Vince McMahon rules the WWE with an iron fist and he wants things done his way and his way only. As it turns out, he has the mental ability that some would say is Jedi-like from Star Wars.
Chris Jericho spoke about his relationship with Vince McMahon during Wrestling Observer Radio.
He said Vince McMahon has the abilities to make people do what he wants no matter what attitude they walk into a situation with. Jericho said this special skill of McMahon’s has a name adopted from the Star Wars Universe.
“Once again, [Vince McMahon] has seen and done it all man. From the worst of the worst to the best of the best. You know you’re never pulling one over on Vince McMahon. You know he can pull one over on you. We call it ‘The McMahon Jedi Mind Trick.'”
“You go into the office pissed off, ‘I’m not doing this, I’m not gonna do it.’ It’s like on Gilligan’s Island when he wants him to wear a dress, ‘You can’t make me! You can’t make me! You can’t make me!’ and then the next scene he’s wearing a dress.”
Jericho said that is how Vince McMahon is and it doesn’t matter if he’s talking to The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, or anyone in between. “When Vince waves that wand you’re going, ‘Oh my gosh, how the hell did he do that?'”
There is a reason why Vince McMahon is still on top of his game at 73-years-old. Because he has a few tricks up his sleeve and according to Chris Jericho, McMahon might have learned them in a galaxy far, far away.
