Former WWE staffer Dawn Pappas recently shared her experience with Vince McMahon almost two decades ago.
Former CEO Vince McMahon was accused of misconduct towards former female employees and resigned from the company in July last year. The 77-year-old recently returned as the promotion prepares for a media rights deal and a possible sale of the company.
Speaking of Chosen Life Podcast, former WWE PR Rep Dawn Pappas shared her experience with Vince McMahon in 2004.
“Vince [McMahon] is probably what you think Vince is like. That’s not fair, he’s not [the Vince McMahon character]. He’s very calculating, he’s very smart, he’s very direct,” said Dawn Pappas.
She noted that Mr. McMahon doesn’t pay much attention to the outside world and isn’t surprised he can’t sit on the sidelines for long.
“Vince is going to do what Vince is going to do and he doesn’t want to know, think or see anything else that’s going on out there. That was the impression I got. to hear Hunter [Triple H] did a great job with the company, love this because i love him, he’s a super smart guy. I liked him and have great respect for him. I’m not surprised Vince can’t sit down. It’s his life and blood.” [H/T Fightful]

Dawn Pappas on Vince McMahon not seeing MMA as a threat to WWE
Former WWE staffer Dawn Pappas suggested that Vince McMahon failed in professional wrestling because he didn’t realize that MMA could become a threat at the time.
She told that Chosen Life Podcast that she wished the former CEO had taken MMA seriously and looked at some of her events.
“I think, and it’s just me talking, he failed at wrestling because he didn’t take the threat of MMA seriously,” said Dawn Pappas. “When I went to WWE and started seeing the numbers drop, ‘oh, we’re losing our viewership.’ OK, what do we do about it? My first thought was that we should all go to Vegas and an MMA event and see what they’re doing and compare it to what we’re doing. [H/T Fightful]
Reports of who could buy the company are already circulating. With McMahon back as Executive Chairman, it remains to be seen how quickly the sale can go ahead.
