• BREAKING NEWS: Vince McMahon Announces Retirement

It is the end of an era. After running the WWF/WWE for 40 years, Vince McMahon has announced his retirement.

Below is what he tweeted today:

“At 77, time for me to retire.

Thank you, WWE Universe.

Then. Now. Forever. Together. #WWE #thankful”

It’s safe to say that Vince’s retirement is due to the hush money scandal that is being investigated right now.

He recently stepped down from his CEO & Chairman position, with his daughter Stephanie McMahon stepping in as the Interim CEO & Interim Chairwoman.

Earlier today, WWE announced that Triple H is back in his old position of EVP, Talent Relations.
