– During the latest episode of Grilling JR, Jim Ross answered a question of what Vince McMahon is actually like when he’s at work in the boardroom. Ross did a Q&A for the episode and was asked if McMahon is erratic or serious and business-like. JR said it was more the latter, and that he’s not what we see on the screen. He did say that McMahon is easily distracted and swayed though, and that could occasionally be a problem.

Highlights from the discussion, and the full podcast, are below:

On what Vince McMahon is like in the boardroom surrounded by his core team: “It depends on the room, but he’s generally very organized and structured in that respect. But then, he’s easily distracted. And that may account for his ADD or whatever, but he’s easily distracted. But he doesn’t come in as the — he’s not a Mr. McMahon character. Although, at the flip of a switch, he can become that. But normally, he’s a very strategic businessman.”
On McMahon’s ability to be convinced of ideas by others: “The only thing about Vince is that he’s easily swayed. And sometimes the last person to have an audience with him is the one that closes the deal. And sometimes, that’s not always a good thing. But no, he’s fine. He’s not — he didn’t come in blood veins bulging, face red, you know. Nothing like beads of sweat, whatever. He was fine. Everything was good in the meeting room til some poor, unknown, uneducated bastard sneezed. Then all bets were off.”
