The world of professional wrestling is no stranger to behind-the-scenes tales, and recently, two former WWE stars, Maçé and Mansoor, most recently known as the Maximum Male Models, have come forward with a captivating story about their time in the company and their interactions with the WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon.

Maçé and Mansoor, despite having established careers in professional wrestling, decided to embrace the male model gimmick wholeheartedly.

They believed that this new direction could potentially open doors to more significant opportunities within the company. Mansoor shared on a Twitch stream that the idea of the Maximum Male Models was presented to them as a golden opportunity.

Vince McMahon had been keen on introducing a male model act for nearly eight months, and this was his vision coming to life.

Vince McMahon: Personal Involvement

It’s not every day that Vince McMahon gets personally involved in the rehearsals of WWE segments. However, for the Maximum Male Models, he made an exception.

Mansoor recounted a particular rehearsal for their fashion show segment. Vince not only came out to guide them but also gave specific instructions, such as how to turn and even a particular dislike for white pants.

Mace added that it was a rare sight to see McMahon step out of his office for rehearsals, making them wonder if this was their ticket to superstardom.

The Downfall and Departure from TV

Despite the initial push and McMahon’s personal interest, things didn’t go as planned for the Maximum Male Models. Mansoor revealed that after a segment where they took photographs of another wrestler, Otis, their TV appearances started dwindling.

They were informed that their act needed a revamp and, in the meantime, would be taken off TV. This led to them being unintentionally included in matches they weren’t supposed to be a part of, causing confusion backstage.

The final nail in the coffin was when they were mistakenly included in a battle royal for the Intercontinental Title shot.

Following these events, their travels with the company ceased, and although they were told they would be repackaged, it never materialised.

Setting the Record Straight

During their Twitch stream, both Maçé and Mansoor addressed some misconceptions. They clarified that they had never spoken ill of fellow wrestler LA Knight and, in fact, had only positive things to say about him.

In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, stories like these provide a unique insight into the workings of the industry and the challenges faced by its performers.

Maçé and Mansoor’s tale is a testament to the unpredictable nature of the business, where even the backing of someone as influential as Vince McMahon doesn’t guarantee sustained success.
