Vince McMcMahon’s departure from TKO is chronicled in a Hollywood Reporter piece.

Powell’s POV: The story goes into Slim Jim temporarily suspending their sponsorship deal only to jump back onboard once McMahon resigned. It also notes that TKO officials were in contact with their media rights partners regarding the situation, and adds that the Netflix deal could have been put in jeopardy had the lawsuit been filed earlier.
