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. He eventually retired from WWE for good and was replaced by his daughter Stephanie McMahon as the CEO of WWE. His son-in-law Triple H is now the Executive Vice President of Talent and Relations as well. Vince McMahon also lied about quitting WWE recently but ended up being real in the end.
However, Vince McMahon shockingly made his return to WWE as a member of the Board Of Directors.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer simply said that there are even more things about this Vince McMahon situation that the WWE Board of Directors is trying to keep out of the public eye. It was not specified exactly what they are hiding, but it seems to be enough to warrant such an effort.
If there had to be a rubber stamp vote [to sell the company], it’s not like they would reject him, because all the stuff that happened in the last week, they’re trying to present a unified company. They’re also happy that Vince McMahon is back, and how wonderful it is. Like again, on December 27th that board voted unanimously that ‘we don’t want you back,’ and you know, noted that one of the reason is there is stuff that the people don’t know that hasn’t come out. I don’t know what that is, but they mentioned that is one of the reasons him coming back wasn’t the best.
