Vito informs that he was living with a girl many years ago and they were having issues. He was leaving to work overseas for 6 months so he decided to end things with her. The girl didn’t take things well, threw a wine bottle at him and drew a machete on him. He ran out of the house and called the police and when they arrived he said that he didn’t want to press charges, he just wanted to get his stuff and leave.
When the police entered the house and questioned her she said that Vito pushed her and the police were forced to arrest him because of her accusation, even though it didn’t happen. While in court, the Judge read between the lines and released him and his ex-girlfriend eventually admitted to lying. She was facing 5 years in prison but he dropped the charges.
Vito informs that he’s still friends with her to this day and she has spoken to Vito’s current wife on multiple occasions, confirming to her that Vito never laid a hand on her once. Vito shared this story to prove that just because someone is accused of something, that doesn’t automatically mean they’re guilty. He believes that people should wait before passing judgement in these cases.
Lane asks Vito if he thinks WWE did the right thing by suspending Swann immediately before anything has been proven. Vito thinks that with all that’s going on in the world today WWE probably had to suspend Swann immediately in order to save face.
