Vince McMahon, as the head of such a hotly debated organization like the WWE, isn't always the most popular individual amongst the promotion's fan base.
His decisions over the years have often polarized the WWE Universe and the 69-year-old is often the man who bears the brunt of any criticism against the company.
Despite all of this, though, even his worse enemies surely wouldn't wish any ill on the man who has helped the WWE become the number one in sports entertainment. As such, one concerning report today allegedly documenting the CEO's declining health will be a worry for everyone associated with the WWE.

The rumor comes from one WWE fan who posted an eye-witness account on Reddit supposedly detailing McMahon's actions at the recent Raw show in Montreal.
According to the fan he claimed Vince McMahon, at the show to honor long time friend and wrestler Pat Patterson, had to be guided to the ring by a giant spotlight before crew members, "making hand motions and pointing to various things," helped guide him into the ring itself.

The accusation goes on, describing how other WWE crew members rushed to Vince McMahon's aid once the speech was finished - guiding the veteran CEO backstage "beaming pocket flashlights to the floor for Vince to follow."
The claim is certainly a worrying one, especially when the writer makes note that no one else - crew member of performer - had to have assistance in leaving the arena.
"Ambrose took the same exist and did fine on his own and so did Sami. Various other crew members took the exist with no problem/assistance and plus Vince was the only one with a spotlight during his entrance."
From the fan's view at least the strange actions suggest that McMahon's eyesight is failing him.
As the head of the WWE for so many years Vince McMahon's status has led to much debate already within the wrestling community. Of course, at this stage though there is no way to know how accurate the fan's report is and indeed whether McMahon's eyesight is indeed on the decline.
This is not the first time, though, that the WWE CEO's vision has been brought into question. A video emerged earlier this year showing McMahon appearing to struggle to make his way to greet Brock Lesnar at Levi's Stadium ahead of WrestleMania 31.
While this story must firmly remain in the rumor category for now this kind of speculation will only increase the debate surrounding how long Vince McMahon will, or should, remain at the head of the WWE.
