He claimed that McMahon was bored with the tag-team wrestling which is crucial part of the wrestling business and was responsible for killing that part.
The two-time Hall of Famer said, “I think it’s my understanding that Vince McMahon got sick of tag team wrestling and is no longer a fan of it. And that’s so sad that he kind of singlehandedly killed a part of the wrestling business that was so important.”
