Vince McMahon is known by many for his quirky traits that only he would do.
When WWE began regularly advertising WrestleMania, Vince McMahon wanted a word that would describe the two-day event. Then one day during a creative meeting Mr. McMahon instructed those within the company that he wanted the “STUPENDOUS” term constantly repeated.
Vince McMahon told the staff “This will hype up the event and make it feel larger than life.”
When commentators started using the term they apparently were not saying it with enthusiasm.
Bryan Saxton was told by Vince McMahon “Louder!, you gotta make them feel it!”
This is the reason the audience constantly heard that word repeated. When McMahon comes up with an idea there is no way of getting around it.
The “STUPENDOUS” phrase may have did the trick as Stephanie McMahon recently announced the WrestleMania 38 as the highest grossing event in WWE history.
“This past weekend, WrestleMania 38 emanated live across two nights from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX and became WWE’s highest-grossing and most-attended event in company history with 156,352 total fans. The most stupendous two-night WrestleMania in history saw 13.3M in-airing social media interactions across both nights becoming the second most engaging WrestleMania of all time.”
We personally attended WrestleMania 38 and we can vouch it was indeed “STUPENDOUS”. Stay tuned to Slice Wrestling for the latest updates.
