Jon Moxley kissed Effy during a GCW match over the weekend, leading to Jim Cornette ripping the match on Twitter.
Glad to see Plumber Moxley representing @AEW with such class. Has there ever been a "World Champion" that was SO intent on embarrassing himself and his profession as this balding mudshow nitwit? Special props to his opponent who apparently wandered in from a homeless shelter. https://t.co/Hk4lK1KbcU

Moxley was always critical of Vince McMahon, while Kurt Angle is a bigger fan of Mr. McMahon.
Vince McMahon recently announced his retirement from his roles as Chairman and CEO of WWE. It was later clarified that he was also done with his work on creative. Some reports have emerged regarding his backstage performance as well. It was revealed that Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan will serve as Co-CEOs of WWE, while Triple H is EVP of Talent Relations and Head of Creative. However, many believe that Vince is not actually fully retired and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is also on the list. Previously, former WWE star CM Punk suggested that McMahon is still involved in the production.
Kurt Angle doesn’t believe if Vince McMahon is fully retired
Angle echoed a lot of those sentiments on the Cafe de Rene podcast, saying McMahon wouldn’t surrender control of WWE until he takes his final breath. Here is what he believes:
“I personally don’t think he’s fully retired,” Angle told Rene Dupree, who seemed to agree with his former WWE colleague. “You know Vince, he’s gonna be behind-the-scenes [laughs]. Vince is not letting go of that company, he will not let it go until his hands are dead cold and they pry it out of his cold, dead hands. He’s not letting go of that company until he dies. And that’s just it.”
“And you know, I’m not trying to cause any problems for WWE or for Vince McMahon, because I love Vince to death,” Angle continued. “But there is no way he is going to let it go. He already set up, you know, Stephanie [McMahon] being in charge and Triple H being in charge of talent relations. He’s got everybody in the right positions so that he could continue to run the show.”
Angle and others have continued to question McMahon’s retirement. Several news outlets have reported that McMahon has been removed from both WWE’s internal list of performers and the entirety of the company’s corporate structure. Fans are certainly enjoying the new presentation under Triple H.
