WWE Hall of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts spent numerous years working under Vince McMahon, which is exactly why he is aware of many stories regarding the WWE Executive Chairman. It appears Roberts made a claim about McMahon’s affairs with his co-workers recently as well.
Jake Roberts worked in WWE for many years and knows how Vince McMahon functions. Roberts even blasted Vince McMahon previously for humiliating people in WWE and then some.
Vince McMahon made headlines back in June last year after it came to light that he secretly paid $3 million as a hush money deal to a departing paralegal. It was eventually revealed that McMahon paid $12 million in hush money to several women over the two decades. Afterwards, an additional $5 million dollars of unrecorded expenses were linked to Vince McMahon as well.
All of this led to Vince McMahon retiring last year, but it didn’t really last all that long. While speaking to DJ Vlad, Jake Roberts claimed that he had heard of Vince McMahon having affairs with three of his co-workers. Roberts further added that McMahon had paid hush money in the past.
“(Vince McMahon paying ‘hush money’) It’s not the first time. (If Roberts has heard about things like these happen before) Oh god, yeah. (When asked about how many incidents he’s heard about) Three. (On whether Vince McMahon was having affairs with his co-workers and paying them off afterwards) Yeah. This is the time that it got outside the (bubble).”
Vince McMahon himself admitted to personal mistakes when he was asked about the hush money scandal recently. Regardless, Vince McMahon will always remain a controversial figure no matter what and that’s unlikely to ever change.
