Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but new trouble could be bad for Vince McMahon.

It was only about a year ago where McMahon was on the outs from his own company, disgraced by a series of accusations and evidence of hush money payments.

As things piled up over the summer of 2022, the chairman was effectively pushed out.

First he was put on leave, but ultimately his actions and their resulting bad press led to a forced retirement in a very quiet fashion.

Fans rejoiced, Triple H was elevated and the on-air and in-ring product has been vastly improved.

And yet…McMahon couldn’t stay gone.

Vince forced his way back into his company, ostensibly to shepherd a sale.

The deal with Endeavor was brokered early in 2023, with the merger becoming official only recently.

The boss got paid, he got back into his company, life is good, right?

Maybe not.

Not every Vince related issue was resolved with the hush money investigation, which makes the close of the deal maybe a little peculiar.

Especially considering that McMahon was very recently (in July) subject to further investigation, including a visit from law enforcement to collect additional evidence.

Meaning…things are not done with just yet. And, according to some, the most painful stuff could be on the horizon.

There remains a federal investigation into what Vince McMahon did, and with what funds, and how he reported that.

If found guilty, it could be his final downfall.

As in, any potential criminal or civil findings could render him unable to serve as an officer of a publicly traded company.

Which is what he currently is as part of TKO, following the Endeavor/WWE deal.

Would be a bit ironic in a way.

Fans were not upset when the boss left his company in disgrace.

They were upset at his coup to restore himself to power.

And the events that started it all may lead to his ultimate banishment.

Clearly this was thought of by the legal minds involved with the process, given certain protective language in his new contract
