Vince McMahon is an interesting character. You never quite know what is going to catch his eye but one AEW star recalled McMahon taking a liking to his beard. That AEW star was Lance Archer.
“We were supposed to have all these vignettes getting ready for our debut and it didn’t happen because the show changed all the time. We worked a dark match, we get done, come through the curtain and Billy Kidman is like, ‘Hey, Vince likes your beard.’ ‘What?’ ‘Vince likes your beard.’ I walked away, didn’t know anything. Billy came to FCW and decided to tell the story and the whole point was, ‘You never know what Vince is going to like.’
Vince piped in on the headset and said, ‘Has Archer always had that beard?’ I’d see Vince every single week for the last three months, shook his hand, said hello, but he had no reason to pay attention to me. Now I’m on his TV screen, he sees my beard, asks Billy if I’ve always had it. ‘I really like his beard. Tell him I like his beard.’ Next week, we were on TV, me and Curt, got a little bit of a push until it went downhill.”
Archer worked for WWE as Vance Archer before being released in 2010. He is currently in AEW and will face Cody for the TNT Championship at Double or Nothing this Saturday.
