Vince McMahon has been the subject of countless criticisms during his very long career at the top of the WWE. Negative reviews have intensified in the recent period as the company has been forced to release a large number of talent and insiders behind the scenes.
The massive damage created by the pandemic has forced management to cut staff, including prominent company names in the layoffs. Just think of champions of the caliber of Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Mickie James, up to Bray Wyatt.
The removal of the latter has given rise to a real media war, with the most authoritative experts who have expressed their opinion on the matter. If on the one hand there was great friction with the leaders of the WWE, there was no shortage of those who defended their choices.
Among these it is impossible not to mention Sasha Banks, who has always had a very close bond with Vince McMahon. The former SmackDown champion also reiterated this in a recent interview in Rasslin. "My plan for the second half of the year is to become a billionaire, that's all I want.
I'd also like to go to Mars and start a new federation up there. I would bring a lot of people to work there. As soon as I am a billionaire and I become CEO of WWE, we will all go to Mars," joked Sasha. As mentioned, Banks has a gigantic estimate for Vince McMahon.
"He trusts me, we are best friends. I love Vince. We message each other every single morning, he asks me how I am and I care about his health, we have a fantastic relationship. Whatever Vince wishes, I'll try to please him.
I have always tried to make the most of all the opportunities he has given me over the years," she explained. The Boss recently attacked reigning SmackDown champion Bianca Belair by organizing a rematch between the two at SummerSlam (scheduled in Las Vegas on August 21).
Will Brock Lesnar fight in AEW?
In recent days, AEW, also named All Elite Wrestling, has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan.
In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world would also be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of the WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling would tell them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed the AEW. During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast. Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW.
They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me. I also spoke to Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling."
Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36. Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet.
I know WWE wants him and honestly if I'm WWE I think: How do you let go. one like him. I think it would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell.
Usually when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
