It appears more information regarding the Vince McMahon allegations will be revealed soon.
On June 15th, the Wall Street Journal published a report that revealed Vince McMahon agreed to pay a former employee $3 million in “hush money” over an alleged affair. The Wall Street Journal reported more information on July 8th, adding that the 76-year-old billionaire allegedly paid $12 million to four women over a 16 year period.
Since the allegations came to light, McMahon has voluntarily stepped away from his position as CEO of WWE. Meanwhile, the WWE Board of Directors has retained the law firm Simpson Thatcher & Bartlett LLP to conduct a formal investigation regarding the situation.
Reporters from the Wall Street Journal teased that more information about the allegations would come soon. Now, it appears McMahon’s situation is about to get more mainstream coverage.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, ” more stories are being worked on by a number of mainstream outlets.” The report noted that the Wall Street Journal and HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel could have stories ready in the coming weeks.
After the first Wall Street Journal report in June, McMahon appeared on multiple episodes of WWE programming. The former CEO never alluded to the controversy, instead choosing to speak in character and promote RAW and SmackDown. His daughter, Stephanie McMahon, has taken over the role of CEO for the time being.
