  1. It was stupid what he did, no question, but how can you fine someone for something BEFORE THEY EVER WORKED FOR YOUR COMPANY?

    We can get to the bottom of this fine in two words: STEPHANIE. McMAHON.

  2. I think the statement that he has been fined $100,000 is just a statement they gave to look good via the public. I do not believe that Sullivan was actually fined a single cent. There is not a court room in America that would force Sullivan to actually pay that fine if he took WWE to court because he wasn’t a WWE employee at the time.
    If you could actually hold someone legally accountable to there past statements and posts then that would mean we have a rapist as president.
