Vince McMahon remains one of the biggest names in the pro wrestling world. He managed to draw the ire of many thanks to his hush-money scandal last year. Despite the controversy, McMahon returned to his role as Executive Chairman of WWE earlier this year and was seen backstage on a recent episode of RAW. However, it seems some believe McMahon is still part of WWE Creative.
Vince McMahon’s return to the Board of Directors was met with extensive disapproval, as it was perceived as a confrontational move to regain authority over WWE. Nevertheless, he managed to overcome the challenges and was appointed as the Executive Chairman, following Stephanie McMahon’s resignation. Meanwhile, Nick Khan continued to serve as the CEO.
Vince McMahon’s comeback was largely so that he could set up WWE for a potential sale, something that has been a huge topic of discussion for numerous years in the pro wrestling world. Many huge buyers are also said to be up for consideration.
That’s not the only point of discussion for many as they feel that Vince McMahon is secretly back as part of the Creative department in the company now.
While speaking on The Wrestling Time Machine podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Teddy Long talked about Vince McMahon being back in the company. Long stated that he believes Vince McMahon is still part of the Creative department in the company.
Yeah, Vince is certainly a part of creative, I would believe that. But like I said man, this is the man’s life. So leave him alone. If he wants to step in and be a part of it, let him be a part of it.
McMahon’s appearance backstage may have been more complicated than initially assumed as well. Regardless, it’s still likely that Triple H is the one calling the shots in WWE Creative.
