VINCE MCMAHON allegedly paid $12million to four women after allegations of sexual misconduct and infidelity, according to reports.

The WWE chief, 76, last month stepped down from the organization after an investigation was opened into whether he paid off a female employee to keep their affair a secret.

McMahon delivered a defiant message in his character as WWE boss live on Smackdown amid the investigation.

While daughter Stephanie McMahon replaced him pending the outcome of the probe.

But reports in the Wall Street Journal suggest that the allegations are more far-reaching than previously revealed.

The WSJ alleges that McMahon agreed to pay upwards of $12m over the past 16 years to four women.

All the women involved are alleged to be formerly affiliated with the WWE.

The WSJ reveals previously unreported settlements which include a $7.5m payment to a former wrestler.

The unnamed woman claims McMahon demoted her and declined to renew her contract in 2005 after she resisted continuing a sexual relationship with him.

It is alleged the woman and her attorneys negotiated the settlement with McMahon in 2018.


WWE kingpin Vince gave a cryptic message in his ring persona Mr McMahon on SmackDown on June 17, addressing WWE fans directly.

He said: “It is a privilege as always to stand before you tonight – the WWE universe.

“It’s especially a privilege to stand here in this ring in Minnesota.

“I’m here simply to remind you of the four words we just saw, the WWE signature – then, now, forever, together.”

Since the initial allegations, McMahon has been giving public appearances and was spotted cage-side at UFC 276 in Vegas on Saturday.

An attorney for McMahon did not respond to the Wall Street Journal’s requests for comment.
