WWE’s Vince McMahon retired from the company with $3 billion and STILL holds voting control

Vince McMahon retired from WWE with $3.4 billion in his pocket – and still holds voting control, despite being paid $14.6 million for sexual assault allegations.

McMahon, 77, still has control of the wrestling giant’s vote and the riches he has made from it have left him a multi-billionaire according to Bloomberg.

Her daughter Stephanie McMahon took her place as chairman and co-CEO, with her husband Paul Levesque – aka former WWE star Triple H – on the board as well.

McMahon was under investigation by the company’s board of directors for $12 million payout deals over the past 16 years to suppress allegations of sexual misconduct and infidelity, previously reported the Wall Street Journal.

WWE has indicated that it may have to publicly restate its finances after learning that an eight-figure amount was paid out to McMahon’s alleged victims.

An old claim that he raped a female referee in his limo has also resurfaced in the wake of the new scandal.

Although he paid $14.6 million in

Despite shelling out $14.6 million in “unrecorded expenses” amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, Vince McMahon is leaving his beloved WWE with plenty in his wallet.

McMahon, who will make the payments, announced his retirement as CEO and chairman last week, about a month after stepping back from those roles due to an investigation into his alleged misconduct.

“It’s time for me to retire,” McMahon wrote on Twitter on July 22. “Thank you, WWE Universe.”

It’s unclear how McMahon’s retirement affects the investigation into his alleged misconduct.

“He loved the craft,” veteran wrestler Ric Flair told YouTube channel CCV Clips. “He made us all what we are.”

Many speculated, according to Bloomberg, that McMahon might stay involved with the business, while others wondered if WWE was for sale.

Many speculated, according to Bloomberg, that McMahon might stay involved with the business, while others wondered if WWE was for sale.

“This is the first time that WWE could be realistically thought to be for sale,” said media analyst Alan Gould of Loop Capital Markets.

Shares in the company held by the McMahon family — which includes Vince’s wife Stephanie and Vince, former Trump administration executive Linda McMahon — are worth a total of $1.9 billion.

He allegedly had an affair with a paralegal and doubled the woman’s salary from $100,000 to $200,000 at first.

After the pair calmed down, he then handed her a $3 million payout, according to the Wall Street Journal.

WWE’s board of directors, largely made up of the McMahon family, is investigating the payouts made by Vince McMahon, and the regulatory filing says it “remains pending.”

As a result of that investigation, a decades-old claim that McMahon raped a woman in his limo in 1992 resurfaced.

Rita Chatterton, now 64, WWE’s first female referee, has come forward to accuse McMahon of raping her in his limo in 1986.

His claim was recently corroborated by former wrestler Leonard Inzitari, who says he saw Chatterton after the alleged attack.

He said he had kept it a secret for decades for fear of being sidelined by McMahon and his family, who control the industry.

Inzitari, who went by the name of wrestler Mario Mancini, told Intelligencer: “I remember it like it was yesterday. She was a wreck. She was shaking. She cried.

McMahon is married to Trump aide Linda McMahon, who served as head of the Small Business Administration during Trump's presidency.

In 1992, Rita Chatterton, now 64, WWE's first female referee, came forward to accuse McMahon of raping her in his limo in 1986. She appeared on Gerald Rivera's TV show.

In 1992, Rita Chatterton, now 64, WWE’s first female referee, came forward to accuse McMahon of raping her in his limo in 1986. She appeared on Gerald Rivera’s TV show.

“He dug himself such a deep hole that I’m sick of it.”

Inzitari said Chatterton told her through tears how McMahon “pulled his penis out”, forced her to perform oral sex on him, and then forced himself “inside” her.

He recalled telling him, “You’re just shutting up, because it’s Vince McMahon. What are you going to do, Vince McMahon’s stooge? You’re going to be kicked out of the wrestling business! “

Chatterton did not go public with his claim for several years, making the allegation on Geraldo Rivera’s TV show in 1992.

McMahon gave her her first major refereeing job in 1975 and then, she claims, offered her a $500,000-a-year contract to referee on screen.

During her interview, Rira said, “At the time, I knew it was a huge amount of money, but I didn’t know what the wrestlers earned.

She told Intelligencer that McMahon told her not to fraternize with any of the wrestlers, warning her, “Keep it clean.” I don’t want to see you messing with one of the wrestlers. You stay professional.

McMahon has not commented on the allegations, suing her and Rivera, alleging they were trying to bring him down and were spurred on by his enemies.

The lawsuit was dropped with neither side winning.
