* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: During his 1998 angle with Mick Foley, Vince explicitly told Mick not to tell him what he was planning to do during their bits, so Vince could react normally to his stupidity. It led to some of the funniest bits ever on WWE programming.

Vincent Kennedy "Vince" [=McMahon=], Jr. (born August 24, 1945) is a third generation wrestling promoter, chairman and CEO of Wrestling/{{WWE}} and patriarch of the [=McMahon=] WrestlingFamily. He is also the man who revolutionized professional wrestling forever by taking the World Wrestling Federation and turning it from a regional territory into a mainstream national promotion in the mid-1980s, where it enjoyed massive success and eventually turned into the multi-billion dollar empire we now know as World Wrestling Entertainment.

He also has decades of on-camera experience in the promotion; first as a play-by-play announcer, and, after 1997, as [[RepulsiveRingmaster the evil boss character in charge of the promotion]]. The subtle shift in his performance deserves to be studied at Julliard: Vince [=McMahon=] wore bow ties and [[EyeTake bugged his eyes out]] a lot. ''Mister'' [=McMahon=], on the other hand, led a family of super-villains, feuded with God, mocked [[Wrestling/JimRoss JR's]] health condition, and dressed up as a judge so that he could throw Wrestling/EricBischoff in a garbage truck.

* TheChewToy: While he might take himself too seriously in real life, think about the hilarious and goofy stuff his character has done on TV. The ''Rocky'' montage before his match w/ Austin at St. Valentines Day Massacre, peeing his pants on TV, getting hit over the head with a bed pan, taking a million Stunners, chair shots, garbage can shots, stop sign shots, getting thrown through tables, off the side of a cage, and God knows what else.

* AlasPoorVillain: Upon being relieved of duty he gets a 'THANK YOU VINCE!' chant from the crowd as the show closed, especially notable as not five minutes earlier the crowd was cheering at the news of him being replaced. Likely because the promo started off like any other in such a situation - someone (HHH in this case) coming out to interrupt a promo). But once the crowd figured out that this was basically Vince's retirement speech from active involvement and the symbolic handing of the reins to HHH, they started changing the chant. You can tell that Vince himself was a little taken aback by the emotion.

* BestServedCold: Vince has the elaborate vengeance plans of a 10-year-old. Case in point: WCW ''Night of the Champions''. Was there really ever any doubt? Everyone knows Vince stood by helplessly for 84 weeks as Wrestling/EricBischoff steamrolled him in the ratings, jeering and mocking him all the while. Vince ''could'' have taken the high road and let the promotion have its final day in the sun before the great vhangeover. Instead, he proceeded to make himself and Shane the focal point of ''[[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro Nitro]]'', turning what could have been Flair and Sting riding off in glory and turning it into one big [=McMahon=] love-fest / PPV ad. Not that Eric wouldn't have done the same, and worse.

*** Even WCW originally implied Vince was this to the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder [=nWo=]]] before scrapping the idea when WWE threatened to sue them........only for Vince to imply it even more when he brought in the [=nWo=] to be his [[TheDragon Dragons]] in his goal to kill his own company after he had purchased WCW, even going as far as being the one to kill the group altogether once [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he had no need for them anymore]]. He also appeared directly on WCW television during the final episode of Nitro, playing the BigBad of both WWE AND WCW.

** 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. Except Macho Man.

*** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] with Orton, as he'd won the ''Wrestling/RoyalRumble'' and was thus promised a world title match at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}}'', and had threatened to sue WWE and get a court order to stop ''[=WrestleMania=]'' from taking place if he was fired before the event. He changed tact and started demanding he be fired after realizing how much it would hurt the [=McMahon=] family to not have the event take place.

** Shown in his 2012 match with CM Punk. Not only did he not mind taking some nasty shots, he came close to ''winning'' without outside interference to the point that Punk tried to ''run away''.

** Shown in One of his hallmark moments had to have been his sudden reappearance in the 2012 match Cena/Punk feud. Long story short, Vince challenged Punk to a fight and went toe-to-toe with CM Punk.him at the end of the episode. This was crazy awesome 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. Not only did he not mind taking some nasty shots, he came close to ''winning'' without outside interference to the point that Punk tried to ''run away''.

** Vince once started his own religion called "[[ParodyReligion [=McMahonism=]]]" and compared himself to God during a promo he cut while inside a church.
** He did this earlier in the 1990s, but that only lasted for one show
