Wrestling kingpin Vince McMahon, chairman of the WWE, is presumed to have died in a fiery limousine explosion on June 11th, 2007. Mr. McMahon had just finished a celebration called “Mr. McMahon Appreciation Night.”
He stepped into his limo which soon exploded in a catastrophic boom seen for miles around in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
No body has been recovered.
The emblazoned limousine was engulfed by flames that reached skyward at estimated heights of more than 50 feet. The sight of the charred debris led to speculation that there was no conceivable way anyone could have escaped from the limo alive. Early assessments from local firefighters and police officers sent a similar feeling regarding the probability of the Chairman’s survival.
This story is clearly a hoax and a fun one to be sure. The WWE has managed to create a terrific entertainment atmosphere under McMahon’s leadership for years. Tonight’s gripping story is just one example of the fun to be found at the WWE. You can be sure that ratings next week will skyrocket as Vince McMahon surfaces in a hospital ward somewhere.
