Ex-WWE Star Says Company Will Only Improve Without Vince McMahon

Vince McMahon WWE

The only way is up for WWE with Vince McMahon out of the way.

Although he had already been forced to take a step back from WWE thanks to a series of sexual misconduct allegations, Vince McMahon was essentially removed for good on January 26th.

The resignation came shortly after Janel Grant filed a lawsuit against WWE, Vince McMahon, and John Laurinaitis containing allegations of sex trafficking and sexual assault. When news of the lawsuit exploded, it also shone a light back on earlier allegations made against McMahon.

As the lawsuit rumbles on, McMahon is also under a federal investigation.

Ronda Rousey Happy To See The Back Of Vince McMahon

During a new interview with CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri, former WWE star Ronda Rousey was asked about her confidence in the new regime led by Triple H.

“I think anyone’s better than Vince McMahon. The only place you can go is up. I really enjoy Triple H and working with him, and honestly, I haven’t been watching, but I saw something from Natty [Neidhart] saying that they had a card recently that had just as many women on it as the men.

That’s what I would really like to see, the women equally represented with not just matches on the card, but time on the show. I feel there’s no place they could go but up and I’m really, really happy for all the women still there and thriving under the new regime.”

Back in March is reported that Ronda Rousey “despised” Vince McMahon by the time she left WWE.

The former UFC was also incredibly critical of WWE and the company’s upper management in her autobiography. This included branding John Laurinaitis a “60-year-old former frat boy,” and claiming no one within the company knows what Bruce Prichard contributes.
