• WWE Stars’ Reaction To Vince McMahon Possibly Returning

As we noted earlier, Vince McMahon wants to return to power in time for WWE’s upcoming media rights negotiations.

In an update from the Wall Street Journal, Vince is basically holding WWE hostage:

“Vince McMahon has communicated to the Board that unless he has direct involvement as Executive Chairman from the outset of a strategic review, he won’t support or approve any media-rights deal or sale.”

Fightful Select talked to multiple WWE wrestlers and they are worried about Vince possibly returning to run the creative department again (instead of Triple H):

“Another top WWE talent wasn’t only given any information, but also asked what the possibilities of a return to creative would be. The idea that McMahon could return to creative has been a common concern among talent.

The two sources we heard back from within the creative department had not learned of any adjustments to their duties, and said they were sent some notes for SmackDown shortly before the Wall Street Journal’s Vince McMahon story.

Keeping with the theme, production employees were also not informed. The unanimous reaction that we gained from the many who commented on the matter was either bad news, or ‘news above their pay grade’ that they wouldn’t concern themselves with until they needed to. One source noted the increase in the after hours stock price.

One talent said, ‘Finding out online is scary, and it’s Vince, so I don’t believe a word he says. I hope current management and everything doesn’t change, but only time will tell,’ before noting they have a lot of respect for Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Another talent says they believe there will be roster uproar if Vince McMahon returns to head up creative.

‘I can’t count how many interviews I’ve read or people I talked to outside the company that said ‘Vince liked me, but I got fired.’ He didn’t like you, he didn’t like any of them. He fired or they wouldn’t have been fired during a pandemic,’ one concerned higher up said.

‘I would be blown away if he returned to creative,’ a recently signed talent said.”
