Vince McMahon’s return to WWE might be taught in business classes for years to come, as professors provide an illustration for ruthless business move. He came back to facilitate a sale and approve media rights, but it’s hard to imagine that Mr. McMahon won’t fully emerse himself in WWE once again.

Ringside News reached out to see how the company is doing with Vince McMahon’s return. In the process, we were told that Vince McMahon “has been back in the office all week.”

It was previously noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Vince McMahon wasn’t in the Stamford offices, but that is not the case. It was reported that, “For now, McMahon has not been to the office nor at television. The fear in some places that McMahon will maneuver himself back to running the company or heading creative, and be in charge of hiring and firing is not the case today. That doesn’t mean things won’t change.”

We were told that Vince McMahon has been at the offices, which is why he sent notes to several departments to suggest changes. Kevin Dunn addressed those notes from Mr. McMahon during the talent meeting prior to SmackDown this week. In the process, Dunn ensured talent that Vince McMahon’s WWE return will not affect creative, and no suggested changes from McMahon were made.


Vince McMahon came from humble beginnings, and every other venture he ever tried failed, except for WWE. Letting go of the company is a hard thing to do, and for all intents and purposes, Mr. McMahon still has a tight grasp of WWE.

This situation with WWE is still ongoing, and it could end in any number of ways. It all depends on who buys the company, but there is only one buyer, Saudi Arabia, who would plausibly keep Vince McMahon in any seat of power. That being said, a couple of buyers have expressed interest in keeping Triple H and inviting Stephanie McMahon back aboard.

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.
