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. Brian Gewirtz joined WWE as a writer in 1999 and left the company back in 2015.
In his book, “There’s Just One Problem…: True Tales from the Former, One-Time, 7th Most Powerful Person in WWE,” Gewirtz revealed that he used top superstars like The Rock, John Cena, and Chris Jericho to insult McMahon when he got upset with McMahon.
“I certainly couldn’t say highly insulting, flat-out disrespectful things to the man who signed my paychecks, but the Rock, Chris Jericho, John Cena, and plenty of others could. I’ll admit it— there were times when I got upset with Vince, I just bit my tongue and had a character express what I was feeling live on the air. It was a warped but very effective form of therapy.”
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.
