Vince McMahon’s shocking return to WWE last week led to a lot of changes that are still being felt even now. It all started after McMahon became part of the Board of Directors. Right after that, McMahon became the Executive Chairman of WWE once again, following Stephanie McMahon’s abrupt resignation. Many fans were shocked by Stephanie resigning. In fact, it seems Stephanie McMahon caught a lot of flack backstage.

A report from stated that WWE has agreed to sell the company to Saudi Arabia. Even the thought of WWE trying to sell the company to Saudi Arabia incited the anger of many fans.

That being said, the rumors that WWE and Saudi Arabia’s deal is “done” turned out to be false, as WWE has not been sold to the controversial Kingdom. However, many people in WWE expressed their dismay at Stephanie McMahon’s resignation.

Robert Karpeles was a WWE writer and producer between 2005 and 2007, so he knows how the backstage condition was in WWE at the time. While speaking to Wrestling Inc, Karpeles described meeting Vince McMahon as a different experience than anyone else. He added that Stephanie McMahon got a lot of flack backstage in WWE that she didn’t deserve.


“We were arguing over who had the worst dorm room in college. So it was very weird. She was a fantastic boss who caught a lot of flack unnecessarily.

I think just the nature of being in that role and that idea of, ‘Well, your last name is your last name and if you weren’t here it would be,’ fill-in-the-blank.”

Stephanie McMahon is currently enjoying her time away from WWE, as there is nothing more she can do now that her father is back in charge. The leave that she took months ago will continue now. We will have to wait and see what will become of WWE in the end.
