– Sean Waltman says that Vince McMahon was “furious” that his name was mentioned in Bret Hart’s Hall of Fame speech and fired the writer assigned to it. Waltman discussed the situation on his X-Pac 12360 podcast and said that McMahon was livid about his name being mentioned.
“Earlier on, and I’m not sure whether it was during Bret’s segment, but I think Bret mentioned Vince a bunch of times,” Waltman said. “And Vince got really hot and I think someone might have gotten fired. And then we said it like, a million times and no one got fired.”
Waltman then made it clear that someone got fired, saying, “I’m not kidding. Vince was pissed. And I get it, I understand. That’s a thing for him. And like, it’s his company, and people go out there and they do that.” He later clarified that it was the writer assigned to help Bret with his speech.
