The Vince McMahon Scandal Thread

Post by Dr. Zoidberg »

Let's get this stuff out of the main WWE thread from now on. John Laurinaitis and friends can go in here too.

Ashley's statement about McMahon
During my time with the WWE, I had observed Vince McMahon making-out with other divas in the locker room, but he never paid attention to me, and I assumed I was not his type. This changed after my Playboy cover was released. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to fly on the company jet and stay at the same hotels as the executives for a period of time so that I could get home faster to spend more time with my daughter.

On one of these occasions, Vince was attempting to get me alone with him in his hotel room late at night and I felt extraordinarily uncomfortable. He began calling the hotel room phone and my cell phone nonstop. I called Kevin Dunn to explain the situation and he said I should tell Vince I was not feeling well and would see him on TV the next day, so I did. Immediately after that night, Vince started writing my promos for me. Vince does not write promos for female wrestlers—that is the job of the creative department—and he certainly wouldn’t have, under any normal circumstances, written a promo for me.

But he did, and the promos were written with the clear intention of ruining my career. I brought the first script Vince wrote for me to the WWE employee in charge of Creative at the time, Michael Hayes, and he said, ‘you’re not saying this, who the [expletive] wrote this?’ and I told him that Vince did.

He said, ‘Well kid, these are the breaks,’ meaning that Vince wanted to end my career and destroy my reputation on my way out. He is known for this type of behavior and also did this to [REDACTED] upon her departure from WWE. In addition, after that night, each time I walk by him he would make vulgar sexual comments that were clearly designed to make me uncomfortable.”

I was thinking, would all this about Vince had gotten out if Jerry McDevitt was still around ?

He was around when the investigation started and Vince left the first time. He retired in January.

Ok thanks. If I'm correct the Janel Grant lawsuit details came out in January, so I assume McDevitt retired either just before, or around that time.

I should've clarified, I meant the lawsuit details being made public, as it was only when the investigations came out did we start hearing about NDA's & hush money payouts.

As when Jerry McDevitt represented Vince in the past he essentially protected him, so not that much if anything regarding misconduct etc was made public knowledge & any lawsuit(s) seemed to fall apart.

He hadn't taken on new cases for them in the last year. He didn't do the Vince stuff or the MLW lawsuit.

Vince sold the last of his TKO stock so he officially has zero connection to WWE.
