Vince McMahon was the Chairman of WWE and has seen several changes in the pro wrestling world over the years. Vince McMahon is also a very divisive figure in the industry thanks to many controversial things he has done over the years. Jim Cornette also commented on McMahon’s current plight.

Vince McMahon dominated headlines for all the wrong reasons after he secretly paid $3 million as a 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 Jim Cornette Experience show, Jim Cornette said that McMahon selling WWE could be the end of the wrestling business.

“I think the WWE without Vince McMahon in charge, one way or another – I’m not talking about creative, we know what I think about his creative – the WWE without Vince McMahon around will be a giant clusterfu*k. And then it will be sold and will turn into a corporate conglomerate that bears even less resemblance to pro wrestling than it does already.


All of the people who’ve never been in the wrestling will be tickled pink to work there because it’s such a lovely place filled with lollypops and sunshine and friendship and rainbows, and it will be the beginning of the end of the wrestling business. I’m thinking this wrestling war is the first time one side didn’t win and it didn’t propel both of their business to new heights. This is going to be the wrestling war that finishes the whole business off.”

Vince McMahon cut an opening promo on this week’s Smackdown but it was a very short one. According to some, it was all a bit tone-deaf. We’ll have to see what will become of Vince McMahon.
