McMahon's

The spot has dwindled in WWE over the years

From despising sneezing to not knowing what a burrito is, Vince McMahon has earned his nickname as an eccentric billionaire over the years. 

His eccentricities also extend to WWE's product and former referee Mike Chioda revealed on Monday Mailbag that McMahon hates it when Superstars break the referee's 10-count and immediately roll back to the outside. 

"That's one of Vince's pet peeves. He hates that the most," Chioda said. "That's one thing that he does not like. When you roll out, just mess with the ref and roll back in. Usually he wants someone to roll back in, in the ropes and go back out the other side. You know, especially if a wrestler or two wrestlers are outside, one comes in to break the count, he should just back off, come in the ring, get back into the centre, I go back, the referee will go back through the ropes to get the other talent back in, and next thing you know, he shoots back out the other side.

"It was one of Vince's pet peeves. He just didn't want the wrestlers to break... that was such old school stuff and he was trying to get away from that. We tried to get away from that old school mentality, just roll in, roll back out, roll in, roll back out. I never believe in that because when you roll in, and a referee would go to the talent there, the referee should always keep counting, because you're counting the other guy. You're counting for a double count-out. But that's one thing that we've veered away from, is doing that old school mentality."
