Ronda Rousey Reacts to Vince McMahon's Resignation from WWE Amidst Controversy

Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey has shared her thoughts after Vince McMahon, the iconic figure behind WWE, announced his resignation from the company. McMahon had taken on the role of TKO Group Holding’s Executive Chairman and board member following the company's merger with the UFC.

However, his position came under intense scrutiny following allegations raised in a lawsuit by Janel Grant, accusing McMahon of years of sexual abuse and involvement in sex trafficking. In response to these allegations, WWE president Nick Khan circulated a memo to TKO staff members, confirming McMahon's resignation from both TKO Group Holdings and WWE.

Rousey, who has a history with both UFC and WWE, commented on the news during an appearance on 'X,' suggesting that McMahon's influence may still be felt through Bruce Prichard.

According to Rousey, Prichard serves as McMahon's proxy, implying that as long as Prichard remains involved, McMahon's influence will persist. She stated, “Bruce Prichard is basically Vince’s avatar. If he’s still around, Vince still has a hand in the business. Vince was still running things through Bruce when he was 'gone' before.”

Prichard, known to wrestling fans for his on-screen persona 'Brother Love' in the late 80s, has been a significant figure in WWE for many years. With a history of working for the company from 1987 to 2008 and returning in 2018, Prichard has played a key role in WWE's operations and is seen as closely associated with McMahon's vision for the organization.
