It has now been several months since Vince McMahon announced his sensational farewell to WWE. The now former Chairman of the company decided to say enough last July, overwhelmed by serious allegations of misconduct following an investigation by the Wall Street Journal.
The former CEO of the Stamford company had in fact been accused of having deliberately covered up extramarital affairs that he had had with several women, paying for their silence with money from the company's coffers. His right-hand man John Laurinaitis – former head of talent relations – was also dismissed from the Stamford federation amid general amazement.
Vince's place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan as CEO, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team, both on the main roster and on NXT. In recent weeks, many athletes and insiders have wanted to have their say in the various podcasts and in their various interviews, trying to explain how WWE has changed from having Vince McMahon as its undisputed boss, to instead having several management figures now, with Triple H favoring the return of very important Superstars released in the past by Vince, such as Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman and many others.
WWE has big plans
According to Stephanie McMahon herself during the Q3 call to handle the company's last quarter of 2022 numbers, the Chairman was asked if WWE would ever acquire an external company, with Steph's response being: "Just to give you a few examples of what I mean by that, it has to align with our capabilities, whether it's a small wrestling promotion, let's say, whether it's a big international one." Stephanie has therefore not denied that WWE may acquire some companies in the future, with journalist Brandon Thurston who has already made a list of all those companies that could hardly have a collaboration with WWE which then leads to an acquisition, with the first on the list which are the Japanese, given that they are almost all held by the same financial groups of the Asian country, which are real immovable giants.
PWInsider is now reporting that Eric Young is on his way back to WWE. Check out the report below: "Former Impact Wrestling Champion Eric Young, 42, is returning to World Wrestling Entertainment, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources." Shortly after, Young shared his thoughts on the big change and praised the former WWE Champion.
“Things would have been way different for me [if Triple H had control at the time]. I would do anything for him. I'd run through a wall. Help him hide a dead body [laughs], whatever he asked me to do. I respect him that much,” said Young.
