McMahon

Chairman / CEO

The coronavirus delivered a decisive smackdown to McMahon’s upstart XFL football league, forcing it to cancel the remainder of its games in March. The following month, it suspended operations, laid off its staff and filed for bankruptcy protection. But McMahon was able to sell the league in August to an investment group led by Dwayne Johnson and RedBird Capital. He remains the undisputed king of pro-wrestling promoters, though his WWE empire has been showing widening cracks. Also in March, he sold 15% of his stock in the company, and the price quickly fell from a 52-week high of over $100/share to $36. The battered league continued to stage matches, sans fans, but it was forced to release more than a dozen wrestlers, producers, trainers and other staff.
