Vince McMahon found his way back into WWE after a string of razor-sharp business moves that carved out a way for his return to power in the company. He amended the company bylaws to say that no media rights could proceed without the majority shareholder’s consent, and that just so happened to be Mr. McMahon. After taking his seat as Chairman of the Board of Directors once again, Vince McMahon is already making strong suggestions for change. With so much going on, it’s hard to keep up with all the rumors, but we can put one to rest today.

It was reported on Twitter, by an account that gets far too much attention, that “Brock has requested Vince book his matches.” True, Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon have a long history of doing business with each other, but Mr. McMahon is not on the creative side of things.

Ringside News reached out to confirm this story with a tenured source in WWE. We were outright told that this report about Brock Lesnar asking for Vince McMahon to book his matches is “fake news.”

Brock Lesnar did threaten to walkout when Vince McMahon retired, but he didn’t. That could be something that stirred this rumor up, but we can confirm that it is not factual.


Triple H will continue leading the company in his creative direction. Only time will tell if that status changes in the future, but, as of last week’s SmackDown, Vince McMahon has not attended any television taping event since his return to power.

Ringside News exclusively reported that Vince McMahon returned to WWE’s offices in Stamford this week. We also exclusively reported that Brad Blum was brought back as McMahon’s Chief of Staff, just a month and a half after he was fired.

Vince McMahon is obviously in a position where he can suggest changes for the company’s creative direction. At this time, there is no special deal for McMahon to work with Brock Lesnar.

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.
