The Reason For Vickie-Sneezing Angle On RAW
The Vickie Guerrero sneezing scenes on Raw the past two weeks are actually based on one of Vince McMahon’smany eccentricities.
On last week’s show, Guerrero accidentally sneezed on The Authority upon congratulating them on the termination of Brad Maddox and Daniel Bryan being hurt. An agitated Stephanie McMahon slapped Vickie and warned her that she had already fired her once. Then on this week’s show, Guerrero accidentally sneezed on two cups of coffee she was bringing to The Authority – she shrugged her shoulders and proceeded to walk away with the contaminated drinks in hand.
If there is one thing Vince McMahon hates, its sickness. “There is no such thing as sick,” was the usual response when someone would try to use it as an excuse in the world of WWE. So it should come as no surprise that if Vince is a workaholic and if anything gets in the way of his work, it makes him angry. Paul Heyman has said that Vince would get angry with his own sneezes because he can’t control it.
“Here’s the best way I can tell you about Vince McMahon. It’s the ultimate Vince control story,” Heyman said in a 2010 interview. “If you’re in the room with Vince McMahon and he sneezes, go on your Blackberry for the next 20 minutes because nothing you say to him is going to get through… Cause he gets really pissed off. Cause he can’t control the sneeze.”
Simply put, the WWE CEO is a bit of a hygiene freak and lives in constant fear of people’s germs contaminating him and the precious air he breathes.
