Vince McMahon To Leave WWE Amid Misconduct Allegations
Just yesterday, we reported that Vince McMahon was accused of paying a former WWE paralegal $3 million following an affair with the woman. The paralegal has since left the company and according to an e-mail from her friend, she was scared during her time at WWE as she felt like McMahon and lawyer Jerry McDevitt were trying to make her go away. McDevitt has since denied the accusations, however, the WWE board is currently in the midst of investigating these claims.
As a result of the firestorm surrounding the WWE, Vince McMahon has decided to step down as CEO while the investigation gets underway. Now, the WWE will be led by his daughter Stephani McMahon, who used to be a wrestler within the company.
