If you thought Bret Hart was the only wrestling superstar to ever hold a grudge against WWE's chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, then you should think again. Throughout his long run as the boss of WWE, Vince has had a lot of success but has also received a ton of criticisms from former employees. The Bret vs. Vince story is an obvious one, thus will not be included in this article. This article will take a look at 11 other wrestlers that have hated on Vince McMahon in the past. One thing is for sure, when you've accomplished all that you have, its inevitable you’re going to run into some bitterness eventually. Although, despite the bitterness some past wrestlers have on Vince, somehow (as you will see in this article) Vince finds a way to work things out, no matter how bad or how long the bitterness has been there for. Now let's begin; here’s a list of 11 former WWE superstars that have all hated on the one and only Vince McMahon in past, enjoy.
11 Josh Mathews
10 The Road Warriors
9 The Headbangers
7 Rob Van Dam
6 Jeff Jarrett
5 Ultimate Warrior
Thankfully before the Warrior’s passing the two were able to work previous issues out after not speaking for an extended amount of time. In 1991, things got heated between the two after the Warrior wrote a hand written letter to Vince, demanding more money for what he was doing for the company. It is believed Warrior asked for $500,000 or else he would not wrestle at Summerslam. The Ultimate Warrior believed he was owed a lot of money that was never given to him. Believe it or not, Vince accepted the Warrior's demands, and went as far as calling the Warrior “a member of the family, as a man and as a friend”. Although, only 2 months later things all broke down; Vince suspended the Warrior and also refused to meet his past demands because of a “breach in contract”. The Ultimate Warrior would end up quitting WWE the very next night.
4 Bruno Sammartino
3 Bill Goldberg
The bitterness between the two is still there to this day. One can’t help but to think that cooler heads will finally prevail and Goldberg will return to the WWE in a minor or major role one day. Goldberg was very bitter with the way his character was used in his time with the WWE, and believes his past turmoil with Triple H was a contributing factor to his poor run with the WWE. Goldberg also believes the fact that he wasn’t a “home grown” talent really hurt him and Vince was ego driven when dealing with character. Goldberg claims Vince could have made a lot of money if not for his ego when dealing with Goldberg’s character. Goldberg has stated that he is open to returning to the WWE at some point, despite all of his differences in the past with Triple H and Vince McMahon.
1 Randy Savage
It's really sad to see the Macho Man pass away without resolving his situation with the WWE. Although, at least the fans will get a chance to remember his tremendous legacy at this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony, as he will be inducted by Hulk Hogan. Rumor has it that the bad blood between Vince and Randy Savage began after a rumor that surfaced which indicated that Stephanie McMahon slept with Randy Savage when she was a minor. Others believe that the bitterness was because of a promise Macho Man had made to Vince which stated that he would never join WCW (evidently, a promise that was broken).
