** Vince out-of-character has also pulled some genuinely sleazy business moves to keep his company at the top (such as forcing the hand of several PPV providers for the inaugural Survivor Series by claiming if they aired Jim Crockett's Starrcade event instead of Survivor Series, they forfeit the right to air [=WrestleMania=] the next year).

Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.
* HellHasNewManagement: At one point Ross claimed that when Vince goes to Hell, he would quickly take it over, implying that Vince was even WORSE than Satan.

* LouisCypher: "Some say he's the devil himself." - Wrestling/JimRoss ** At one point Ross even claimed that when Vince goes to Hell, [[LikeABadassOutOfHell he would quickly take it over, implying that Vince was even WORSE than Satan]]. Vince was also the "Higher Power" of the Ministry, a Satanic cult, and branded himself a counterpart at war with God in "[[ParodyReligion [=McMahonism=]]]". As well, during the [=McMahonism=] storyline, Vince imitated Triple H's water-spitting entrance using holy water, then turned to his son Shane and said, "That kind of burns a little!" giving a hint of actual demonic influence. No wonder Shane asked him off-screen after that if he was going to Hell.

** That man brought '''ERIC BISCHOFF''' into the WWE, gave him a paycheck and a prominent spot on the show as the top heel authority figure for years. Vince never held a grudge as long as there was business to be done. Bret Hart, Nash and Hall, Hogan, Sable, New Age Outlaws, Jake Roberts, Warrior, Bruno Sammartino....all people who at one point or another had major issues with WWE, filed lawsuits against them, trashed them in the press, and yet, all were invited back for the sake of entertainment.\\\ \\\ [[ThisIsUnforgivable Except Macho Man.]]

** One of his hallmark moments had to have been his sudden reappearance in the latest Cena/Punk feud. Long story short, Vince challenged Punk to a fight and went toe-to-toe with him at the end of the episode. This was CrazyAwesome in kayfabe as Vince is nearing 70 and Punk was the WWE Champion at the time, but a look at the background info will show that Vince decided on about six days' notice to appear on RAW in person and carry out this storyline in an attempt to boost ratings after one of the worst Mondays in WWE's recent history. In other words, '''a 67-year-old multimillionaire CEO threw himself into an on-screen brawl''' (some of the spots included Vince ''leaping over'' an announce table as well as Vince and Punk beating the crap out of each other with [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter kendo sticks]]) '''for the sole purpose of getting people to watch his TV show.''' Now ''that's'' dedication.

** BiggerBad: Since he's the owner of the company, he's arguably responsible(directly or indirectly) for everything that has happened in WWE since he took over the company in 1982. It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in quite a few "worked shoots".

** He's currently this in the latest storyline, as he's only made one appearance since the L.A. screwjob, the night the recent PowerStable was formed, but since has remained behind-the-scenes while his [[TripleH son-in-law]] and [[StephanieMcMahon daughter]] are tormenting employees on television. He's also the reason they turned heel, as they screwed Bryan to appease Vince.

** Sometimes, Vince thinks the proceedings so important that he puts on his famous “cheaters” (reading glasses) to make sure he doesn't misread a cue card, or mis-dial a phone number. He does anyway. ** Ratings always increase when Vince is advertised for the show. If he weren't so old and frail, he'd be on the show at least semi-regularly. But yeah, dude's old. They supposedly use a spotlight to guide him on his way to the ring because he isn't able to see otherwise.

* GoneHorriblyRight: A RealLife example at the end of ''Survivor Series 2015''. He had Sheamus cash in his Money In The Bank out of fear of Reigns getting too much XPacHeat for being the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. As far as Reigns was concerned, it worked: the fans finally began getting behind him out of sympathy. But as far as both Sheamus and Vince himself were concerned, the fans suddenly found new targets for their displeasure, quickly culminating in some of the absolute worst ratings in the company's history.

* KnightOfCerebus: When he shows up, it's usually for something important. Especially if he's at his most evil as a heel.

* KnightOfCerebus: KnightOfCerebus: ** When he shows up, it's usually for something important. Especially if he's at his most evil as a heel.heel. ** Most people have accepted that Stone Cold was the greatest character in wrestling. In hindsight, Vince is the 2nd greatest character in wrestling. (Hard for a product to not drop when you lose the #1 ''and'' #2 greatest characters of all time.) Vince coming out with a mic was something to look forward to during Attitude. The crazy thing is that Vince is so great at manipulating a crowd directly, but [[TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes has no idea how to do it]] through anyone else.

** Wrestling/EricBischoff once stated that the only being closer to being the Devil than him was Vince, who was standing right in front of him. Vince's reaction? A ''smile''.
