A lot has changed in WWE in recent months. It all started in the summer of last year, when Vince McMahon announced his retirement leaving everyone speechless. Vince has decided to step aside for a long series of reasons, including the advance of age and the serious allegations of misconduct that fell upon him following an investigation by the Wall Street Journal.
His daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan took over from him, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team. The 14-time world champion did not align himself with the policy of his illustrious predecessor, indeed he did not hesitate to make a series of changes to the WWE product.
As if that weren't enough, The Game brought back several stars who had been released during the pandemic. The big comebacks of Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano sent fans into raptures and it truly felt like the beginning of a new era.
WWE can't find peace
In the last two weeks, there have been new tremors. Vince McMahon made his sensational return to WWE, while his daughter Stephanie resigned amid general amazement. There are also rumors that the company is in the process of being sold.
The federation had to collect a couple of very heavy farewells: those of Sasha Banks and Mandy Rose. In the latest edition of 'The Wrestling Outlaws' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo praised Mandy and Sasha: “I'm glad that Sasha Banks and Mandy Rose had the courage to leave WWE to get into own.
It's a beautiful thing from my point of view. They are both involved in various projects, even outside the world of wrestling. It is testimony that the world does not end after WWE. I like the fact that now the wrestlers themselves are leaving the company." About a week ago, news broke that the company had been sold to the Saudi Arabian Investment Fund.
A speculation that was immediately branded as false. Wrestling veteran Vince Russo firmly believes that Vince McMahon fired Road Dogg from WWE to punish his son-in-law Triple H. "So bro, when your son-in-law (Triple H) is on his deathbed, Vince McMahon takes over NXT, fires everybody Triple H hired, and does a whitewash of everything.
Bro, you do that while your son-in-law is on his deathbed. Bro, to me, that was the punishment. Remember Chris? Shortly thereafter, what did Stephanie do? Personal issues, 'I'm going to take some time off to be with my family."
