As Bob Dylan was sang, ‘The Times, They Are A Changin’ and that couldn’t be anymore true as it was recently revealed that Vince McMahon retired from his position of WWE Chairman. In another update, it is being reported that Vince McMahon is no longer listed on the company’s internal roster as well. Vince McMahon’s last match in the WWE would officially be at WWE WrestleMania 38 against Pat McAfee, a match that the controversial wrestling promoter won.
One man who refuses to say a negative word about Vince McMahon is one of McMahon’s former rivals in Paul Heyman, the former ECW executive and current Special Counsel for Roman Reigns recently appeared on the MackMania podcast to discuss a post Vince McMahon WWE.

“I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Vince McMahon,”. What a hypocrite I would be to say anything less than extraordinarily complementary about that man. His work ethic, his willingness to put in 20, 22 hours a day, every day, seven days a week, 365 days a year for 40 years is why we are all fabulously wealthy, and will never get the credit nor the understanding that he deserves and that he earned.”
Heyman also discussed McMahon’s successor’s making up largely of Nick Khan, Stephanie McMahon and Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque
“Everyone right now who is steering this ship was prepared to steer this ship by Vince himself,” Heyman reiterated, “which makes me very comfortable in their vision and their hopes and dreams and desires and their new vision … which should not be Vince’s vision, it should be their vision. Because Vince’s vision wasn’t his father’s vision. It’s his vision. And he created a universe in an image that he believed in, and those who are now running the show will create the progression of that universe into the next generation of that universe based on the things that they agreed with and the things that they disagreed with.”
