WWE board investigating multi million dollar settlement, Miz & Mrs. viewership, and long time ref retires

Jun 15, 2022 - by Steve Gerweck

The Wall Street Journal reports that WWE’s board is investigating a secret $3 million settlement that longtime CEO Vince McMahon reached with a former employee with whom he allegedly had an affair.

– Viewership for Miz & Mrs. …

– After nearly twenty three years, legendary referee Brian Hebner is officially retiring from being a full-time referee.

The IMPACT Wrestling legend made the announcement on the latest episode of his podcast, Refin’ It Up with Brian Hebner, after teasing a big announcement for weeks.

“I am announcing that I am going to retire from professional wrestling as a full time referee. I will no longer be under contract for anybody, I will be working for myself. This is a move that I’m making because of the fact that, there’s a lot of different reasons. I’m not bitter towards the business at all, this has nothing to do with anybody making me mad or anybody making me angry. This is a move I’m making that’s personal. I’m healthy, I’m in great shape, I’m not beat up. I have a lot of life left still with my kids and my family, and my friends. I have other projects that I’m working on, with this podcast being one of them that I’m really trying to dig into. Some people may think it’s something that I shouldn’t take seriously, some people think it should be, but it doesn’t make a fuck what people think today. What it means to me is this, I’m doing what Brian Hebner wants to do on his own terms.”

    At some companies today that kind of settlement could get an executive fired. But considering it’s WWE and Vince, I doubt anything will come out of it. Linda can’t be happy with this!

    @April
    Linda has known about things like this for decades. And this isn’t the first time Vince has been involved in something like this.

    Well, he isn’t called the geriatric jackhammer for nothing.

    I think it’s a bigger issue now since it seems as though the McMahons are slowly giving up/losing power to Nick Kahn.
