Linda McMahon, the former President and CEO of WWE, has finally spoken publicly about the ongoing Vince McMahon allegations – sort of.
The co-founder of Titan Sports has been a person of interest in the ongoing investigation against her husband for allegations of sexual misconduct, given her close ties to the situation. At last, she’s made a comment on the situation – in a way.
During a public appearance for the America First Policy Institute, Linda McMahon was asked to address Vince McMahon’s allegations and retirement, offering up little insight into the developing matter:
“I’m not going to talk about Vince and WWE, I’m here to talk about AFPI. You know what, he’ll just be deciding on how he’s going to spend his free time. I think that’s a good thing.”
Linda McMahon asked about Vince “retiring”.

Vince McMahon announced his retirement last Friday, though it’s since been alleged that the former Chairman and CEO actually resigned from his role. Stephanie McMahon, Nick Khan, and Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque will take over from him.
Linda McMahon, meanwhile, hasn’t been involved with WWE since leaving her role as President and CEO in 2009. Her resignation was announced as she left to run for US Senate. Linda’s political career saw her serve as the 25th Administrator of the Small Business Administration between 2017 and 2019.
On-screen, Linda was a beloved figure, perhaps best remembered for standing out of her wheelchair at WrestleMania X-Seven.
