On the 8/3 AEW Dynamite episode, Max Caster made a reference to Vince McMahon’s retirement before The Acclaimed’s Dumpster Match against The Gunn Club. Caster began his rap by declaring that he was going to leave The Gunn Club in a bad way. We got the fight in the bag due to trash day. No filter, I’m not Instagram, we end up making the Ass Boys withdraw like Vince McMahon.
It was not Caster’s first allusion to the continual McMahon WWE saga. On the 6/17 AEW Rampage show, the outspoken performer would make a mention to McMahon’s accusation secret $3 million settling with an exiting WWE paralegal. Caster said that in his ordinarily pre-match rap in front of a Trios Fight pitting him and The Gunn Club against Leon Ruff and Bear Country, Honestly, I had something to say, but someone made me sign an NDA.
Hollywood Walk of Fame
Caster also flipped the bird to the memorial honouring McMahon’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier in June. Caster’s biggest #MicDrop occurred while AEW was travelling Los Angeles for first time in corporate history for a couple of shows AEW Dynamite & AEW Rampage at the Kia Forum in Inglewood.
Caster appears to have no plans to stop publicly criticising McMahon. And, if reports that a forthcoming HBO Real Sports exposé contains more dirt on McMahon are true, Caster will have plenty of ammunition to go after the former WWE boss. The Acclaimed then defeated The Gunn Club by imprisoning Billy Gunn’s sons in a trash bin. Following the match, Caster and Anthony Bowens would throw the dumpster off the stage, referencing a popular Attitude Era moment involving The New Age Outlaws, Mick Foley, and Terry Funk.
Vince And Linda
Following the accusations, while Vince and Linda remain married, they have indeed been separated for an unspecified period of time. Whereas Vince McMahon has showed up publicly since the investigation started, was reportedly defiant about the investigation backstage at WWE events, and issued several statements following his retirement, as of this writing, there has been no official statement from McMahon addressing the investigation or allegations against him.
Former WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon abruptly resigned after 40 years as the company’s top executive. McMahon’s retirement was not without controversy, as he is currently being investigated for several non-disclosure agreements he supposedly made with former female WWE employe to incidents of sexual misconduct. Over the course of 16 years, more than $12 million in hush money was paid out, according to the investigation.
