In June 2022 CNBC reported that WWE is investigating on $3 million settlement for a departing WWE employee, with whom he allegedly had an affair. In July 2022 it was reported that Vince Docuseries will no longer be a part of Netflix slate.

Bill Simmons recently on his The Bill Simmons podcast talked about Vince’s docuseries

“Vince hasn’t really spoken publicly about all the allegation and the NDAs that he signed, and all that stuff, we haven’t heard him talk about it. He can say, ‘I took a break.’ We probably won’t (hear him talk about it). That’s why I feel like he’s coming back to sell it and then he’s out. He probably just wants to cash in. I think it really probably did bother him though that things were going so well without him. Think about that, he’s had this thing…I’m working on this massive docuseries right now about him, which is, obviously that keeps evolving. This guy has been doing this since 1976. This is his. This was a local promotion that he blew up into a whole thing. I think he honestly kind of lost it, that it was doing well without him. You have something for five decades and then, ‘Oh, it’s gonna fall apart now.’ No, actually, it’s not gonna fall apart. It’s doing better.” (H/T: Fightful)
