Vince McMahon’s mother died at the age of 101. Vicki Askew died peacefully on January 20th at her home in The Woodlands, Texas, of natural causes. She was born on July 11, 1920, in Florence, South Carolina, to Orpheus William Hanner and Victoria Kennedy Hanner, and was their only child.

On August 24, 1945, Vicki gave birth to Vince. As the CEO of WWE, he would go on to revolutionise the pro wrestling industry, and the company is clearly still the market leader today. It’s a legacy and a passion for McMahon. Vicki was said to be a huge fan of the game of tennis and continued to play it well into her 90s, which is incredible. In her obituary, she was described as having a beautiful soprano voice and singing in numerous church choirs.

On January 22, Askew’s funeral took place and it was a private family affair. There’s no word on who attended, but it’s a private matter for Vince and his family. Vince’s brother Rod, who died one year to the day before their mother, had also passed away.

The go home SmackDown show before the Rumble

Live from Kansas City, Missouri, we got the latest episode of WWE SmackDown. The show also featured the Royal Rumble event’s final push. The main event featured Universal champion Roman Reigns and title contender Seth Rollins with this in mind. And there was an interesting back-and-forth between the two. Rollins boasted about breaking up The Shield, while Reigns admitted that he has never truly forgiven his ‘brother’ for the betrayal. What was perplexing about the segment, however, was that it contradicted what had previously been presented.

Rollins has been portrayed as the clever one who has been cheered in recent weeks. He was the de-facto babyface in a feud between two heels. Reigns, on the other hand, showed a lot of emotion this week and even dropped the whole ‘Tribal Chief’ gimmick. Rollins’ taunts seemed to bother him genuinely. As the show came to a close, he attempted to attack ‘The Messiah,’ but missed his shot. There’s a lot of interesting stuff here. On the one hand, it appears to be a reasonable way to demonstrate that they are both equally sympathetic and that they have changed significantly since then. On the other hand, it reeks to some extent of sloppy writing.
