Vince McMahon has been ruling over the world of pro wrestling since the 1980s. McMahon ruthlessly crushed competition, and WWE emerged as the biggest pro wrestling promotion following the demise of WCW. That being said, the Chairman is now in a very tough spot.
McMahon recently found himself in hot waters after several mainstream outlets produced stories wherein several former WWE employees called out the WWE chairman for sexual harassment.
McMahon was replaced by his daughter Stephanie McMahon as the CEO in the wake of the allegations. The trouble seems to be only escalating as more mainstream media outlets are working on the allegations.
According to PW Insider, HBO and the Wall Street Journal are among the outlets working on the stories. The reporters are also working to establish contact with former female employees of the WWE.
PWInsider.com has learned from someone who was contacted for a potential interview that HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel has been prepping a potential story on the McMahon allegations. They have been attempting to reach out to former female employees of the company.
We can also confirm that reporters for the Wall Street Journal are working on another potential story on McMahon that they expect to drop in the coming weeks and that they’ve been working to connect with former WWE women’s wrestlers in recent days.
Despite the ongoing investigation, Vince McMahon isn’t said to be under any kind of pressure to leave the WWE. The boss wields an iron grip over the promotion. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next in the latest Vince McMahon scandal.
