During a recent episode of “Something To Wrestle With”, Bruce Prichard revealed that Vince McMahon wouldn’t allow Tito Santana to turn heel because he felt that he was too nice of a person to turn heel. Here’s what he had to say:
Absolutely. Because it’s hard to hate Tito Santana. The human being is, you know, what you saw is what you got on Tito. Tito was a very, very warm, natural, just real person. And there’s nothing put on about him. He’s a good guy, he would be the guy that would, you know, be the first one to come to your aid. And if someone was doing someone wrong, Tito would be the first guy to step up and and say, ‘Hey man, no, don’t do that.’
And a heel, a good heel, I think does have to have some of those a**holian tendencies that I’m not sure that Tito has in him. I think Tito’s just too good of a person. Maybe he could have, I don’t know, because usually heels are the best guys in the locker room. But I don’t know, I think that it was just that he was too nice.
