Many well known performers have competed at WrestleMania and that includes Vince McMahon. During his time with WWE, Vince McMahon faced off against some big names on the Grandest Stage of Them All, but plans for Vince McMahon to wrestle a match at WrestleMania 24 were apparently scrapped.

Back in 2008, Fit Finlay faced off against JBL in a Belfast Brawl and Hornswoggle accompanied Finlay to the ring. JBL picked up the win, but during a recent appearance on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Hornswoggle explained that originally the match was supposed to be Finlay vs. Vince McMahon.

“We had the whole thing with Bradshaw (JBL), and it was such an awesome story, but I come to find out years later it was supposed to be Finlay and Vince at that WrestleMania. Not only that – they were gonna try and make it for a WWE title. It was supposed to be that.

“And I was like, man, if it was against Vince – JBL match is enormous, the build to it and everything – if it was against Vince, can you imagine how much that build would have been, at that time?

“But man I’m very grateful that the match was so fun, and JBL’s just the man, he’s the absolute man, and he’d been nothing but great with me. There’s the spot with the trash can in that match that wasn’t talked about (beforehand). Literally the last second I save my own life by just going ‘nooo’ (dodges).

“He just whips this trash can because he saw me, and that’s him thinking on the fly, and he whips the trash can. I had no idea, it wasn’t talked about, but it’s like the highlight of the match.”
