Ronda Rousey On Ari Emmanuel: “He’s Gotta Clean Out All Of Vince’s Cronies”

Former WWE star Ronda Rousey recently spoke with The Diary of a CEO on a number of topics including how Vince McMahon was still running the company through people he previously hired even though he has resigned, but she believes McMahon is still running things.

Rousey said, “I mean supposedly, he’s out now because they paying company funds so he could shit on some girl’s head in the office and do a threesome with her and Johnny Laurinaitis. But his cronies are still there. So when that stuff started coming out and Vince was gone before, he was still basically calling it in and running the company. But Bruce Prichard, who’s there now, who’s like the head of creative or whatever title they gave him, is basically just taking orders from Vince and still running the company through him. So when Vince resigned formally because of all these sexual allegations and stuff that was coming out, he was still running the company informally, and I think he still is to this day.”

On how Endeavor CEO Ari Emmanuel needs to rid WWE of all of McMahon’s old cronies:

“Steph and Triple H, I think they’re honestly doing their best. But I mean, I think that Vince McMahon just created a fundamentally sick environment, and I think if Ari Emanuel is gonna be able to actually make this multi-billion dollar dysfunctional organization into one that functions, he’s gotta clean out all of Vince’s cronies. He’s gotta completely clean house and remove Vince’s influence completely. No one’s asking me, but that’s just what I experienced when Vince was gone. He was still running the show through people that he’d hired in the past, Bruce Prichard being number one of them. Bruce Prichard, literally I never heard him say a single one of his own opinions. He’d only say, ‘Vince says this, Vince says that. Vince, Vince, Vince.’ So he’s literally just, I called him Vince’s avatar. That’s basically what he is.”
