WWE has had to make painful decisions in recent months, and it's also been the victim of the dire consequences of the global pandemic. The Stamford-based federation has managed to run its shows, but the absence of fans in the arenas has resulted in huge losses for the entire business.
Vince McMahon's company has returned to host a respectable portion of fans at WrestleMania 37, waiting for the effects of the vaccination to return to normal in the shortest possible time. To cope with an unprecedented situation, the management was forced to lay off numerous talents and insiders behind the scenes.
Killian Dain, the former NXT star who was recently released, retraced his WWE work experience during a lengthy Sportskeeda interview.
Former WWE star on working under Vince McMahon
“Triple H is the most present executive figure on a weekly basis.
NXT superstars certainly have a much better chance of confronting him than Vince McMahon, given that the latter is also the company's CEO. There is a very small window in which he is available to talk to the athletes. This can be a big problem in some situations, but you have to take it into account.
As far as I'm concerned, working under Triple H has been great, I've always enjoyed talking to him. We were able to understand each other in an ideal way” - explained Dain. Vince McMahon is often out and about due to negotiations with various television networks.
"I had very limited interactions with him, but there was never any problem, he always treated me with respect. As I said, he takes care of a lot of things. I don't mean Triple H has no schedule, but he manages to have more time to talk to superstars than Vince does.
I have nothing bad to say about McMahon, he seemed sincere enough to me and he never kept the truth from me. That was all I asked for” - continued Killian. The feeling is that we will see further cuts in the months to come.
For Vince McMahon, WWE coming out on top of the Monday Night Wars with WCW meant everything. The war wasn't just about television ratings. It was about promotional supremacy and the fact that WCW was the biggest threat to WWE in its long history.
That war, of course, was famously won by Vince McMahon and WWE in 2001, days before WrestleMania X7. It was Monday night, six days before what would eventually be labeled as the greatest WWE pay-per-view of all time.
