WWE boss Vince McMahon “loved” running through ideas on how to destroy a dummy dressed up as superstar Seth Rollins for a segment with Dean Ambrose.
‘Lunatic Fringe’ Dean destroyed the model lookalike of his former Shield partner on WWE Raw in the run-up to their October clash at Hell in a Cell.
Speaking on the I Am Jericho podcast, Dean revealed a strong creative bond with head honcho Vince – and joked his boss was absorbed by possibilities on how to manipulate the mannequin.
“I think Vince sometimes, particularly with me… he finds certain things where he’s living vicariously [through me],” Dean told host Chris Jericho.
“He’ll be like: 'I want you to say you’re going to rip his face off! Take this mannequin and chop its hand off! What else could you do to this mannequin? You could rip its hair out.’ And he’s like really into it!”
Dean continued: “He loved it. I was in Vince’s office with this mannequin and this bag of tools laid out on the floor. And Vince is looking at the tools, and looking at the mannequin and describing what he’s might do to the mannequin - and it as like nobody else was in the room.”
The 29-year-old former US champion also detailed how Vince responded to a mischievous question about how a certain part of the male anatomy should be referred to on prime-time television.
He added: “I asked Vince in the same conversation: ‘If I was going to say that I was going to cut his balls off, what would be the word I would use for balls?’ And he says ‘testicles’, with no hesitation!”
