Chuck Palumbo: I Always Had An Open-Door Policy With Vince McMahon. He Was Always Nice To Me

Chuck Palumbo talks about his relationship with Vince McMahon.

Chuck Palumbo is one of only a handful of talents from the final days of WCW that had a real moment of superstardom in WWE. From his time as Tag Team Champions with Billy Gunn, including a successful title defense at WrestleMania, during his brief time on SmackDown as a motorcycle enthusiast, Chuck Palumbo was a WWE Superstar.

Competing in WWE from 2001 until the latter portion of that decade, Chuck Palumbo was also around at a time where Vince McMahon was more accessible to talent.

Speaking about his relationship with Vince McMahon in a new interview with Sean Ross Sapp, Chuck Palumbo would say that personally, Vince McMahon was always nice to him and he always had an open-door policy with the boss.

"Personally, I had an open-door policy with him. He was always kind to me. We always spoke. Did we call each other on the phone? No. But, at the shows, always kind to me. Always spoke. I believe at times he was supportive of me. He told me, you know? But, he’s a busy guy. He’s got all these other things to worry about. When they went corporate things really changed. His responsibilities became huge. So, I don’t know. I felt like we had a good relationship. Never had an issue with him. Never had any problems."

Regarding some of the rumors of Vince McMahon's behavior towards talent, Chuck Palumbo would say that he never took anything personally as he always understood the nature of the wrestling business and understood that at the end of the day, Vince McMahon was a businessman.

"You hear stories and you hear rumors about different things. You hear crazy stuff. What’s true, what’s not, I don’t know. But, I can’t really honestly say anything—he’s a businessman. So, I never took anything personally, you know what I mean? That being said, I understand he’s running a business. To be honest with you, I’ve picked up so much about life and business outside of the wrestling business from him. I can’t thank him enough. I’ll mention it again, navigating through that dynamic of the wrestling business gave me so much life experience outside of it. That’s really what I took from the business."

These days, Vince McMahon is still on TV with young talent. He has taken a liking to Austin Theory on WWE Monday Night Raw.
