Bob Costas discusses Vince McMahon on CNN’s Piers Morgan Live

Bob Costas was on Piers Morgan Live yesterday on CNN and one of the topics discussed for a short time was his interview that he did with Vince McMahon back in March 2001 on his show “On The Record.”

A clip aired showing Vince McMahon tearing Costas a new one, leaning over the table, intimidating him, and telling Costas that if he saw some WWE he would actually know what he was talking about.

Costas told Morgan that the segment was originally set for 15 minutes but the HBO producers thought it was so great they let it run for almost 30 minutes with no commercials.

Costas said that he didn’t think Vince McMahon would actually do that to him and since he outweighed him by 2 to 1 he decided to stand back and let Vince be the aggressor. Plus, he couldn’t go far back with his seat since he’d fall off the stage.

The WWE Chairman and CEO sent Piers Morgan a statement to read about Costas on the show, which Morgan read.

“I used to think Bob Costas was a pompous, arrogant, self absorbed, pseudo-intellectual little twerp. I used to think that. But now, 12 years later, I’ve come to realize he’s not really a twerp. LOL,” McMahon wrote.

The day after the actual show in 2001, Costas said that McMahon called him and asked for a rematch!
