Vince McMahon made headlines back in June 2022 for all the wrong reasons after it was revealed that he secretly paid $3 million in a hush-money scandal. It was all downhill for McMahon, as he was eventually forced to retire from the company he helped build. Of course, McMahon made his way back into the news later on after a couple of other allegations resurfaced. In spite of all this, Ric Flair still considers McMahon his hero.

Vince McMahon was accused of sexual assault by former WWE referee Rita Chatterton, who accused him of the act back in 1992. Things did not end just there either as a lot of developments took place.

In November 2022, McMahon’s attorney received a letter from Chatterton, in which she demanded $11.75 million in compensation for the alleged assault after her allegations were brought back to the public’s attention in 2022. McMahon eventually reached multi-million dollar settlement with Chatterton.

In addition to that, Vince McMahon was also hit with a lawsuit by a spa manager. It has been a while since the allegations and some people seem to have forgotten them after McMahon returned to WWE and eventually sold it to UFC’s parent company Endeavor


While speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience, Ric Flair talked about WWE getting sold to Endeavor. During the discussion, Flair talked about Vince McMahon and how he doesn’t see Vince taking orders from anyone.

”I just can’t see Vince taking orders. That will be a strange one for me if someone tried to tell Vince what the hell to do. He’s my hero.

I judge people by how they treat me and he has treated me like…I’ve never had anyone treat me with more respect in this business. He’s a great guy. I don’t care what he does. He’s my hero.’

Vince McMahon is already back in the Creative department in ways. Regardless, Vince McMahon will continue to do what he wants to, especially after the merger and no one can really stop him now.
