There is a lot more to come on Vince McMahon’s decision to retire from WWE.
This was clearly not in his plans because he said back in March on The Pat McAfee Show that he had no plans of stepping away from wrestling anytime soon and privately after the first Wall Street Journal story broke, he had told people that he was not going anywhere and things would continue “business as usual.”
Wade Keller at PWTorchVIP.com reports that friends and colleagues have no idea how Vince will handle no longer running the company because he has no hobbies and no social life outside of visiting his grandkids.
Vince is notorious for working a crazy amount of hours with very little sleep and getting his workouts in late at night and he has been this way at least since the early 80s. Vince has been working in the business in some form since the early 70s before taking over for his father in 1982.
PWTorch adds that some people who know Vince are worried for him and others are just curious to see how he adjusts to being off the road. Keller stated that one wrestler said, “What the f— will he even do with himself? I worry his health will go downhill from this.”
It will be interesting see what else comes out and if more allegations surface because there are more mainstream media outlets working on stories about Vince McMahon. On Friday, there was an allegation made about McMahon allegedly harassing Ashley Massaro. WWE Raw will be at Madison Square Garden this Monday. That is Vince’s favorite building so it says a lot that he did not wait until after Raw to announce his retirement.
