Vince McMahon is WWE’s Chairman and oversees everything that goes on in the company, right to the very last detail. Ronda Rousey match also outraged Vince McMahon.
WWE have released Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett, and Buddy Murphy. The reason cited was part of budget cuts, and Strowman was being paid $1.2 million per year according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The former WWE Universal Champion signed a new contract in October 2019, so the budget cut regarding Strowman is the WWE’s biggest saving financially from all of the talent cuts in the last year plus during the pandemic.
After that, they also released Bray Wyatt and more NXT Superstars such as Bronson Reed and Bobby Fish. Now NXT is set to undergo a massive change including a new logo and Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard will be taking charge of the black and gold brand.
According to Ringside News, Vince Russo called “both FOX and USA Networks in the past year” so that he can get a consultant job in WWE. He also pitched that the networks “discuss with Vince McMahon the possibility of bringing him back.” A good first step happened for Russo, as he was recently interviewed for a WWE series.
Who wants Vince Russo back in WWE? Apparently he does despite him saying he’s not “looking for a job” We are told Russo called both FOX and USA Networks in the past year trying to get them to hire him as a consultant or discuss with McMahon the possibility of bringing him back
