• Update On Vince McMahon & Linda McMahon’s Marriage
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 (tap here for more information).
Some fans are wondering if Linda McMahon will publicly comment on this matter, while some fans think Linda doesn’t care.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince & Linda haven’t been together in years:
“Technically, they’re married. But they haven’t been together in a long, long time though.”
Vince (age 76) and Linda (age 73) got married 56 years ago.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 16, 1996) – WCW The Great American Bash 1996
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 16, 1996, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1996’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 10th edition of WCW’s annual The Great American Bash events, although the 1986 & 1987 Great American Bash events were actually tours of several shows with the best matches making it to the VHS’, that made them being presented like 1 big event in both years, even though they weren’t.
There was no Great American Bash in 1993 & 1994, but after WCW was sold to the World Wrestling Federation in 2001, Vince McMahon brought the pay-per-view back in 2004 under the WWE banner.
The results from that night:
The Steiner Brothers defeated Fire and Ice
WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Konnan (c) defeated El Gato
