It’s well known that Vince McMahon hates sneezing and nodding, and Stephanie McMahon explained why during a new interview. Stories have circulated for years that McMahon despises and even physically recoils when people sneeze around him, including when he does it himself. Stephanie was asked about Vince’s reactions by Bill Simmons on his latest podcast and she explained both the sneezing and nodding aversions.

“He feels like [nodding] influences the room,” she said (per Fightful). “If someone is talking and someone else is nodding, you’re going to influence the room. You shouldn’t influence the room. Let people think what they want to think. He hates sneezing because it’s involuntary and he cannot control it. He hates sneezing. It’s anyone, but especially when it’s him.”
