Vince McMahon runs WWE the way he wants it to go and there is really no convincing him otherwise. His entire life revolves around WWE and he lives in an ultimate bubble in that regard.
Wade Keller recently had a caller who was in the know call into PW Torch‘s Raw Post show where he explained exactly what McMahon spends his time doing and how he gets information from outside his bubble.
The short answer is that Vince McMahon doesn’t really get any news that doesn’t pertain to his business. Therefore, he is sort of shut out. It was said that McMahon just works out and watches WWE which is how he spends his time.
Vince McMahon is unaware of “the real world” outside of WWE. This is why he has people around and it is even hard for them to relay anything of importance to him if he doesn’t want to hear it.
It is also said that Vince McMahon doesn’t keep track of NXT either and he “maybe” watches TakeOver events. Therefore, he doesn’t even stay up to date on all of news going on within his own company if it doesn’t have to do with the main roster.
