Vince McMahon surprised us all when he pulled a ruthless power play that found himself back on WWE’s Board of Directors. A company sale was part of that reinsertion for Mr. McMahon, but Triple H will presumably carry on in control of the company’s creative direction. Through it all, there are a lot of nervous individuals within the company right now.

Vince McMahon was not at SmackDown on Friday, and word is he won’t be working out of the Titan Tower Stamford offices either. That being said, Vince McMahon is still the majority shareholder, and he made it very clear that he would nix any proposed deals that he isn’t a part of.

Ringside News spoke to a tenured source within the company about Vince McMahon’s return. In the end, we were outright told that, “I don’t know of many people who see this as a positive.”

Vince McMahon initially wanted to make a WWE return and regain all of his previous power, including creative. The Board of Directors unanimously voted against this on December 27th. Only time will tell if he would get a different result now that he has re-inserted George Barrios and Michelle Wilson’s votes into the situation.

WWE’s new internal situation is just starting, and there will likely be a lot more to this story very soon. Things are also seemingly picking up on a sale front as JPMorgan was brought in to assist in finding a buyer for the sports entertainment giant.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
