The Night That Changed Everything

In 2004, Maven faced one of the most challenging moments of his life – the loss of his mother to cancer. On that fateful night, he received a personal phone call that he would never forget. The call wasn’t from a secretary or an assistant, but from Vince McMahon himself.

“A lot of people don’t realize it, but Vince lost a parent from cancer. In 2004, I lost my mom to cancer, and the very night that she passed away, I didn’t get a call from a secretary, I didn’t get a text, I got a personal phone call from Vince to tell me how truly sorry he was,” Maven shared.
