An ex-WWE Superstar has claimed that Vince McMahon and his wife Linda McMahon have been apart for “decades.”
Following the news that Vince McMahon was under investigation by WWE’s Board of Directors, a note from Dave Meltzer set tongues wagging even further.
While discussing the situation on Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer commented that while the couple are still married, they haven’t been together for a “long, long time.”
While it has been publicly acknowledged that Vince McMahon has engaged in sexual extra-marital affairs in the past, there has been no real news on his marriage in recent years. Although, during an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show earlier in 2022, McMahon referred to Linda as “my wife at time,” before quickly attempting to correct himself.
Adding further fuel to the fire, former WWE Superstar Rene Dupree explained that he has been told something similar. Speaking on his Cafe de Rene podcast, the former Tag Team Champion claimed that he’s heard the pair hadn’t been living together for decades.
“I heard that Vince and Linda are still legally married but they haven’t lived together in decades.”
Early on June 17th it was announced that Vince McMahon had stepped back from his role as WWE CEO and Chairman of the Board with immediate effect.
Furthermore, McMahon has been replaced on an interim basis by his daughter Stephanie McMahon. However, Vince will retain his responsibilities related to WWE’s creative content.
The news came after it emerged 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 has been announced that McMahon will be appearing on the upcoming episode of Friday Night SmackDown. The billionaire hasn’t appeared on WWE television since WrestleMania 38.
