Vince McMahon returned to WWE this year and played a major role in the company’s sale to Endeavour.
While Vince doesn’t run the day-to-day creative process in the company anymore, he still looks over it, suggests changes and approves the major booking decisions made by Triple H.
Also, Vince can still get what he wants creatively. For example, Vince is the one that told Triple H to book Brock Lesnar vs. Omos at WrestleMania 39.
PWTorch’s Wade Keller recently spoke to some WWE Superstars that are happy about Vince’s return, and they told him that a lot of wrestlers are actually happy about Vince’s return and prefer Vince over HHH:
“The wrestlers who are more sympathetic or okay with or even somewhat happy with Vince returning – the wrestlers I talked to directly like Vince better but they also indicated they are not alone and that there are people who are happy Vince is back.
It’s natural that some wrestlers would think that they were getting a better push under Vince McMahon than Paul Levesque because every booker is gonna have their favorites that they like a little more than others and those people get a boost and others will be like, hey, I think I was in a better position under Vince.
Some of it is just that. It’s purely based on self-interest that they were getting a better push.”
Keller also noted that he was told Triple H has a different plan for top WWE stars than Vince had:
“One person I asked said they think that Vince McMahon is more focused on building strong babyfaces and Paul Levesque has more of a focus, and an interest, in building heels.”
This doesn’t come as a surprise, as Triple H is one of the greatest heels in pro-wrestling history.
