Vince McMahon made several headlines back in June after it was revealed that he secretly paid $3 million as settlement to a departing employee. McMahon was under investigation right after this, and he had to retire.
It was later revealed that McMahon also paid $12 million in hush money to quite a few women over the last twenty years, In the end, this proved to be the nail in the coffin for McMahon as he retried right after this.
In fact, an additional $5 million dollars of unrecorded expenses were linked to Vince McMahon. While speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross was asked by a fan how McMahon would’ve run AEW. Ross proceeded to explain how McMahon would have done the job.
“He probably would like less wrestling. Vince has never watched the first minute of AEW. I would venture to say he hasn’t watched the first minute of any wrestling show since he’s been gone.
You think he knows all about Darby Allin? Like he knows all about Orange Cassidy, right? ‘What’s an Orange Cassidy, JR?’ Somewhere along the way, you’ve got to watch these shows, you’ve got to take the time to invest in the characters. So, I don’t know that he would be able to give you a real good feel or good feedback.”
Triple H took over WWE and since then, fans have been happier with the overall product as well. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for fans.
