WWE President Nick Khan is one of the most daring people in the company. He led the charge for WWE mass releasing talent, and didn’t seem to mind the heat from them. When asked about that subject during a recent interview, he doubled down on that story.

Khan recently sat down with Ariel Helwani for BT Sport. He talked about his relationship with the fans of the product. Khan also that he doesn’t want any credit for something that was a hit, but wants all the credit when it’s a disaster.

The people I love and care for, of course I care what they think of me as an individual. The people I do not know, they’re allowed to have their opinions. It does not affect me in any way. I don’t read it. I don’t look at it. It’s not something I derive any pleasure or pain from. So, it’s nothing that affects what I do and how I look at things in terms of getting blame for things, when something’s a disaster I want all of the credit, when something’s a hit, I want none of the credit. So, if I’m blamed for what the fans don’t like, then that’s fine by me. If I’m blamed for what the fans don’t like and it takes some heat off the people making hard decisions I’m good with it all day long.

Khan then talked about who has the supreme creative control in WWE. Obviously, he said that it’s Vince McMahon who calls the shots. Whether it’s about production from Kevin Dunn or Bruce Prichard’s creative process, Vince has the final word on everything within WWE.


There’s a collective of us, but in WWE, as you know there’s one boss, that’s Vince as you know. So, from Bruce Prichard who oversees the entire creative process, between Kevin Dunn who oversees all of our productions, Stephanie McMahon and Paul Levesque with ultimately Vince making the final decision on it.

Nick Khan recently confirmed that WWE is not going into sale. He also pushed to release many WWE talents last month, which left fans wondering if that is their intention. Khan became part of WWE board of directors on June 1, 2021. Since then, he has been taking his duties and responsibilities very seriously.
