Vince McMahon has been WWE Chairman since 1982 when he bought WWE from his father Vince Sr and his partners. McMahon saw quite a few changes in his company over the last few decades on top of that. All through that, the WWE Chairman continued to adapt to the changing times.
However, many fans now feel that he is out of touch and simply has no idea what is good for a WWE Superstar and their growth. The WWE Chairman is larger than life in many ways and he also has his own oddities and problems as well. He also threatened a WWE star in a recent gym video. Vince McMahon has been accused of an affair.
Vince McMahon has stepped down as CEO of WWE while the investigation is ongoing. His daughter, Stephanie McMahon, has since been moved into his position on an interim basis. McMahon is still in charge of creative for the company.
Speaking about the matter on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s The Wrestling Outlaws, Vince Russo stated that Vince McMahon paid for the settlement with his own money, so it isn’t any issue.
“Well, here’s the thing with Vince, he’s going out on SmackDown and RAW, you know, thinking that he’s got nothing to worry about, and in this case, he doesn’t. But if I’m Vince, I’m worried about the Pandora’s box. That is what I’m worried about. The only implication would have been if he had used WWE’s money. [Jerry] McDevitt made it clear.”
Russo has stated on another podcast that he heard an unverified story involving someone allegedly walking in on the WWE icon with a secretary.
