WWE hasn’t had an easy few weeks in the PR department. All Elite Wrestling’s inaugural show was met with almost universal praise, poor TV ratings, and Jon Moxley, fka WWE’s Dean Ambrose, seemed to confirm the backstage problems with creative fans have long suspected.

And according to a new report, Vince McMahon is aware of the real problems as well.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer says he had reached to multiple wrestlers in WWE about the interview, all of whom largely confirmed what Moxley said. Even wrestlers who reportedly disliked Moxley stood by his statements about WWE’s creative and access to Vince.

“In contacting a number of wrestlers, and of course what Moxley said is true and it’s hardly a secret, other than some of the new details of what he went through, even those who personally didn’t like him had nothing negative to say about what he said,” Meltzer says. “It’s pretty much acknowledged that it’s all true and we haven’t seen or heard from one person disputing that.”

However, one of the wrestlers Meltzer reportedly talked to took it a step further, saying Vince is aware of the problems with creative.

“One person who was not close to him at all and felt he was a guy who couldn’t be happy said they listened to him on the Jericho podcast and felt he was very honest from this perspective, that the system in place is obviously broken and that’s not a secret nor is there any doubt about it, and that even Vince McMahon realizes that,” Meltzer continued.

While this is still just a report, it only adds to the growing list of problems that seem to be circling Vince and WWE these days.
