• Vince McMahon Is Firmly Back In Charge Of WWE Creative
During yesterday’s interview on Squawk in the Box, Vince McMahon was asked if he’ll be involved in the WWE creative again after the sale. He said the following:
“Yes and no. On a higher level, yes.
In the weeds, no. Can’t do that.”
However, he was firmly back in charge of the creative on last night’s RAW after WrestleMania 39.
According to PWInsider, late rewrites for the show were ordered 15-20 minutes before RAW started and the writers felt weird about this, as that is something that doesn’t happen under Triple H.
Changes were coming late into the show as well, and these were ordered directly by Vince, who had his own office backstage, the way he used to have before his retirement last year.
The show began with HHH being on the headset backstage. However, as the show progressed, Vince became more & more involved.
The feeling backstage is that Vince is going to take over everything again, and this hurt the morale among talent backstage.
