As previously noted, creative team member Robert Evans was reportedly fired by WWE after he produced a Hall of Fame speech that made a mention of Vince McMahon.
During his recent podcast, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman confirmed that there was in fact an incident over Vince’s name being mentioned:
“Vince got really hot,” he explained. “I think somebody might have gotten fired. Then we went out and said it a million times and no one got fired. It’s not funny for the guy that f*cking lost his job.”
X-Pac added, “I’m not kidding. No, I’m not. Vince was pissed. I understand. That’s a thing for him. It’s his company and people go out there and they do that.”
