    Vince McMahon steps down; Stephanie McMahon steps up.

    Well, I guess the name on the contract does read McMahon...

    Should we merge this with the other thread about Vince's current goings-on?

    So is this Steph taking over or basically just the same as the steroid trial where someone takes a title to take the pressure off whilst Vince still runs the company. I suspect the latter?

    I suspect is is very much like the steroid trial issue, with Vince knowing that he needs to step away at least temporarily, and also knowing there's a chance the arrangement could be more long term, so he would only trust a family member he can basically use as a proxy. In fact, with Stephanie having recently stepped away for a while to spend more time with her children and then jumping back in, I wouldn't be surprised if some day we hear that Vince was going to try to gut it out and the board were thinking of trying to boot him with the compromise being reached that another McMahon absolutely had to be the person to fill his shoes.

    Vince also choked her out with a lead pipe during that “I Quit” match so there’s added motivation not to mention being kidnapped and almost married to Taker.

    Interesting to listen to Dutch Mantell talk about this story. Dutch Mantell on The Vince McMahon Scandal | Secret Affairs, Hush Money, Stepping Down as WWE CEO - YouTube

    He points out that this paralegal may not have been the source of the leak of this story to the WSJ, as it would violate her NDA. Therefore, he thinks the leak may have come from someone inside. Don't discount the family, but also thinks that Nick Khan could have been involved. Vince has made many enemies over the years.

    Wrestling Twitter is all over the Nick Kahn theory. they're ready for the Rock and Nick to take over.


    Apparently Nick Kahn is like if Tyrion Lannister and Regina George had a child. He can take over anything in the world, and knows the WWE is the biggest prize of them all.

    He's still selling the Stone Cold Stunner from Mania.

    Is it ok to use the word 'coincidental' again? The timeline of events within the last month and a half for WWE has been insane.

    IDK, are you going to use it in the right context or just insinuate something and be too scared to say what you really mean? Kind of like those "Let's Go Brandon" types you like to hang out with around here.

    What are you talking about? I called some things coincidental due to timing and didn't relate them. I said what I meant in the right context, you're just too stupid to understand that.

    We're still waiting for why those 2 items you mentioned a few weeks back were coincidental lol.

    At least here it makes sense unlike you trying to connect Sasha Banks/Naomi's situation with Stephanie McMahon stepping down. There was nothing coincidental about either story. Imagine someone saying It's coincidental the Warriors won the championship the same week Dave Hebner died.

    The Naomi/Sasha ditch and the Steph time off stories were indeed the two and I wasn't connecting them at all, stop pretending like you don't already know this. I stated this back in May.

    I don't think you understand what the word entails, otherwise it wouldn't trigger you so much.
