During his appearance on Busted Open Radio, Shane Helms defended Vince McMahon and stated that he enjoys paying his roster. Here’s what he had to say:
Vince is the easy guy to go at, but he runs a huge corporation, and I would not want to be in his shoes. There isn’t a day in my life where I would want the responsibility of what Vince has to deal with. Leadership has a price and winning has a price, to quote Michael Jordan. You have to answer to, especially in a publicly traded company, you have to answer to shareholders and all this type of thing. Every decision he makes has a million dollar price tag on it. Everything. Can you even imagine having to deal with that on a constantly daily basis? That every decision you make is going to effect people’s lives and have million dollars behind it. It’s very difficult, so I understand people going after him, he’s the biggest name, so why wouldn’t they.
I just hope that fans understand, I don’t think it was him behind the desk being maniacally evil. It was a tough decision. I don’t think he enjoyed making it. Vince loves being able to pay people. He loves putting on this product. This industry exists because of some of the decisions he made. So like I said, I understand where they are coming from, but this is just a decision he had to make and like I said, I don’t think he wanted to make it.
