Former WWE Referee Mike Chioda Details Fallout Between The McMahon Family

December 14, 2021

Mike Chioda worked for WWE and Vince McMahon for a little over thirty years. The tenured ref began working for the company in the late eighties, and was released in April of 2020. With the number of years Chioda put in the company, it is safe to say he has seen his fair share of backstage drama and plenty of situations that WWE probably wouldn’t want to be aired out, However, in a recent interview that just what happened.

During a recent episode of Monday Mailbag, Chioda was asked if he knew whether anybody ever confronted Triple H about dating Stephanie McMahon. The longtime referee stated that Shane McMahon did, noting that Shane and Triple H’s rocky relationship eventually is what led to Shane being gone from the company for a period of time.

Chioda noted that there’s a ‘lot of heat’ behind the scenes.

Yes, Shane did.  Shane McMahon did.  That’s why the feud fell out, that’s for sure.  It was a thing from Vince Sr. that came around many years ago.  They didn’t want anybody dating talent, none of the kids and none of their family.  He didn’t want them taking bumps, which that didn’t happen.  I think Shane really had a big part of that and that’s why Shane and Triple H had a falling out for many years, and that’s why Shane was exiled for 10 years.  Shane is still not on top of the list.

“Where is he at now?  Is he in the office?  Is he running things?  Is he Vice President?  Is he Vice CEO?  Can somebody tell me where he’s at right now because he should be there.  I mean, even with Triple H out, you’re going to have Johnny Laurinaitis, Road Dogg, and Scott Armstrong running the f**king business?  You’re not going to have Shane McMahon there?  Where’s he at?  It’s boggles me for many years too.  A lot of heat there.

“It gets more interesting, believe me.  It’s sad because when I started working for this company, there was Linda McMahon, Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon and Stephanie McMahon and now it seems to be all broken apart.  All the money in the world probably can’t fix it.  They have all the money in the world, a publicly traded company, which is ok.  The family is torn apart at this point I think.  Maybe not torn apart all the way, which I hope not, but it’s torn apart.

“Do you think Tony Khan is fighting with his dad?  No. Tony Khan is going to do what he wants to do with his dad’s money and with his money, and he’s making it big in AEW, and they’re coming together to make money.  The Jacksonville Jaguars, the European Soccer Football team, and AEW.  You don’t hear any feuds between them.  If there was, you would hear it.

“I love Shane.  I can’t say anything bad about Shane McMahon.  I love Stephanie too.  She’s never done me wrong, but I’m sure she could have put a kibosh when they gave me the ax after WrestleMania a year and a half ago.  I’m sure she could have put an end to it but she didn’t.  It is what it is.”

Chioda recently worked for AEW. He worked his last match for the company at Full Gear in November 2020 where he officiated the TNT Championship match between Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin.
