R-Truth: I Have The Highest Amount Of Respect For Vince McMahon
Truth has a close relationship with Vince
R-Truth has opened up on his relationship with Vince McMahon, revealing how close he is with the WWE Chairman.
Truth and McMahon have developed a close friendship during Truth's time in WWE and the former 24/7 Champion has revealed why they get on so well.
Speaking on the Battleground Podcast, Truth said about McMahon: "He taught me confidence and assurance. I’ve done so many trips with Vince overseas, Iraq, Afghanistan, wherever the military was at. Being around Vince, if you don’t learn, shame on you.
"We’ve had so many times that we laughed until we almost cried. Vince is one of the most down to earth people. Being on those tours with him, whether it was the Air Force, Marines, Army, we met them all and shaked hands. We bonded during those times. There were times we were overseas and mortars were shot at us and we had to bunker down. I’ve been on submarines with Vince. I’ve been on war ships with Vince.
"He told me he likes the fact that I’m just me and I come straight forward. Vince is giving, and I have the highest amount of respect for Vince. Vince is also a friend. He wants to be there for you. He wants you to come and ask him things. If you have an idea, come to him. He makes himself very accessible to you.
"He intimidates a lot of people. He attracts me. Just like my aura. I may intimidate a lot of people if you see me coming down a dark alley at night. I’m walking a certain way and I may intimidate you, but once you get to know me, you’re like, ‘Oh my God. This guy gave me the shirt off his back.’ That’s Vince McMahon.
"I sat under that learning tree for a long time and I soaked it in. I didn’t let any of it go to waste."
