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. He eventually retired from WWE for good and was replaced by his daughter Stephanie McMahon as the CEO of WWE. His son-in-law Triple H is now the Executive Vice President of Talent and Relations as well. Vince McMahon also lied about quitting WWE recently but ended up being real in the end.
The December 30, 2022, edition of the blue brand featured an in-ring segment involving Imperium. Braun Strowman interrupted the promo and confronted GUNTHER, prompting Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci to attack the Monster Among Men.
Ricochet arrived in time to make the save for Strowman. The One and Only rushed to the ring with a chair in his hand. Gunther saw Ricochet and tried to get out of the ring. However, the Ring General got a little off on the timing and ended up getting clipped on the back of the head with a chair shot.
