"I have pledged my total collaboration to investigate by the special committee, and I will do everything I can to assist the inquiry. I have also pledged to accept the findings and outcome of the investigation, whatever they are,," said McMahon in a statement. "I am committed to working with the independent directors to strengthen our culture and our organization, and it''s extremely important to me that we have a safe and collaborative workplace."
While the company and its board "do not expect to have any additional comments until the investigation is concluded," it said, implying that "WWE and its board of directors take all allegations of misconduct very seriously. The board of directors provided independent legal counsel to assist them in an independent review. A special committee and WWE will work with an independent third-party to conduct a comprehensive review of the company''s compliance program, HR function, and overall culture."
