    Ya, I get that, but as I said, I couldnt open the link to even know what the actual story was. All I could read was he was stepping down from the title.

    To be honest, I am surprised that he stayed as clean as he did for as long as he did. I don't think anybody is surprised that this happened as he has always treated women poorly.

    The interesting thing I see about it, is the fact that Stephanie is taking over. My first though is, how different is that from Vince NOT stepping down? I wouldn't doubt if he was still calling all of the shots, just through her. Also, wouldn't everyone expect that if something like this was to ever happen, that it would be Triple H who would be taking over? Something doesn't add up here to me.

    It's basically turning into an episode of Succession.

    Triple H had a major health scare/heart issue last year so I believe he's stepped away from the a lot of his previous duties.

    Could be wrong, but I don't think there is an allegation that he used company money for the payoff(s)...

    Umm maybe true? (Can't find a definitive answer)

    But he also doubled her salary - and that is.

    Vince McMahon has now officially retired.

    Never thought I'd see the day.

    For sure. To be honest, like many wrestlers, I wouldn't be surprised if these were just words and he was still very involved moving forward. I get the idea this might be to satisfy the shareholders. How many times has Ric Flair "retired"?

    Retired amidst multiple sexual allegations though. I think this is permanent and even makes me think there is probably more bad stuff coming.

    Holy crap has the wrestling world become significantly more interesting since McMahon stepped down.

    AEW seems to be imploding and WWE has had a TON of returns and surprises. A completely fresh direction with Triple H in charge.
