WWE had a very busy day yesterday. The Superstar Spectacle filmed in the morning, and then they had SmackDown later that night. They did it all without Vince McMahon around.
Ringside News has learned that Vince McMahon was not at Tropicana Field for yesterday’s television tapings. This left Triple H in charge with Kevin Dunn and Bruce Prichard.
It was not said why Vince McMahon was absent from the tapings. For what it’s worth, Vince McMahon has missed far fewer shows since they stopped touring with the blue brand. He used to miss just under half of the tapings.
Everything went according to plan without McMahon. Any time he’s absent, he’s still just a phone or Zoom call away. He can still maintain some form of a presence without needing to be there. This week Triple H, Kevin Dunn, and Bruce Prichard were left in charge.
