Vince McMahon was the CEO of WWE before he had to step down following allegations of sexual misconduct and allegedly having paid $12 million in hush money in a huge scandal. He eventually retired from WWE for good and was replaced by his daughter Stephanie McMahon as the CEO of WWE. His son-in-law Triple H is now the Executive Vice President of Talent and Relations as well. Vince McMahon also lied about quitting WWE recently.
Russo has not worked directly with WWE since leaving the company in 2002, for the second time. While speaking on his YouTube channel, the former WWE writer confirmed that he began his new role as a consultant for the USA Network shortly before WrestleMania 36 in 2020.
“I’ve been keeping a little secret for the last two+ years. I want to come clean. Well, bro, I’m going to break the news to you on this show. I have not said this publicly before. From March, pre-Mania, bro, it was right before Mania in 2020, up until this past Mania in 2022. So basically, bro, for two years, I was consulting for the USA Network,” revealed Vince Russo. “For two years, bro, the USA Network paid me very, very, very well.”
