WWE CEO Vince McMahon ‘undergoes major four-hour spinal surgery’: Wrestling chief recovers at home
WWE CEO Vince McMahon underwent spinal surgery last week, according to a report.
The 77-year-old allegedly underwent a procedure to fix a spinal problem that lasted more than four hours, according to TMZ.
The operation was reportedly a success and the fight boss is now recuperating at home.
McMahon resigned as CEO and chairman of the company last year after being accused of sexual misconduct.
But the 77-year-old returned to WWE in January as executive chairman to oversee their sale to UFC parent company Endeavor in April.
He quit after sexual misconduct allegations were made against him, but he would still make “significant changes” to WWE broadcasts from afar.
Allegations against him included raping a female referee, which he has always denied, and paying other female employees to cover up business, but he insisted he was stepping down from the business. that he had created because of his age.
McMahon insisted he wouldn’t be “in the weeds” when it came to making creative decisions moving forward.
However, he was backstage at WrestleMania 39 in early April and then made some major changes to the first RAW after WWE’s showpiece event.
