WWE suffered a real internal earthquake a few months ago from the sensational news of the retirement of Vince McMahon, who preferred to take a step back after being overwhelmed by a series of very serious personal accusations that emerged thanks to the Wall Street Journal.
His executive role was taken over by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan as corporate CEOs, while Triple H was put in charge of the creative team. Stephanie's husband had to retire from wrestling shortly before WrestleMania 38, not wanting to take any chances after undergoing major heart surgery in September 2021.
In addition to having had an outstanding career in the ring, Hunter has also shown that he can do great things backstage, even before Vince's retirement. However, all of this was arrested in the past few hours, when the former Chairman returned first to the WWE CDA and then once again replaced his daughter Stehanie McMahon as Chairman of the WWE board, even making his second daughter resign.
In the past few hours there has been nothing but talk of the alleged sale of the Stamford-based company to the Arab fund of the Saudi country, with the rumor of the agreement already found between the two parties which, however, has not yet been confirmed.
Vince McMahon has clear ideas
According to what was reported in the last few hours by the well-known Wrestling Observer site, through the words of the usual Dave Meltzer, it would seem that Vince McMahon immediately looked for buyers for his WWE, from the first day he decided to take a step back from the guide of the company.
Regarding this topic, Meltzer has in fact stated: “One thing we've known for a while is that ever since Vince's exit, he's been talking to the Saudis. I mean, it didn't come up last week. His return is obviously related to the deal, which by the way, for the people running the company, for all the reasons we were talking about, they probably felt very uncomfortable about closing the deal, because maybe , are all looking to the long-term future of the company and therefore also to their cu**es.
So that's a whole other story. Of course, the people at the top, Nick Khan and Triple H, who voted for one street before this (and thus keeping Vince off the board) now have to vote for another cause." McMahon's WWE comeback was confirmed today.
