A former WWE writer has recalled the moment Betty White left Vince McMahon absolutely livid after ignoring his on-air instructions.
The late legend – who died on New Year’s Eve just weeks before her 100th birthday – is fondly remembered by the wrestling world after she appeared as the guest host of Monday Night Raw back in 2014.
