Vince McMahon was the Chairman of WWE and is one of the most controversial names in the pro wrestling world. He has been part of many iconic moments in the company, but not all of them for the best reasons. WWE talent are also curious about Vince McMahon’s appearance on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown.

Vince McMahon managed to make headlines for all the wrong reasons after he secretly paid $3 million as settlement to a departing employee. For that reason, McMahon is currently under investigation.

This led to McMahon stepping down from his position as Chairman of WWE. McMahon will also speak with talent before this week’s Smackdown. According to PW Insider, there are many in the company who are curious whether McMahon will address the allegations made against him.

”There are a lot of people in the company waiting to see what happens today when McMahon appears “in character” on Smackdown tonight and what, if anything, he’ll be able to say about the investigation. 


We’ve heard from a few in the company who felt McMahon appearing tonight in the wake of the investigation was “right on point for Vince McMahon” as he’s always bucked any sort of authority infringing upon him but others have scratched their head about the decision.  Obviously, with everyone talking about McMahon, it’s designed to be a ratings ploy and to get everyone watching and talking about the company.  Whether it’s a wise idea, we’ll only know in hindsight.”

Vince is said to have thrown away the script for the show. It will be very interesting to see how he handles this before a national TV audience.
