• “Vince McMahon is paranoid nervous on TV” – Former WWE Star
With 5 different law firms investigating the Vince McMahon situation and looking to file class-action lawsuits against WWE, Vince continues to appear on WWE programming.
On last week’s SmackDown, Vince talked about how WWE will be “Then, Now, Forever, Together”.
On this week’s RAW, Vince talked about John Cena returning to WWE on next week’s show. While leaving, Vince jumped off the steel ring steps, which has become a meme on social media now.
Former WWE Superstar Ryback, who doesn’t leave even a single opportunity to take a shot at WWE & Vince, tweeted the following about this:
“Look at the amount of changes that have taken place with the 1st week with @WWE.
An innocent company doesn’t make moves like this and there are going to be more with what they will uncover.
@VinceMcMahon is paranoid nervous on TV and wobbly legs are more than being old.”
