Vince McMahon was the Chairman of WWE and is one of the biggest names in the pro wrestling industry. Vince McMahon is also a very divisive figure in the industry and it is not hard to see why. Jimmy Smith also commented on Vince McMahon’s situation and its ramifications.

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 willingly stepping down from his position as Chairman of WWE. While speaking on his ‘Unlocking the Cage’ show on SiriusXM, Jimmy Smith stated that he believes WWE’s culture will come under the scanner after Vince McMahon’s controversy.

“What is going to get investigated over the next couple of months is the culture and the communication between the people who sit next to Vince McMahon. That is what’s gonna get looked at. Why? A culture’s hard to hide. You can hide an act. You do something and you make a mistake and you make amends for that mistake and all these things, you can do that. It’s what is going on communication-wise behind the scenes. That’s what this investigation is gonna be looking at. They’re gonna be looking at the executive culture of the WWE. The good news from my perspective is I have spent five minutes total talking to any executive from WWE. They don’t really have any reason to talk to me.”


Vince McMahon cut an opening promo on this week’s Smackdown but it was very short one. According to some, it was all a bit tone-deaf. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing story.
