• Reason For Vince McMahon Being Backstage At Tonight’s RAW
Earlier this year, Vince McMahon returned to the Board Of Directors and became The Chairman once again.
He’s back to sell the company and to ensure that they get the best deal possible, ahead of the upcoming RAW/SmackDown/NXT TV contract negotiations.
According to Bloomberg, Vince is asking for $9 billion to sell the company, which is 37% higher than WWE’s current market value of $6.5 billion.
Since Vince’s return in January and the news coming out of WWE being up for sale, the stock has risen by 30%.
According to Sean Ross Sapp, Vince was backstage at tonight’s RAW. However, he wasn’t there to handle the creative. He was there to meet John Cena.
This was the first time Vince was backstage at a WWE show since his retirement announcement from last year.
Vince & Cena are very close, and Vince has met Cena multiple times outside of WWE since his retirement announcement. Cena also attended Vince’s birthday party last August.
Cena returned on tonight’s RAW and is going to face Austin Theory for the United States Championship at WrestleMania 39. Cena also put over Cody Rhodes on the show.
