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 last year. Many fans believed he was retired forever, but that was not the case. This is because Vince McMahon returned to WWE last week and last night, he became the Executive Chairman of WWE once again after his daughter Stephanie McMahon resigned. Nick Khan is now the sole CEO of WWE while Triple H remains the Creative Head of WWE.
Following Vince McMahon’s return to WWE, there have been rumors that he plans on selling the company to Saudi Arabia. Sudu Shah is no longer with WWE as the NXT Level Up announcer has confirmed he is no longer part of the company.
On Wednesday, Shah took to Twitter to issue a statement regarding the news. It is not known what he has planned next in his career. He wrote the following:
“Yesterday was my final day with the WWE. What an incredible experience working with some of the most talented people I’ve ever met. Thank you to everyone who watched and supported every week!”
Shah, real name Sudu Upadhyay, previously worked for Fox 5 News in Atlanta and as a sports anchor on WMC-TV in Memphis for three years. Also, he did viral campaigns for such platforms as ESPN, Bleacher Report, and SBNation.
Shah started with WWE in January 2022 on 205 Live, working alongside Nigel McGuinness on commentary. He stayed in this role when the show was rebranded as NXT Level Up and had been working with Bryon Saxton.
