Vince McMahon was the CEO of WWE before he had to step down following allegations of sexual misconduct and allegedly having paid $12 million in hush money in a huge scandal last year. Many fans believed he was retired forever, but that was not the case. This is because Vince McMahon returned to WWE last week and last night, he became the Executive Chairman of WWE once again after his daughter Stephanie McMahon resigned. Nick Khan is now the sole CEO of WWE while Triple H remains the Creative Head of WWE.
Following Vince McMahon’s return to WWE, there have been rumors that he plans on selling the company to Saudi Arabia. However, those rumors were eventually proven to be untrue.
According to recent reports, Vince McMahon’s return to WWE is primarily to facilitate the potential sale of the company. There are several potential buyers for WWE, including Saudi Arabia. It is speculated that the kingdom, which has been the subject of controversy, may be the only prospective buyer willing to retain McMahon in a position of power.
During a mailbag to PW Insider, Dave Scherer was asked a question about Vince McMahon firing everyone that Triple H hired back over the last few months, from Braun Strowman, to Bray Wyatt, to Dexter Lumis to William Regal. The general assumption is that if Vince McMahon does regain creative control, then his opinion about people that he fired in the first place isn’t likely to change.
IF, he does, and I will say IF because I don’t want to assume he will take over creative since it would really hurt my enjoyment of the company, yes everyone who he saw nothing in before he probably won’t see anything in at that time.
