• Backstage News On The Royal Rumble Process Without Vince McMahon In Charge For The First Time Ever
For the first time ever, Royal Rumble wasn’t booked by Vince McMahon. On the other hand, this year’s Royal Rumble was Triple H’s first as a booker.
Royal Rumble 2022 was reportedly a mess backstage, mainly because of Shane McMahon going into business for himself, for which Vince sent him home.
According to Fightful Select, this year’s Royal Rumble process was the easiest in a long time:
“One talent had noted to us that the process of the Rumble itself was the easiest in a long time without Vince McMahon at the helm and that there were way less last minute changes.
From a day-to-day and weekly basis, the atmosphere is much more laid back.
One of the only reminders of Vince’s influence remains the ‘Vince’s office’ directional sign that hasn’t been changed since he left but points to a section of the backstage area that is completely different.”
