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.
Dave Meltzer and Garrett Gonzales covered Vince McMahon’s most recent scandal, where he was said to have paid $12 million in hush money to women over the years. The Wall Street Journal’s Joe Palazzolo and Ted Mann made it clear more allegations are to come.
Palazzolo said it’s “probably not done yet” as they are continuing to report on the story. They don’t have anything “in their back pocket” in terms of allegations and nothing they have heard that was larger than the $7.5 million payout.
“That’s a figure in the murky world of NDAs that clearly suggests a big secret being kept. That was one of the red flags that signaled to us that we needed to get to the bottom of what it was and what that was for,” he said.
