The last few days have not been easy for WWE, as it is in a real storm. Vince McMahon is undergoing an internal investigation for paying a large sum of money ($ 3 million) to a former employee with whom he allegedly had an extramarital affair.
McMahon blew everyone away with his appearance in the latest episode of SmackDown. Vince limited himself to greeting the WWE Universe and repeating the company's famous slogan, then dropping the microphone and walking away from the ring.
In the last few hours, many have tried to explain the reasons for his sensational gesture. According to reports from the journalists of the well-known 'Fightful' portal, Vince McMahon would have sent a sort of hidden message through that short promo.
"He has decided to appear on SmackDown to show that he has no intention of backing down and that he will do everything possible to stay in the saddle" - he reads. In the latest edition of 'Busted Open Radio', Mark Henry expressed his opinion on this delicate subject.
Mark Henry reflects on Vince McMahon
“Vince McMahon's case has transcended wrestling, everyone's talking about it. It is not just about our business, having spread like wildfire to every corner of the planet.
It is on everyone's lips now, if you know what I mean. I associate two possible reasons for Vince's choice to appear on SmackDown: the desire to increase the ratings and the desire to send a message to his detractors.
McMahon wanted to show that he is not afraid of anyone and that he will fight this battle with his head held high. I know him all too well,” Mark Henry said. Dutch Mantell echoed: “Vince won't step aside that easily.
His 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”. Stephanie McMahon temporarily replaced her father after he resigned as WWE President and CEO.
All that remains is to wait for further developments. Vince McMahon stated that the red brand has been on the air for nearly three decades, out of which "the greatest WWE Superstar of all time," John Cena, played a crucial role for 20 years.
McMahon thanked fans for making the show the longest-running show in television history. Additionally, he went on to hype The Cenation Leader's return to RAW next week to celebrate his two-decade anniversary with the company. Cena last appeared for the company in September of last year.
