He said that Vince is less interactive with referees compare to the superstars in the company. Vince mostly use agents to deal with referees told by Korderas.
Here what Jimmy Korderas said: “He’s not as hands on with refs as he is with wrestlers. At the same time, when he sees something that he really likes, he will acknowledge it. If he thinks there’s something we can correct, he’ll point out that as well. Generally, he leaves the referees to the agents because there’s this persona that surrounds Vince that maybe all the refs are too intimidated by him.”

“Edge comes up to me and says, ‘you got a minute? Taker and I are requesting for you to ref our match at Mania 24.’ I figured they had the stroke to get it done. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. And as the weeks go on, you go, ‘oh boy, I better not screw this up.’ The pressure is on now.” (H/T: Wrestling Inc)
