Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman Talks About When Vince McMahon Called Him To Tell Him The Plan He Had For Him with Razor Ramon
I had a lot going on and I also had a New Japan tour for a Super Junior tournament, so I kinda had options, but I never thought I would get hired by WWE. I never thought they would even consider me. So I had the tryout, and I am at home waiting, it seemed like forever till they called. Then one day I pick up the phone and it’s Vince, and he runs this whole Razor Ramon story by me. Pat Patterson is on the line with him, they’re laying the whole thing out exactly how it happened. And I even mentioned, ‘Well I have this Japan tour.’ And they’re like ‘okay, well we’ll have Scott doing the promos’; challenging me to a re-match, putting the money up, until eventually it’s too much for me to pass up. Vince asks me what I think of it, and obviously I am blown away by the whole thing. Everyone else when they come into WWE, they just get three weeks of vignettes and some squash matches and it was so much greater the way I was brought in.
