Vince McMahon praised ex-WWE star Mojo Rawley for his athletic skills and also for his work ethic when he was part of the WWE. The former Andre the Giant Memorial winner said he felt enlivened after receiving the praise from Vince McMahon.
Mojo Rawley moved to the world of pro wrestling in 2012 after playing soccer. He learned his trade in NXT before being named to the main lineup in 2016. He won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33 in 2017, which was his greatest achievement in WWE.
In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Mojo Rawley spoke about meeting Vince McMahon where the WWE Chairman highlighted some of Rawley’s best qualities.
“I remember meeting Vince once and I felt pretty empowered afterwards. He sat me down and said, ‘Okay, you may be one of the best athletes in the company. You are maybe one of the strongest in the company. You have one of the best attitudes and work ethic. ‘ He literally went down the list of all these superlatives, with me being number one or the top three. Then he said, ‘We just have to figure out what to do with you.’ I remember thinking, I think you just said it. How can we not use this? There are so many things you could do with it. But you never know what’s going on behind the scenes “says Mojo Rawley of his conversation with Vince McMahon.
The former WWE star stated that corporate wrestlers have to work hard all the time to impress the people who matter to WWE. He also revealed that he presented several ideas to WWE, but many of them didn’t materialize.
