Dutch Mantell reflects on Vince McMahon

A real cyclone has hit Vince McMahon in the last few days. The WWE boss is undergoing an internal investigation for giving $3 million to a former employee with whom he allegedly had an extramarital affair. Vince has temporarily stepped down as CEO and President of WWE, with Stephanie replacing him on an interim basis.

“I will return from my leave and take on the role of interim president and CEO. I love our company and am thrilled to continue working with our Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan and our Chief Financial & Administrative Officer Frank Riddick.

Of course, I'm looking forward to working with all of you. My door is always open” - said Stephanie. Against all odds, Vince decided to appear in the latest episode of SmackDown. McMahon opened the show by repeating the famous WWE slogan, then dropping the microphone and walking away.

Speaking to Sportskeeda, former WWE manager Dutch Mantell analyzed that very short segment.

“I think - through that fleeting appearance on SmackDown - Vince McMahon has hinted that he wants to fight and that he won't step aside that easily.

He will do everything possible to stay in the saddle” - stated Dutch Mantell. Dutch then went into detail: “Your resignation as WWE CEO? He couldn't do otherwise. In this moment of storm, he must necessarily get away to calm the waters.

It is a well thought out move”. In the latest edition of his show, Pat McAfee talked about this scandal: “I have no idea what happened. I go in, do my thing, greet everyone and leave. I'm not part of any group, I don't have a dressing room to go to.

What has emerged is not at all beautiful, indeed it is terrible. There will be a long investigation to verify the facts. Will we ever have the truth? I highly doubt it. Nobody knows how this story will turn out. I learned the news like everyone else, so I have no further information about it”.

On the podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer recalled his chat with Vince McMahon. He described how the WWE Chairman told him he could keep using the suplexes because he was safe with them. "Well, not for me in particular, because Vince McMahon pulled me aside and told me, 'Listen, I know that 90% of your repertoire is suplexes, and I want you to keep them because I know you're safe with them," said Kurt Angle.
