Adult-contemporary pop crooner Vince McMahon, best known for his groundbreaking live performance of his single “Stand Back” at the 1987 Slammy Awards, is finally back in the headlines, but this time for the wrong reasons.
Back in the late 1980s, the future looked bright for the sharp-dressed singer-songwriter, and the world expected a lot from McMahon, who sang in Stand Back that he had a “lotta big plans.”
Sadly, McMahon turned out to be something of a one-hit wonder, never again attaining the success of Stand Back, which reached a peak chart position of #501 on the Billboard 500.
Now the musician is facing allegations that he violated practically every HR policy at his day job, a Stamford-based production company that creates several pro wrestling television programs.
The negative publicity surrounding the allegations has delayed the release of McMahon’s long-awaited debut album, titled Quite Frankly and Things of That Nature.
