Triple H has instead become the new head of the creative team, starting a new era. The 14-time world champion has deviated significantly from the policy of his illustrious predecessor and has not hesitated to make substantial changes to the WWE product.
The Game also brought back several stars to the company who had been released during the pandemic, among which the names of Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Johnny Gargano and Karrion Kross stand out. In recent weeks, rumors of a possible return of Vince McMahon to WWE have become increasingly insistent.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Vince is still the company's majority shareholder and would like to place himself and two executives - Michelle Wilson and George Barrios - on the board of directors. Speaking to Sportskeeda, Bill Apter expressed his opinion on recent events.
Bill Apter reflects on Vince McMahon
“There are a lot of fans who don't follow wrestling every day and don't read the Wall Street Journal articles. Industry insiders know the story of Vince McMahon very well and what has happened in the last few months, but not all people are so informed.
A lot of fans would be thrilled to see Vince in the ring again. He could very well return to the Royal Rumble, I don't know in what form. It would be enough for him to say: 'Welcome to the Royal Rumble' and the fans would go ecstatic.
People might even forget the scandal that had led to his retirement” - analyzed Bill Apter. “I've known Vince McMahon for almost four decades and I know very well how he thinks in certain situations. If he wants something to happen, that thing will happen sooner or later.
When the story of his collaborators' bad advice came out, I knew there was something big going on. Vince has not yet said the last word in this business” – added Bill. Despite a news-filled 2022 in the wrestling world, there has been no bigger announcement than Vince McMahon declaring his retirement.
"I feel that he's [Vince McMahon] still there and there's no way to keep him away as far as his knowledge of the business [goes]. If it wasn't for his knowledge, a lot of us wouldn't be doing the things we're doing today. I wish him all the best.
He's always been a good friend to me. And then he became a boss and then he became a friend again. To me, he was part of my life and is the reason I'm sitting here talking to you, along with Harley Race."
