Interim WWE Chairwoman and CEO Stephanie McMahon has commented on the current investigation by WWE’s Board into her father, Vince McMahon.
It was reported on June 15th that Vince McMahon was being investigated by WWE’s board of directors over allegations that he paid $3 million to a former employee with whom he had previously had an affair.
It was also noted that the board’s investigation has also unearthed older non-disclosure agreements that surround claims of misconduct made by other former female WWE employees that involve both Vince McMahon and WWE’s Head of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis.
This news led to McMahon and Laurinaitis stepping back from their official roles for the time being with Stephanie McMahon replacing her father at the helm of the company and Bruce Prichard assuming the duties of John Laurinaitis.
Mike Johnson of PWinsider has now reported that Stephanie McMahon has commented on the investigation into her father during an ‘all hands on deck’ company meeting. Multiple sources say Stephanie McMahon addressed the situation saying she loves both WWE and her father and will be doing all she can for the company moving forward.
The report also says Stephanie McMahon has been attending all meetings that previously would have been attended by Vince McMahon as part of her new role.
