Ronda Rousey buries ‘questionably ethical’ Vince McMahon in new ‘Our Fight’ memoir — ‘WWE’s Emperor Palpatine’


Vince McMahon recently resigned from TKO Group Holdings and withdrew from all roles pertaining to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in the wake of a sexual assault lawsuit that rocked the pro wrestling community back in January.

Joe Rogan was not shocked.

Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, previously suggested McMahon may still have influence over some of the puppets from the old regime. Now, “Rowdy” is ramping up her McMahon criticism in her new memoir “Our Fight.”

From an except transcribed by Covalent TV:

“NXT was founded by and under the control of Triple H, real name Paul Levesque. In addition to being my in-ring WrestleMania nemesis, he is arguably one of the best professional wrestlers in history and one of the better people on the business side. He is married to Stephanie McMahon, who is the daughter of WWE’s Emperor Palpatine, Vince McMahon. Vince took over the company from his father in the early 1980s and spent the better part of forty years playing a real-world pro-wrestling version of Monopoly, buying up and absorbing smaller promotions until he basically owned them all.

It’s hard sometimes to know where the evil, unethical, slimeball character of Vince McMahon played out for the cameras ends and the actual questionably ethical, many times sued, and multiple times accused of sexual misconduct Vince McMahon begins. That blurred line between character and reality is a recurring theme within the WWE Universe.

[Pay-per-views are] held in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, as well as now twice a year in Saudi Arabia, a nation that restricts the rights of women in a way that I’m certain Vince McMahon wishes he could.”

Rousey made her WWE debut back in early 2018.

WWE recently merged with UFC under the TKO banner, led by Ari Emanuel. The world’s largest pro wrestling organization also came to terms on a new streaming deal with Netflix, worth a reported $5 billion. In the wake of the McMahon scandal, Emanuel is expected to “ferociously eradicate” anyone (or anything) that jeopardizes his business interests.

Let’s hope that doesn’t include Rousey.
