Stephanie McMahon In Big Legal Trouble?

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 wellVince McMahon also lied about quitting WWE recently.



MLW is still in the process of suing WWE, having filed an Anti-Trust lawsuit against the promotion back in January.

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that a recent hearing in the lawsuit, originally scheduled for Thursday, October 27, ended up being pushed back all the way to December 5. This is the second time the hearing has been delayed/canceled, having been originally scheduled for September. The hearing was delayed due to its judge, Judge Edward J. Davila, overseeing the high profile -but slow moving- case involving biotech entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes.

Meltzer further noted that Davila had yet to rule on WWE’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit, filed back in May, with WWE claiming MLW’s case was without merit. It’s expected a ruling will be made at the December 5 hearing; should Davila rule in MLW’s favor, Meltzer notes the next step in the case would likely be discovery proceedings, which would allow MLW to present further evidence. Stephanie McMahon is alleged of getting MLW’s deal with Tubi pulled.
