Top WWE Star calls Vince McMahan “Tone Deaf & Embarrassing” after Smackdown Appearance!

As advertised, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon appeared on the June 17th, 2022 episode of WWE Smackdown in a very bizarre segment. McMahon came down to the ring, where many fans expected him to address the allegations surrounding him at the moment, but instead he opened the show with a speech resighting the WWE Logo Then, Now, Forever before adding Together at the end before welcoming everyone to the show. The small segment was met with a lot of reaction from the fans in attendance.

Fightful Select has heard from several current and former WWE Talent since the segment aired, who gave their thoughts on the promo. One top WWE talent immediately contacted Fightful saying that the segment was “Tone Deaf and Embarrassing”, explaining that they believe this was Vince’s way and putting himself on screen in a sort of power move to try and lessen the impact of the current ongoing investigation surrounding his alleged affair and hush money scandal.

A former WWE Talent stated the following;
 

“I’m happy it didn’t last long, so I didn’t have to sit through whatever bullshit he was going to say. But it shows that he has no accountability, especially when something is directly his fault.”

 
Then a person who has worked directly with the Chairman of the Board, who was sourced as backstage at Smackdown, said that they were “Enraged” by the appearance and that they were “Incredulous” as they watched it unfold. Others have suggested that the segment was originally planned differently but was changed in the morning before Smackdown. It was reported that Vince McMahon appeared to be in a positive mood backstage at Smackdown and was not directly acknowledging the investigation. Some sources used the term “Business as Usual” in regards to Vince’s demeanour as no one knew exactly what he was going to say once out in front of the cameras.
