Vince McMahon allegations: WWE’s future hinges on response

Vince McMahon sustained another damaging blow last week as he tries desperately to maintain control of WWE.

On Friday, the The Wall Street Journal reported that McMahon paid $12 million to four women over the past 16 years to silence “allegations of sexual misconduct and infidelity.” One of the nondisclosure deals involved McMahon and a former wrestler, where, according to the Journal, he “coerced her into giving him oral sex and then demoted her and ultimately declined to renew her contract after she resisted further sexual encounters.” This comes after a June 15 Journal report that McMahon paid $3 million in hush money to a woman with whom he allegedly had an affair. There is no excuse for the hideous nature of the alleged behavior, and there is a disturbing pattern with regard to the NDAs, where McMahon has repeatedly, it’s been reported, used money to cover up misconduct.
