Last week, The Wall Street Journal published another report with a fresh round of damaging allegations aimed at WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. After it was revealed that he allegedly paid a former WWE employee to keep a sexual relationship secret, it's now said that he did the same with three other women as well, forking out upwards of $16 million over the past sixteen years.
Worryingly, among the allegations is a claim from a former WWE Superstar that she was coerced into performing oral sex on McMahon. However, when she refused to participate in any additional sexual encounters, this unnamed wrestler was reportedly demoted and ultimately released.
She negotiated a $7.5 million settlement with McMahon in 2018 at the height of the #MeToo era.
That's really the tip of the iceberg, and The Wall Street Journal's reporters have already said they're continuing their investigations into McMahon, so more may be coming. In the meantime, he continues to be investigated by WWE's board of directors, and it's now said that Netflix has pulled the plug on a big-budget documentary about the billionaire.
This isn't overly surprising, and we'd guess that the feature film that's been talked about will probably join it. Things don't look too good for Vince at the moment, though he continues to head up WWE's creative team behind the scenes and is supposedly no-selling all of this.
Stay tuned for updates.
