Federal law enforcement officials announced today plans for a renewed effort to solve the 15-year-old “cold case” of determining who blew up the limousine of sports-entertainment mogul Vince McMahon.
The explosion — from which Vince McMahon somehow escaped completely unharmed, despite having climbed into the limo mere seconds beforehand — has vexed investigators since June 1997, leading some conspiracy theorists to suggest it was an “inside job.”
Among the theories that have been debated among true-crime enthusiasts:
- McMahon’s limo was destroyed by a cabal of former promoters from wrestling’s territorial era
- McMahon’s limo was destroyed by disgruntled investors who lost money with the XFL
- McMahon’s limo had faulty wiring
- McMahon faked his own blowing-up to collect on his high-value limo insurance policy
McMahon said he hopes he can solve this mysterious crime during his lifetime, because after that he’ll have no chance in Hell.
