New details on the Royal Rumble

WWE needs the Royal Rumble to be successful, also to dispel the clouds that have gathered over the company's future. Indeed, 2023 began with the sensational return of Vince McMahon, who was elected as executive chairman of the board of directors.

His daughter Stephanie has resigned amidst astonishment there are rumors that the company is about to be sold. In the latest edition of the 'Hall of Fame' podcast, Booker T gave his candid opinion on the future of the company: “It is not true that WWE has weakened with the return of Vince Mcmahon, it is just as strong as it was two months does.

There has been a lot of talk about the company in recent weeks and that's not necessarily a bad thing. If I think WWE will be sold soon? Absolutely not, but that's just my opinion. It would surprise me tremendously if the company were sold within the next 365 days.

I've never been in a position like this, but it's not something that happens overnight." A recent report from Xero News stated that Rock and Austin could be hidden in a private trailer away from everybody else. "WWE are keeping surprises up their sleeve for this years show - keeping cards close to their chest.

I'm told if The Rock or Stone Cold Steve Austin are showing up, they would be held in a trailer backstage where nobody knows they are there until the last minute."
