Vince McMahon made headlines when he returned to the company under controversial circumstances, including allegations of sexual assault and hush money scandal. Despite these accusations, McMahon was able to regain his position as executive chairman through a series of unexpected events. That being said, it is unlikely he will return to WWE television anytime soon.
Vince McMahon’s return to the board of directors was met with controversy as he was perceived to have taken control of the company through aggressive means. He was determined to regain his position as leader of WWE, and ultimately succeeded when he was appointed as Executive Chairman after Stephanie McMahon resigned, while Nick Khan became the company’s only CEO. The move has been a topic of much discussion within the professional wrestling industry ever since.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Vince McMahon came back to the WWE offices in Stamford last week. He also brought back Brad Blum as his Chief of Staff, just a month and a half after WWE let him go.
Now that Vince McMahon has more or less assumed full control of WWE, many are under the belief that McMahon will take over the Creative aspect of the company once again. Many also believe Vince McMahon will return to WWE television very soon.
While speaking on The Bill Simmons Podcast to discuss a wide variety of subjects, WWE CEO Nick Khan was asked about McMahon’s return to WWE television. Khan made it clear it won’t be happening anytime soon.
“Not at this moment. No is the answer to that question. Could it change in a few months? Sure, it could change. But that would be Paul [Levesque] and Vince being on the same page about it. I don’t see it right now.”
The internal countdown is also on for Vince McMahon’s return to WWE Creative. McMahon will also not require any approval from WWE’s shareholders to take any actions from now on. We’ll have to see when McMahon will return to WWE television.
