• CM Punk Comments On Vince McMahon’s WWE Retirement
After running the company for 40 years, Vince McMahon was forced to retire from WWE due to the hush money scandal.
Stephanie McMahon & Nick Khan are the co-CEOs now and Triple H is the Head of Creative.
Fans can already feel a difference and think WWE shows are getting better now that Triple H is running things.
However, AEW World Champion CM Punk thinks Vince is still running the show.
Below is what Punk said during an interview on the “Absolute Geek” podcast:
“You think because he tweeted that ‘I’m retired’ that he’s not going to be hands-on, and he’s not gonna [run the show]?
Sure, we all are [hopeful of a change], but I don’t think the structure there…what’s the word I’m looking for…I don’t think the culture there changes. At all. I think it is what it is.”
