Vince McMahon Reportedly Considering WWE Return!
According to a story in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, Vince McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment who retired from the firm last year, is planning a comeback.
A scandal involving hush money and sexual harassment led Vince McMahon to leave the WWE. As executive chairman of the corporation, he now intends to come back. The media rights for Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown will reportedly be renegotiated. Vince McMahon wants to lead the sales process for those rights.

According to reports, he told the board that he wouldn’t agree to any media rights sale or arrangement unless he were directly involved.
When he was being investigated for bribing several women to remain silent about suspected extramarital affairs last year, Vince McMahon abruptly announced his retirement from WWE on Twitter. The WWE revealed charges totaling $19.6 million, which compelled the business to change its financial records for 2019, 2020, and 2021.
According to reports, Vince McMahon was informed by the WWE board that he would be required to pay back the company’s spending while it would be grateful for his assistance with a prospective review process. Though he refused to agree to leave the corporation, Vince McMahon declared he would keep working to pay back the organization.
Vince McMahon announced his retirement, and the business then declared Stephanie McMahon to be the new CEO and chairperson of the wrestling organization. It was then revealed that Stephanie’s husband, Paul “Triple H” Levesque, would be responsible for the WWE’s original storylines.
Who Is Vince McMahon?
Vincent Kennedy McMahon, the younger son of Victoria and Vincent James McMahon, was born on August 24, 1945, in Pinehurst, North Carolina. McMahon didn’t meet his father until he was 12 years old since his father left the family when he was still a baby and took his older son, Rod, with him.
Promoter Roderick James “Jess” McMahon, whose parents were immigrants of Irish ancestry from County Galway, was Vince McMahon’s paternal grandfather. Rose Davis, his paternal grandmother, was also of Irish origin. Living with his mother and stepfathers for the duration of his youth, Vince McMahon was brought up as Vinnie Lupton.
Leo Lupton, one of McMahon’s stepfathers, allegedly abused his mother and attacked him when he attempted to defend her, according to McMahon. Later, he stated, “It’s too bad he passed away before I could finish him off. That would have been fun for me.” He graduated in 1964 from Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro, Virginia. According to reports, he has dyslexia.
