• Old Sexual Assault Allegations Against Vince McMahon Resurface In New York Magazine
Vince McMahon is being investigated for misconduct right now, which is why he has stepped down from his CEO & Chairman position.
His daughter Stephanie McMahon is the Interim CEO & Interim Chairwoman right now.
Back in 1992, WWF’s 1st ever female referee Rita Chatterton accused Vince of sexually assaulting her back in 1986.
Below is what she said on The Geraldo Rivera Show 30 years ago:
“Vince continued to, you know, ‘If you want a half-a-million-dollar contract, you’re going to have to satisfy me, and this is the way things have to go.
Vince grabbed my hand, kept trying to put my hand on him. I was scared. At the end, my wrist was all purple, black and blue. Things just didn’t…He just…God, he just didn’t stop. This man just didn’t stop.
I was forced into oral $ex with Vince McMahon. When I couldn’t complete his desires, he got really angry, started ripping off my jeans, pulled me on top of him, and told me again that, if I wanted a half-a-million-dollar-a-year contract, that I had to satisfy him.
He could make me or break me, and if I didn’t satisfy him, I was black-balled, that was it, I was done.”
These old allegations have now resurfaced in a new article in the New York Magazine – Intelligencer.
Abraham Riesman, the writer of the article in the Magazine, spoke with former WWF wrestler Mario Mancini (real name: Leonard Inzitari) and gave the following information:
According to Inzitari, in that summer of 1986, he found Chatterton standing alone near the wrestling ring a few hours before a WWF show. “She looks at me and bursts out in tears,” Inzitari recalls. “And she grabbed me, and I go, ‘Rita, what happened?’”
Chatterton began to reply: “I was in Vince’s limo …”
Before she could continue, Inzitari let out an involuntary, “Oh, no.”
“Lenny, he took his penis out,” he said Chatterton told him between sobs. “He kinda forced my head down there, and I made it known I wasn’t interested in doing that.”
Inzitari was not surprised. He had “heard a lot of different stories” about McMahon’s sexual proclivities. “He was strange, brother.” (McMahon did not respond to a request for comment made through WWE and his personal lawyer, Jerry McDevitt.)
Inzitari asked Chatterton what happened next.
“Then, [Vince] pulled me on top of him,” she told her friend. According to her, she was wearing jeans that McMahon forcibly took off. Soon, as Inzitari puts it, “He was inside her.”
“You’re done,” Inzitari remembers telling Chatterton. “Your time’s numbered. You’re not gonna be here.”
