Vince McMahon has the last word in anything that goes on in WWE and that has done its fair share of harm according to fans and Superstars. The general complaint is that WWE does not build younger Superstars and the older talents receive more attention.
McMahon’s idea regarding the booking of older Superstars has changed over the years. The current top Superstars in the company are ones who would have been too old for McMahon in the past.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed McMahon’s change of mindset. He said that as Vince McMahon is over 70 years old, someone in their 40’s does not seem as old as they used to for him. He mentioned how McMahon tried to focus on Tom McGhee, Bret Hart, and the Ultimate Warrior when Hulk Hogan still could have competed in the squared circle.
We will have to see McMahon whether changes his mindset again.
