Vince McMahon made headlines last year after he was involved in a hush-money scandal, which forced him to retire as WWE Chairman. After several months of laying low, McMahon made his return to WWE today following reports that he planned on returning to the company in bid to sell it. Eric Bischoff also believes McMahon returned to WWE in order to aggressively pursue a sale

WWE confirmed that Vince McMahon has been reinstated to the WWE Board of Directors, alongside two of his preferred candidates, George Barrios and Michelle Wilson. It was also made very clear that McMahon’s return does not guarantee sale will happen.

While speaking on the latest edition of his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about Vince McMahon’s WWE return. Bischoff stated that he believes McMahon returned to WWE in order to aggressively pursue a sale.

I understand your question, but I think — now I haven’t read everything that’s come out in the last couple of hours. I’ve seen some of the bigger headlines and a couple other emails and stories. But I think Vince is — his reasoning for coming back and making this move is to aggressively pursue a sale.


So in that case, I don’t think that matters. Because if he sells the company, he’s not gonna be running it anymore. And whether things ran better with him or without him is an irrelevant, a moot point Because whoever buys it isn’t going to have Vince McMahon running it anyway. They’re gonna run it. So no, I think this is Vince’s exit strategy. And whether it’ll run better with him or without him isn’t really a discussion in an exit strategy like that.

Vince McMahon also gave full support to Triple H and WWE management before he returned. It is unclear how Vince McMahon’s return will affect WWE’s creative plan, but fans will continue to dread the outcome of McMahon’s return.
