• WWE Hall Of Famer Fires Back At Fans Who Are Celebrating Vince McMahon’s Retirement

Vince McMahon dropped a bombshell today by announcing his retirement from WWE.

Below is his full statement:

“As I approach 77 years old, I feel it’s time for me to retire as Chairman and CEO of WWE.

Throughout the years, it’s been a privilege to help WWE bring you joy, inspire you, thrill you, surprise you, and always entertain you.

I would like to thank my family for mightily contributing to our success, and I would also like to thank all of our past and present Superstars and employees for their dedication and passion for our brand.

Most importantly, I would like to thank our fans for allowing us into your homes every week and being your choice of entertainment. I hold the deepest appreciation and admiration for our generations of fans all over the world who have liked, currently like, and sometimes even love our form of Sports Entertainment.

Our global audience can take comfort in knowing WWE will continue to entertain you with the same fervor, dedication, and passion as always.

I am extremely confident in the continued success of WWE, and I leave our company in the capable hands of an extraordinary group of Superstars, employees, and executives – in particular, both Chairwoman and Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon and Co-CEO Nick Khan.

As the majority shareholder, I will continue to support WWE in any way I can. My personal thanks to our community and business partners, shareholders, and Board of Directors for their guidance and support through the years. Then. Now. Forever. Together.”

Some fans are celebrating the fact that Vince McMahon has retired and is gone from the WWE forever.

This led to WWE Hall Of Famer Gerald Brisco tweeting:

“Disappointed to see all you jabronis celebrating the retirement of the man who created a world that gave you so much enjoyment growing up.

If Vince never existed, all you marks would have sadder lives than you already do.”
