Vince McMahon is in the news for all the wrong reasons but despite that WWE is selling a t-shirt featuring McMahon at its Royal Rumble superstore.
Vince McMahon is at the centre of a horrifying lawsuit where a former WWE employee has detailed several allegations of sickening behaviour including serious sexual assault and sex trafficking against McMahon.
Vince McMahon has called the lawsuit “replete with lies” through a spokesperson while the TKO Group has indicated the matter is being handled internally.

The news of the lawsuit came just days before the WWE Royal Rumble and the company is already set up and ready to go in Florida with a superstore opened up for fans to buy their merch ahead of the big event. PWInsider has posted on social media that one of the items for sale is a t-shirt featuring the likeness of Vince McMahon celebrating his victory in the 1999 Rumble match.
WWE has told its stars to keep quiet about the lawsuit and to focus only on the Royal Rumble and ongoing company storylines publicly.
UPDATE – 26TH JANUARY – 10:43 AM EST
Mike Johnson of PWInsider has now reported that the t-shirt is no longer for sale at the superstore but remains online WWE Shop. How much longer the shirt remains there is yet to be seen.
