• Fans React To The News Of Vince McMahon’s Affair With Ex-WWE Employee

According to the The Wall Street Journal, WWE’s board is investigating a $3 million “hush-money settlement”, that Vince McMahon paid to a former female WWE employee over an alleged affair between them.

This ex-female employee was hired by WWE in 2019 as a paralegal. The January 2022 separation agreement doesn’t allow this ex-employee to discuss her relationship with Vince or disparage him.

WWE’s board began this investigation in April and a lot of old non-disclosure agreements were opened, which involved claims by multiple ex-WWE female employees of misconduct by Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis (Head of WWE Talent Relations).

WWE’s board’s 8 independent directors hired Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP (New York-based law firm) to conduct the investigation. They found out that Vince used his personal funds to pay this ex-employee.

A WWE Spokesperson said the company is fully cooperating with the board’s inquiry and that Vince’s relationship with the ex-employee was consensual.

Jerry McDevitt (Vince’s attorney) said that the ex-employee didn’t make any claims of harassment against Mr. McMahon and that “WWE did not pay any money” to her “on her departure”.

WWE’s board members learned about this $3 million settlement after they received anonymous emails.

The 1st email they received was on March 30, 2022, where a friend of this ex-WWE paralegal claimed that WWE hired the paralegal at a salary of $100,000 at first, but her salary increased to $200,000 after Vince began a $exual relationship with her.

The email also stated that Vince “gave her like a toy” to Laurinaitis. The email also read:

“My friend was so scared so she quit after Vince McMahon and lawyer Jerry paid her millions of dollars to shut up.”

After the ex-paralegal signed her non-disclosure agreement, she was paid $1 million upfront and the rest $2 million will be paid over a period of 5 years.

The ex-paralegal is 41-years-old and told other employees in WWE that she faced a lot of hard times and needed the extra money, as her career got sidetracked after she tended to a sick parent.

In 2021, she was made an assistant to Laurinaitis.

Here’s how wrestling fans reacted to this on Twitter:

“Cancel Vince McMahon. He is one of the people who truly deserves it.”

“Can you imagine if Vince McMahon went to Jail? Can you imagine this?”

“People who don’t watch wrestling: Wow can you believe this Vince McMahon story???

Literally everyone who’s watched wrestling since 1998: Yes.”

“Let’s be honest, nobody is surprised about that Vince McMahon story. I’m surprised there isn’t MORE stories.”

“There’s no allegation against Vince McMahon that I wouldn’t believe. Even the most ridiculous. He did it all.”

“In case it wasn’t obvious, Vince McMahon is a really, really, really, really bad guy.”

“Vince McMahon is one of those unique people so terrible that whenever something even worse about him comes out absolutely zero people are surprised.”
