• Vince McMahon Is Back On The WWE Creative Team, Says Hall Of Famer
During a recent appearance on the ‘Wrestling Time Machine’ podcast, Old School WCW/WWE manager Teddy Long stated that Vince McMahon is a member of the WWE Creative Team again for sure.
Earlier this year in January, Vince became The Chairman once again. He attended last week’s RAW (which was his first backstage appearance at a WWE show since his “retirement”). People backstage said he was there to meet the returning John Cena.
As confirmed by multiple sources, Vince is responsible for booking Brock Lesnar vs. Omos at WrestleMania 39.
Here’s what the 2017 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“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.”
After working as a referee for Jim Crockett Promotions and as a manager for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, Teddy Long joined the World Wrestling Federation during the famous Attitude Era and was used as a referee right away, before eventually being used as a manager again years later as well.
He’s also known for his famous ‘SmackDown!’ General Manager role, where he used to book a lot of tag team matches and put heels in matches against The Undertaker!
