Vince McMahon once had the craziest idea for Christian

Gallo Images

Vince McMahon has been called a creative genius but he's also quirky as all get out. This wacky idea he had for Christian is sure to crack you up.

The world of professional wrestling is a weird one, cartoonish in nature and wild and wacky thanks to the over the top characters that inhabit it. The CEO of WWE, the largest promotion within that world, is perhaps the most eccentric of the bunch.

He's quirky. He's goofy. He's been described as a creative genius but there's a thin line between that and outright insanity.

Take the following story, for instance, one that comes from former WWE lead writer Alex Greenfield during an episode of Pollock and Greenfield at FightNetwork.com (transcription via PW Insider):

"Right before I started, there was a big show, I think it might have been in Toronto. Christian was just so completely over, and everybody thought he was going to get a push at, I think it was the World Heavyweight Championship at that point. We were on the plane one time shortly after I started, and Vince was just like 'God damn, I just don't like his face. His face really bothers me.' I was like, 'He's ugly, Vince?' 'No, it's not that he's ugly, it's just, I don't know, it's ratty! You know what we should do? That Kennedy gimmick.' And we're all like, 'What?' Some see-on of the Kennedy fortune I guess got arrested for rape in the 1990s at some point. When the woman who was accusing him was on the stand, all of the networks put a blue dot over her face. Vince was like, 'God damn, you know what we should do? We should put a blue dot over his face whenever he comes out.' It was the flight to Sheffield, England, also the flight where the Spirit Squad idea was invented. This was a whole flight of bad ideas."

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, McMahon wanted Christian to appear on television with a blue dot over his face at all times just because it bothers him. That's the leader of WWE. That's the man who has final say in everything you see on your TV screen during Monday Night Raw, Main Event, and Friday Night SmackDown.

Amazing.
