Vince McMahon wants creative power back in WWE?

In the last 48 hours, the news of a possible return to the top floors of WWE by Vince Mcmahon had resurfaced strongly, with the former Chairman still holding most of the shares in his company, which therefore makes him to all intents and purposes still the owner of WWE.
As reported again by the Wall Street Journal, an important newspaper that started the McMahon scandal, the former Chairman was plotting to return to power thanks to the support of some executives still loyal to him, to then sell the company.
After only a few hours, several official news emerged, including from the Stamford federation, which communicated to fans and shareholders how Vince McMahon is in fact back on the board of directors of the company that he himself contributed to becoming number one in the world, with the intention of capitalizing as much as possible on the sale of the same, together with two other former executives brought back in the saddle by McMahon.
Vince McMahon doesn't give up
Apparently, Vince McMahon's initial intention was to return to having the exact same power he had before his step back in the federation and therefore, in addition to corporate decision-making power, also creative power for weekly shows and PPVs.
Apparently, the rest of the board would not have agreed with this decision, with McMahon thus looking for a buyer to sell everything. The usual Dave Meltzer took care of reporting this indiscretion, who revealed in the latest newsletter of the Wrestling Observer: "I think everyone understands...
that he's back for it and that's what he's trying to bring back even though many are still skeptical about the long term, because Vince wanted to come back to direct it, I mean that's what he wanted... that's what he's still looking for to do, a week ago...
but he didn't get it." Vince McMahon allegedly didn't like the talent he released during the pandemic, alleges a WWE employee as per a recent report. A top WWE official informed Fightful Select that Vince didn't like the talent he fired.
"I can't count how many interviews I've read or people I talked to outside of 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.
