WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has the final say in anything and everything that goes on in the company, for better or worse. Vince McMahon also sabotaged Jon Moxley’s matches.
Vince McMahon made several appearances during the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view, as he was involved with Cleopatra’s egg. It was simply a product placement for The Rock’s Red Notice film. According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Vince McMahon made so many appearances due to garnering huge ratings.
“Tomorrow it’s Indiana Jones … let’s find out, you know it’s like sometimes these things flop and sometimes these things work. It’s a gimmick to get a rating and do product placement for Rock’s movie also. It’s to get a rating, it’s to get Vince.
We’ll see what Vince means on television. He hadn’t been on TV a lot lately. He hasn’t been on TV in a long time. Now he’s back and, you know, and they made a big deal. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh Vince is there.’”
Paul Heyman recently spoke on BT Sport’s “Ariel Helwani Meets” show, where he revealed why Vince McMahon removed him from Talking Smack.
“The culture here in WWE is ‘do it yesterday’. This is why the moment someone realized, ‘Oh, wait a second. If we are going to do live crowds again and Roman Reigns will always be in the dark match main event, we need Heyman for that. So we cannot do the show there, has to be in the studio, and Heyman cannot be in the studio. This is because we only have 3-4 weeks of Heyman on Talking Smack before we have to do something different. Vince says- ‘Get rid of him now.’ ‘Wait a minute, we still have 3-4 weeks to decide… ‘Vince says – ‘Get rid of him now. That’s the decision. Start replacing him now.”
