The Godfather Credits Shane McMahon For Coming Up With 'The Ho Train' Move

It was a McMahon who came up with The Godfather's signature 'Ho Train' move.

Appearing as a guest on Generation of Wrestling, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that even though he doesn't know who's idea it was to call it 'The Ho Train,' he distinctly remembers Shane McMahon being behind all the flair added to his corner splash.

"Oh my God, I don't know. Calling it 'The Ho Train,' I don't know who came up with that," he began by saying. "Me having girls was me. The move, 'The Ho Train,' Shane McMahon came up with that. I don't know who came up with calling the girls 'The Ho Train.' Shane was like, 'Before you do that splash, you should do something where you shoot them in,' -- Shane McMahon, this was all his idea. 'You should shoot them in and wind up.' He's like, 'You remember Soul Train?' He goes, 'Do it like Ho Train! and then splash them.' That's where that came from. I was like, 'Okay, I'll try it.' The name Ho Train, I don't know where that came from, probably me or my wife. My wife comes up with a lot of that."

During a recent discussion with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Godfather (real names Charles Wright) shared that it was his wife's idea for him to be a babyface pimp in WWE. You can read his full comments here.

Wright was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as The Godfather in 2016.
