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 last year. Many fans believed he was retired forever, but that was not the case. This is because Vince McMahon returned to WWE last week and last night, he became the Executive Chairman of WWE once again after his daughter Stephanie McMahon resigned. Nick Khan is now the sole CEO of WWE while Triple H remains the Creative Head of WWE.
Following Vince McMahon’s return to WWE, there have been rumors that he plans on selling the company to Saudi Arabia. However, those rumors were eventually proven to be untrue.
According to recent reports, Vince McMahon’s return to WWE is primarily to facilitate the potential sale of the company. There are several potential buyers for WWE, including Saudi Arabia. It is speculated that the kingdom, which has been the subject of controversy, maybe the only prospective buyer willing to retain McMahon in a position of power.
Despite his polarizing reputation, Vince McMahon has displayed moments of generosity and compassion towards others, including both minor acts of kindness and substantial actions.
While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, Hornswoggle explained that Kevin Dunn would refer to Hornswoggle/Dylan simply as “the midget” when discussing production matters. McMahon would then proceed to blast Dunn for the slur.
“Kevin Dunn on a headset. I was underneath the ring, and I could always hear the conversations between everyone. Everyone. The producers in the back, Kevin Dunn in the truck, Vince in the back.
Whenever he had to, like, say a specific direction. I was like, on this headset, I loved it. I was like, Oh, I get to hear a lot of things.
So Kevin Dunn’s like ‘Vince, we need to figure out how to get the midget back to the back.’ [As Vince] ‘Goddammit Kevin! We don’t use that word. He’s a little person.’
[Dunn’s response] ‘Oh, sorry. Sorry, Vince. Sorry.’ And it was like apology after apology after apology. And they apologized to me, too. It’s like, I don’t care.”
