Backstage News On Vince McMahon’s One Legged Wrestler Joke



On this week’s WWE Monday Night RAW, Vince McMahon joked on-air about John Laurinaitis signing the “wrong one-legged wrestler.” The story goes back to when WWE was looking to sign Zach Gowen to a contract. Vince McMahon instructed John Laurinaitis to sign then 19-year-old Zach Gowen to a WWE deal. Unfortunately, Laurinaitis offered a contract to a different one-legged wrestler, who at the time was 37 years old.

At the time, Tom Prichard was working for WWE and had already sent a plane ticket and contract to Zach Gowen. When Gowen arrived to WWE Headquarters, John Laurinaitis had no idea who he was. McMahon then scolded him for offering a wrestler, the wrong one-legged wrestler in his late 30′s, a WWE contract.
