WWE went through wild 24 hours, and it’s not over yet. Vince McMahon maneuvered his way back into WWE and got himself a seat on the Board of Directors, with Michelle Wilson and George Barrios as well. Prior to SmackDown, WWE held an all hands on deck meeting, but talent was not invited.
Sean Sapp reported a few notes from this meeting prior to SmackDown. It was stressed that WWE’s day-to-day operation will not change. That being said, Triple H will remain in creative control, with Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan as the company’s co-CEOs.
– The meeting was pushed back slightly from 3:30 PM EST, and got underway before 4 PM EST.
– Talent was not involved.
– It was stressed that day-to-day is not changing across the board.
– They spoke about Vince McMahon being the controlling shareholder and the possibility of a sale, as well as the media rights deal.
– Stephanie McMahon, Nick Khan and Frank Riddick led the meeting.
We will have to see if Vince McMahon is content with only having a seat on the company’s Board of Directors. The initial narrative was that he was only coming in for the company’s television rights talks and a potential sale. Only time will tell how WWE will look in a year from now, or who will own it.
