Vince McMahon was in the news for all back in June after it was revealed that he secretly paid $3 million as a hush money deal to a departing WWE employee. McMahon was under investigation following this, and he decided to retire. He is now being accused of not caring about WWE.

It was eventually brought to light that McMahon paid $12 million in hush money to quite few women over the last twenty years. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back for McMahon, as his career in WWE was basically over at this point. In fact, an additional $5 million dollars of unrecorded expenses were linked to Vince McMahon.

While speaking on Smack Talk, Dutch Mantell alleged that Vince McMahon didn’t care about WWE during the last days of being the Chairman.

“He [Triple H] took his time and turned it around. Now it has so much positivity to it. And it took just a good person who understands the wrestling business and storytelling because I don’t think Vince gave a cr*p. He was making money, and he was, ‘Hey, I’m on rest; you guys figure it out.


I think he put the personal feeling to it that he might just not like this guy because of a personal reason; I’m not saying that’s what happened. I don’t think he wanted to be sat down and told this long storyline. You do this for 50 years, and you get burned out,

Vince McMahon also agreed to pay the cost of the investigation. Triple H is in charge of WWE now and fans couldn’t be happier. We’ll have to see what other changes The Game will make in the long run.
