Professional wrestling is a sport that loves a good urban legend. And among these tall tales, the ones surrounding WWE’s Principal Owner, Vincent Kennedy McMahon, are some of the most intriguing. One such legend that’s made its rounds on the internet is about the time Vince interviewed Eric Bischoff for a job at WWE.

It’s pretty incredible to think that the WWE missed out on such a golden opportunity, but the real kicker is that they actually made Bischoff the butt of their jokes.
