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 Russo said that the 77-year-old WWE veteran did not have anything else to do apart from running WWE, the largest pro wrestling company in the history of the professional wrestling business. The former WWE writer recently spoke on this week’s Legion of RAW, where he he said that he believes the retirement is a farce and that every major decision in WWE will still go through Vince McMahon in the end.
“I worked with Vince. I know Vince. Guys, if you really think Vince McMahon is retired, you’re clueless. What do you think Vince McMahon is doing, bro? Reading a book? Going for a stroll on the beach like hanging out at the pool in Connecticut,” said Vince Russo. “Retirement basically meant I could not show my face up at TV, at the office anymore, but if you don’t think, bro, every thing is still not getting run by him, and he is not calling the shots, then you don’t know Vince McMahon.”
