WWE is selling the company to Endeavor, and now UFC and World Wrestling Entertainment will be their own combined publicly traded company. This came after a controversial time for WWE, filled with a hush money scandal, but Vince McMahon is ready to put that in the past.
CNBC’s Squawk in the Box recently had a chance to speak with Vince McMahon for a rare interview. During that time on the show, Mr. McMahon was asked about the hush money scandal that took him out of WWE in the first place.
Vince McMahon admitted to making mistakes, both professionally and personally, but he has owned up to them all. He’s not sure what kind of legacy he will have, but it’s clear that Mr. McMahon isn’t too worried about things now.
“I’ve made mistakes, obviously, personally and professionally through my 50-year career. I’ve owned up to every single one of them and then moved on. I’m not sure of the legacy stuff. I’m not going to write it. I don’t know. I want to say, as someone who had an extraordinary amount of fun, great passion for what they did and wound up with the biggest deal he’s ever done in his life.”
Vince McMahon’s hush money scandal created a huge change in WWE, as the landscape shifted. Then he returned a few months later, literally holding the company’s media rights deal as hostage, and he resumed his seat of power.
Now that Vince McMahon has ushered in a company sale, only time will tell what’s next. We certainly know that Vince McMahon isn’t leaving any time soon.
