WWE Stock Continues To Drop Following Vince McMahon News, Hits Lowest Numbers of the Year

As you might have heard, Vince McMahon stepped down as the chairman and CEO of WWE, pending an investigation by the board into alleged payments he made to an employee he had an affair with. The stock for the company initially dropped when the announcement was made and has continued to drop steadily since. It has hit some of the company’s lowest stock prices of the year.
