• “F*ck em!” – Vince McMahon Shouted This After His Recent ‘Pointless’ SmackDown Appearance
After it was announced that Vince McMahon was being investigated in the hush money scandal, he decided to appear on the June 17th episode of SmackDown.
Vince came out to a huge pop from the crowd and said he’s privileged to be here in front of the fans.
He then talked about the “Then, Now, Forever, Together” line in WWE’s TV intro, with “together” being the most important.
He then welcomed the fans to SmackDown, threw the mic and left.

According to Fightful Select, Vince was defiant backstage after making this appearance:
“Upon publishing the story, Fightful was contacted by multiple WWE staff, including some who had remained quiet in the past about McMahon’s handling of the situation.
One told Fightful they wished they’d spoken out sooner, and said that McMahon’s response would often go from ‘no selling the whole thing’ to ‘being defiant’.
They also said that after Vince McMahon’s ‘pointless’ June 17 appearance, he returned to the Gorilla position and shouted ‘F*ck em!’ seemingly in response to the allegations that caused his insistence to appear on television.”
