Vince McMahon shocked the world when he made his way back to WWE after brief retirement period. Triple H took control of the company’s creative direction when McMahon retired, and he continues that role even after Mr. McMahon’s return to the Board of Directors. Many fans saw Stephanie McMahon’s quick resignation as a sign that Triple H might not be a fan of his father-in-law’s return to the company, but that is not the case.

Despite Vince McMahon’s return to WWE’s offices, and taking the Executive chair on the Board of Directors once again, Mr. McMahon is working different hours. He is still around, but not in the same way he once was.

Triple H spoke candidly at the conclusion of his address during WWE’s 4th quarter earnings call. He took a moment to speak about Vince McMahon’s return to WWE, and how he sees it as a benefit.

For me, and it will allow me to speak for our entire creative team, but we are standing on the shoulders of giants. So, having him back and involved, if even at a board level, comes with his incredible insight. He is a tremendous asset to this company.


Vince McMahon’s return to WWE was under the guise of selling the company. As he searches out alternatives for WWE’s ownership, Triple H will continue running the company’s creative direction while Vince McMahon keeps himself busy with the sale.

We will have to see who owns WWE this time next year. If anything, the early prediction was that WWE would be sold to new owners by the middle of 2023. Until that day comes, and even afterward, keep checking back with us here at Ringside News for all the news you need to know.
