WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon is being investigated by the Board of members of WWE for his alleged affair with an ex female wrestler in WWE. It is said that McMahon offered the female wrestler a whopping amount of 3 million to keep the affair private. The WWE Universe has termed this as ”Hush money settlement”.
On the latest edition of his own show “The Pat McAfee show, McAfee revealed that he knows nothing more than anybody else and in fact he is more oblivious than the others regarding the scandal. He said that he is focused on his work as a commentator, says hello to everybody and walks out of the building.
“Yesterday, the WWE, I know less than everybody else,” Pat McAfee said. “This is just me, I don’t know sh*t about f*ck. I go in, do my thing, say hello to everybody, I’m out.
McAfee also said that he is a fan of WWE and is grateful to be a part of it. He says that watching the company’s situation as an outsider is like watching the TV Series succession, where the family members are concerned about the company’s financial situation and attempt to acquire the company from their ailing father.
“I’m in, maybe the most awesome situation in the history of WWE for anybody. I’m a lifelong fan of the company, but I’m not part of anything. I literally bounce around, do my thing, and I’m out. It’s designed to be that way. Outside looking in, it’s like, after watching Succession, anytime a board is trying to do something, it’s hard not to be like, woah. I’m going there tomorrow. I’m excited to hear the chatter. Obviously, what is being alleged is not fantastic at all, it’s terrible.”
