WWE saw a huge change as Vince McMahon returned to the company and regained his spot as Chairman of their Board of Directors. Nick Khan is now the only CEO of the company, because Stephanie McMahon stepped down.

A new report from Fightful’s paywall explained how many within WWE are feeling about this situation. It was said that many are “confused” by what is going on.

It was also noted how Stephanie McMahon used the word “animosity” during a meeting about Vince McMahon’s return to the company. She quickly fixed that and used the word “angst” instead, but the fact is that a lot of her staff was fired during WWE’s massive budget cuts.

Stephanie McMahon led an employee meeting on January 6 where she admitted “there’s naturally some animosity” before correcting the term to “angst,” regarding some’s feelings about Vince McMahon forcing his way back in. Much of Stephanie McMahon’s own team was dismantled in major cuts during the pandemic.


Several WWE talent messaged Fightful, very confused by the situation, asking what it “really” meant for both Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan. The general consensus that we gauged was uncertainty of what a move like this actually means. One talent heavily stressed that they believe Vince McMahon taking over creative duties would lead to public frustration from the roster. Another source said that they’re hopeful this means a sale is coming.

Stephanie McMahon just got started in her new role as co-CEO, but then her father pulled a ruthless business move and found his way back. Now Vince McMahon is Chairman of the Board of Directors once again.

Vince McMahon’s return to WWE saw Stephanie McMahon’s exit and the company’s potential sale. A new report out says that the company’s sale to Saudi Arabia is a done deal at this point. Only time will tell who own WWE by the time WrestleMania rolls around, but there are certainly a lot of unanswered questions in this situation.

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.
