Vince McMahon was involved in a car accident on Tuesday that left his luxury vehicle damaged, but fortunately no one was injured.
According to TMZ, McMahon was driving his black Bentley about a mile from WWE headquarters in Stamford, Conn. when he got into an accident with another driver. His car was reportedly banged up, but the accident was described as “minor.
Naturally, many WWE fans were quick to point out that a minor fender-bender in an expensive car is nothing for a guy who once survived a limousine explosion.

If you want to know if the accident scared McMahon, just read what UFC president Dana White said about the WWE boss. Mr. McMahon probably made it to work on time and didn’t mention it.

Legendary WWE announcer Jim Ross revealed on Tuesday that his wife has been hospitalized after being involved in a serious scooter accident.
Ross sent a tweet early Tuesday morning informing fans that his wife Jan suffered multiple skull fractures after being hit while riding her Vespa near the couple’s home in Oklahoma.
My wife Jan, my little angel, was hit while riding her Vespa & has multiple skull fractures. She's in surgery now. We need a miracle.
— Jim Ross (@JRsBBQ) March 21, 2017
Ross told TMZ Jan was not wearing a helmet when she was struck from behind by the driver of a Mercury Grand Marquis. She was thrown from the scooter and struck her head, which resulted in multiple fractures. Both the Vespa and the other vehicle caught fire. Jan underwent surgery at a nearby hospital and was in critical condition, with Jim describing her condition as “touch and go.”
Here’s hoping everything turns out OK for the Ross family.

WWE wrestler Paige is the latest celebrity victim of nude photos being leaked online.
On Friday, nude photos and then sex videos of Paige leaked online. A few hours after the materials started to circulate, Paige issued the following statement on Twitter in which she called the photos “personal and private” and said they were stolen.
Personal and private photos of mine were stolen and unfortunately they were shared publicly without my consent.
— PAIGE (@RealPaigeWWE) March 17, 2017
Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, could choose to pursue legal action as stealing and sharing photos like this is a crime. The man who hacked several celebrities such as Kate Upton and athletes McKayla Maroney and Hope Solo, leading to mass online leak in 2014, was sentenced to 18 months in prison last year for his crimes.
Paige is on hiatus from the WWE as she recovers from surgery. The 24-year-old comes from a wrestling family and a movie is currently being made about her life.
Actresses Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson have also recently been victimized by similar leaks.
WWE wrestler Paige is the latest celebrity figure to have personal photos and videos leak into a public online forum.
Paige, who is currently on hiatus from the WWE, appears to have been the victim of a sex tape leak. A few different videos and photos have leaked online featuring the female wrestler.
Paige, 24, has endured a rough year.
She underwent surgery for a herniated disc and is out of competition. She was suspended for failing drug tests. Paige said the failed drug test was due to a technicality.
There may be some friction between her and the WWE due to her engagement to Alberto del Rio, who had issues with the WWE last year prior to his release.
Paige comes from a family with deep wrestling ties. The Rock is currently teaming with WWE Studios to make a movie about her life, called “Fighting with My Family.”
The nature of the leak is unclear, but there has been a disturbing trend of celebrity photos and sex tapes leaking online. Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson are recently celebrities who became victims of such leaks. A few years ago, Kate Upton was a victim of a major hack that also included athletes Hope Solo and McKayla Maroney.
MMA fighter Derrick Lewis is the kind of guy who wants to kick your rear and then take your girl. And he said just as much on Sunday night.
Lewis defeated Travis Browne by second-round knockout at “UFC Fight Night” in Nova Scotia on Sunday night. After his win, he was interviewed by FS1 and proceeded to talk about how he needed to relieve himself. He also referenced Browne’s domestic violence allegations, as well as Browne’s girlfriend, Ronda Rousey.

“I just knew I had a bigger heart than him. He calls himself a man, but he likes to put his hands on women, so forget that guy,” said Lewis. “I have much more heart than his a–. Where Ronda Rousey’s fine a– at?”
Lewis is up to 18-4 and has won six in a row. He’s also registered 8 career UFC heavyweight knockouts, which is tied for the third-most all-time. Browne has lost three in a row and is now 18-6-1.
As for the domestic violence allegations, those came from Browne’s ex-wife.
Is Brock Lesnar done fighting in the octagon?
Reports on Tuesday said that Lesnar informed the UFC that he is retiring from MMA. MMA Fighting first reported the news, and other outlets later confirmed it.
Lesnar, 38, fought Mark Hunt in a one-off fight last year after nearly a five-year absence from competition. He won the fight but it was overturned into a no-contest after Lesnar tested positive for PEDs twice.
Lesnar was fined and suspended a year by the Nevada State Athletic Commission as a result of his positive tests.
These reports come as no surprise given that we shared last week that Lesnar’s name had been removed from the UFC’s fighter roster online.
Lesnar remains a huge attraction and is getting prepared for his match against Goldberg at WrestleMania in April. Given his popularity and draw as a fighter, don’t be surprised if Lesnar fights at some point in the future.

Brock Lesnar was reportedly removed from the UFC’s active roster as part of a roster purge on Friday.
A Twitter account called UFC Fighters Info runs a webscript that produces notifications when UFC.com deletes fighters from its roster. Over 40 fighters were marked as deleted Friday. These can be fighters whose contract with the UFC expired, or ones who retired or are no longer competing for the organization for another reason.
The biggest name included in the roster purge is Lesnar, who was one of the company’s biggest stars.
Lesnar, 39, first joined the UFC in 2008 and fought Frank Mir, losing via first-round submission. He bounced back and won two in a row, including a second-round TKO of Randy Couture to become the UFC heavyweight champion. Lesnar successfully defended his title twice in a row before losing consecutive fights, leading him to step away from MMA.
After a four and a half year absence from MMA, Lesnar made a surprising return to the octagon in July to face Mark Hunt. Lesnar did not have to go through all the drug testing that is typical for a fighter to get cleared to re-join the UFC. He ended up testing positive for PEDs before and on the day of the fight.
Lesnar is currently serving a one-year suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission stemming from his positive drug tests. The suspension is set to end in July.
In addition to Lesnar, Tim Kennedy is another notable fighter who was removed from the roster. Kennedy announced his retirement last month.
