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.
Lana was released by WWE back in 2021 but was certainly featured prominently prior to that, especially thanks to her feud with Nia Jax. The current CJ Perry was involved in the more soap opera storylines including marrying Bobby Lashley as part of a love triangle with Miro and dating Dolph Ziggler.
Speaking to Liam Stewart of Inside The Ropes, Perry was asked about the allegations against Vince McMahon.
“I feel like it’s such a controversial issue right now. It’s really unfortunate everything, to be honest. I am a big believer that we should bring things into the light and even though I had an amazing relationship with Vince and he was very kind to me and taught me so many things that I am going to take with me for the rest of my life doesn’t mean that other people had very different experiences. In general, not with people in WWE, but in general, being a victim of sexual harassment and being a victim of people trying to pull favors from you that I really don’t talk about and maybe one day will be more comfortable talking on a bigger level. I have compassion and empathy for those women and I think it needs to be handled properly, however it is.
I’m thankful Vince taught me that. To not be scared to make mistakes, as long as you learn from it. I’ve been doing that. Another big lesson he taught me was the importance of forgiving. Ironically. ‘Hey, take responsibility for when you’re wrong, apologize. If people ask for forgiveness, I’ll forgive them, and I’ll never think about it again. It’s done.’ That’s a hard thing to do and it’s why he’s been in business with people for so long after a fallout,” she said.
“My thoughts and prayers go out to the women who feel they’ve been mistreated. With anything that is going on, unless you go through it, you don’t really fully understand.”
