Some people believe that the injury was because of a neck injury McMahon had back in the 1990s. The WWE Executive Chairman apparently had hip problems as well, and he didn’t get a hip replacement because it would mean giving up big squats. When Mick Foley had his hips replaced several years ago, McMahon encouraged him not to do it because of the squat issue.
According to Wrestling Inc., Vince McMahon’s recent spine surgery lasted four to five hours and was called “life-altering.” He has been going through a hectic year. Mr. McMahon officially rejoined WWE in January after initially leaving the company in July 2022 due to allegations of a hush money scandal.
