Vince McMahon was once furious with a former WWE star for a backstage incident that occurred with Alexa Bliss.
The former star in question is Dax Harwood, who recently detailed the incident that got him in trouble with the long-term WWE Chairman.
Speaking on FTR with Dax Harwood, the 38-year-old recalled him accidentally shoulder bumping into Bliss backstage. This led to McMahon accusing him of “touching women.”
“I remember we were supposed to come in and we were supposed to be very animated and happy that I won. So I come in, pretended that I was playing the trumpet or something and I was in a marching band and I march by Alexa [Bliss] and my shoulder barely brushed her shoulder, barely brushed it, I beg people to go back and watch it. As soon as it was over, we got called into the gorilla position and Vince chewed me out and he said, ‘Man, don’t touch women’,” said Dax Harwood.
Harwood said that the incident with Bliss set the tone for FTR throughout the rest of their WWE tenure.
“I was like, ‘Vince I was just walking past’, in a pre-tape you’re confined to a very small shot. Everyone has to be shot in that, you can’t get out of the picture and I was like, ‘I barely touched her, Vince’, it wasn’t like I gave her a shoulder tackle or I snubbed her like this. I was just walking past her and it barely brushed. So I remember getting in trouble which probably set the course for the rest of the tenure there,” added Dax Harwood. [0:04-1:03]
