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.
Speaking on his Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED podcast last year, the 16-time world champion disclosed that he and The Game were no longer talking to each other.
During the latest episode of his To Be The Man podcast, The Nature Boy noted that he wants Triple H and Stephanie McMahon to be happy.
“As I said we’ve had our differences but I think he does a great job [in creative]. And we’ve repaired that. You know, I apologized and we didn’t (…) I just, my problem is I guess the older I get the more, I just want everybody to be happy. Does that make sense? That never is gonna happen in life but you wouldn’t want to see anybody just be unhappy. And I want him and Stephanie to be happy.
