WWE CEO Vince McMahon Reportedly Agreed to Pay $12 Million to Cover Up Sexual Misconduct and Infidelity

WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon reportedly agreed to pay more than $12

million to four women over the last 16 years to cover up allegations of infidelity and sexual misconduct,

according to both documents obtained by the Wall Street

Journal and accounts by people familiar with the arrangements.

McMahon reportedly paid $7.5 million in 2018 to an ex-wrestler who alleged that he

coerced her into performing oral sex before demoting her and then declining to

renew her contract in 2005, when she rejected further encounters.

Additionally, a 2006 agreement with a former manager alleged that McMahon

initiated a sexual relationship with her after she’d been with the company for a decade,
