Vince McMahon’s return to WWE was pulled off thanks to cut-throat business move. As majority shareholder, Vince McMahon made it clear that he would not approve any media rights deals without him on the Board of Directors. Vince McMahon got what he wants, and this could result in a massive change for the company before those television deals even kick off.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that the company’s plan is to sell before they get into new television deal talks. This is very interesting as the company is set to enter into those talks very soon.
“Now, the idea is that they’re looking to sell before the TV deal.“
We will have to see if WWE can arrange a sale before they get into their new television talks. This is very interesting and could add another element to their next set of negotiations. The new television deal will go into effect at the end of 2024, and talks are set to start before the end of 2023.
Vince McMahon’s return to WWE only means he is back on the Board of Directors, for now. As Ringside News exclusively reported, it wouldn’t surprise many in the company if he eventually finds his way back to creative as well.
