McMahon's Millions Dumped After "Accident" on RAW

From: PWPIX.net

Reportedly, WWE officials were looking to figure out a way to write out Vince McMahon's "Million Dollar Mania" contest because they obviously weren't going to be giving away a million dollars every single week for too long. It looks like they figured something out.

Following tonight's "tragic accident" involving Vince McMahon at the conclusion of Raw, WWE.com immediately announced on the front page of the site that the Million Dollar contest was being "suspended for the foreseeable future." Here is their article regarding the situation.

SAN ANTONIO – Moments after giving away $500,000 in "McMahon's Million Dollar Mania," the WWE Chairman appeared to be severly injured in a bizarre accident when lighting equipment crashed onto the stage and a large electric sign toppled onto him at the AT&T Center.

The extent of any injuries were not known at press time, however, the WWE Chairman was immediately treated at the scene by paramedics who loaded him onto a stretcher and rushed him to a local medical facility.

WWE officials said that they are conducting a preliminary investigation into the equipment failure. Officials also said that any emerging facts, as well as Mr. McMahon’s medical condition, will be updated at the WrestleMania XXV press conference on Tuesday at 1 p.m. in Houston. The press conference will be streaming live on WWE.com.

WWE.com will continue to publish up-to-the-minute details as they become available.
