Vince McMahon has been going through a lot of hardships in light of recent allegations. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Vince McMahon paid off several women from WWE throughout the course of 16 years. He paid a total of $12 million in hush money in order to keep allegations of sexual misconduct hidden. That didn’t stop Vince from showing up to work.

McMahon stepped down as the CEO of WWE. As Stephanie McMahon now handles the administrative wheels of WWE, Vince McMahon continues to have the same creative control as he did before.

The former CEO was at SmackDown tapings for the latest episode. According to a report from PW Insider, Vince McMahon apparently held 100% creative control over the show. He made a lot of pre-planned changes, as it was essentially the “Vince McMahon show.”

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon were not available at the time of the tapings. Vince McMahon isn’t really bringing any attention to the investigation or the allegations with his backstage behavior.


WWE talent already believed that more bad news was going to come out about Vince. McMahon also planned to meet up with John Cena after the release of the damning Wall Street Journal report.
