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. While speaking on Legion of RAW, Vince Russo was very blunt about Vince McMahon’s current situation.
“Chris, I’ve got to tell you, man. It is funny, bro, because I know you and I are both Christian guys, and I’m watching this show now, and I’m kind of thinking about the talent,” stated Vince Russo. “I know we’re not supposed to talk about this, and I’m not going to talk about it to ruffle any feathers, but I do want to say this. I would have a real hard time working for that man if I was working there.”
