Former WWE Star Reveals ‘Weird Rule’ About WrestleMania Gear

Former WWE Star Reveals ‘Weird Rule’ About WrestleMania Gear

While the majority of WWE stars pay for their own gear, and are therefore able to personalise it, it seems there is still a Vince McMahon approval process.

During an appearance on Sitting Ringside, former WWE star Matt Cardona (Zack Ryder) discussed a strange story about a time that Vince refused to approve the gear of another former star, Curt Hawkins.

“Hawkins [Brian Myers] also had to politic — there’s this weird rule where you have to like present your gear that you’re gonna wear at WrestleMania and for some reason, Vince [McMahon] said he couldn’t wear it. So, Brian wanted to politic to get him to allow him to wear it which he did.”

That takes a lot of balls. Getting a no from Vince McMahon, refusing to hear it and then changing his mind. All I can say is, well done Curt Hawkins.

Hawkins and Ryder were both released in 2020, and both are currently wrestling for IMPACT.
