Stephanie McMahon is very hands on with the way that WWE runs. Sadly, this also means that she has to also take some of the heat when the WWE isn’t doing as expected. It seems that Stephanie McMahon is going through that right now as FOX is very upset with how WWE is doing. WWE Releasing Another Star After Smackdown?
With AEW doing extremely well in terms of ratings; this is making FOX very jealous as well as WWE in general. A meeting was recently had with the higher ups in WWE from Fox where they were told that they (FOX) were not too happy about the ratings for WWE and them promoting their programming on Peacock.
Fox had originally told Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and other executives in 2018 that if USA Network is “embarrassed and ashamed of their programming and that Fox would welcome them as they were.” That being said, it is reported that “at least one direct conversation that Vince McMahon had with Rupert Murdoch in recent months” occurred where “that subject wasn’t said to be broached.” It was reported that those in WWE said that concern has not been brought up and the two work with “great respect” between WWE and Fox.
WWE have been having many meetings over this in recent months..
