On the latest episode of Something to Wrestle, Bruce Prichard discussed the time Vince McMahon got into a motorcycle accident and him getting straight back into work the next day.
“I was actually on a cruise. I’m out there on a damn cruise on the Wrestle Vessel or whatever the hell it was at the time and word gets back to me, I remember Dave Hebner coming in and say to me, ‘Oh my God, Vince was in a motorcycle accident.’ […] So we’re a couple of hours away from docking and we’re close enough to land that I could get a signal on my cell phone. And I call him and he picks up first ring. Because all we had heard at that point was Vince was in a motorcycle accident. It doesn’t sound good, especially Vince had this big motorcycle with an eight-cylinder engine on it, a boss hog or whatever the hell it was, a giant fucking motorcycle and he liked to ride his motorcycle quickly.
So he picks up right away! I said, ‘Hey! How you doing?’ ‘I’m great!’ ‘Great! I’m glad to hear it! Shit the word going around this damn boat I’m on, we heard you were in a bad motorcycle accident.’ ‘Ah god damnit I’m comin’ around…’, he tells me the name of the street and everything. I knew the path. He says, ‘I’m comin’ around the corner and this god damn woman backin’ up and didn’t even look! Didn’t even look! I went right across the top of her!’ ‘So you like, crashed into the car?’ ‘Yup! Damn bike went right into the car and I went right over the top.’ ‘Well…you okay?’ ‘I’m fine! God damnit, I’m fine. They took me away for precautions. I’m fine.’
What happened is he broke his coccyx or cracked his coccyx, the tailbone, that little gimmick there. But he got up and walked away. He was pissed off they took him away for observation. He was probably more pissed off that his bike was messed up. Did not miss a beat. Just kept right on going. ‘I’m fine! God damn. Just a little bump!’ Like nothing happened.”
