"Vince had this woman up there when I got there, boy you talk about a death knell to the company, she was horrible. The more I tried to point out to Vince that this woman is poison, hell, the stronger she got in the company. What happens is everybody would jump through rings for Vince. Vince would sneeze and three people would bump into each other trying to get a hanky for him. So this is what he sees. When you're sitting around the dining room table for the booking meetings, Vince would come up with an idea and three people will tell him three reasons he didn't even think of why it's the greatest idea that's ever been thought of. That's what Vince sees. Vince will give little speeches about wanting 'independent thinking' and people to speak up if they disagree. All of them will say, 'Yes, Vince, that's why I like working for you. You are so open to everything.' So that's what Vince sees. What he doesn't see is this finely honed skill either before the fact or after the fact of swaying Vince around so he comes up with this idea that is someone else's idea, but that he thinks is his idea. He turns on a wrestler thinking it was his idea, but it was someone else's. They'll do it with little innuendo because they know McMahon. It's the most fascinating, incredible thing to watch. Some of the insanity you have seen go on, you'd think, 'Why in the world would they do that?' Well, I just told you why."
Jerry Jarrett, 3/2/97 Torch Talk
