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. However, those rumors were eventually proven to be untrue.
According to recent reports, Vince McMahon’s return to WWE is primarily to facilitate the potential sale of the company. There are several potential buyers for WWE, including Saudi Arabia. It is speculated that the kingdom, which has been the subject of controversy, may be the only prospective buyer willing to retain McMahon in a position of power.
Rene Dupree eventually asked for his release back in 2007 and has not been back to the company since. While speaking on the latest episode of his Cafe de Rene podcast, Dupree claimed that WWE asked him to return to the company.
“I was contacted by the WWE. Well, an agent contacted someone that I’ve known for years and that person contacted me. But it’s not in the cards. I’m sorry everyone. But yes, they (…) I mean, I still keep it a secret but there was talks of, anyway.”
During a previous episode of his podcast, Renee Dupree talked about his time working with Triple H. He called The Game a ‘dick,’ among other things.
“I thought he was a d*ck. [Did he say something in particular that pissed you off?] Ugh, just an a**hole. But there’s times like a very few times, but the few times, and I noticed whenever he’d be complimentary of me it meant so much. Because he was always just like a snob f**king make these off-handed comments, right? Then when he actually complimented me, I felt like, ‘wow! it’s so cool.’ And he, you know. But overall, he was a d*ck,”
