Vince McMahon generated significant media attention in the past year due to his involvement in a pay-for-silence scandal that was closely monitored by the professional wrestling community. Despite the scrutiny, he was able to retain his position as the majority shareholder and Executive Chairman of WWE, granting him substantial influence over the company’s future.

Vince McMahon’s return to the Board of Directors was met with controversy and was perceived as a hostile attempt to reclaim power at WWE. Despite the challenges, he ultimately succeeded in being appointed as Executive Chairman following Stephanie McMahon’s resignation, with Nick Khan retaining the role of CEO. The appointment has sparked ongoing discussions and speculation within the professional wrestling industry.

McMahon’s comeback was largely so that he could set up WWE for a potential sale – something that has been a huge topic of discussion for numerous years in the pro wrestling world.

While speaking to Denise Salcedo, John Morrison talked about the current changes in WWE, which included Vince McMahon’s return. Morrison stated that all these chaotic changes are just part of the business.


First of all, it seems crazy, right? Change is crazy. I can’t believe [it all]. Vince left. Vince is back. Hunter’s in charge. Without getting into the nitty-gritty of everything, it seems crazy until you think about things historically.” said John Morrison, “In that frame, it’s not that crazy. Because that’s what happens to civilizations, to businesses. Specifically, the wrestling business.

When Vince McMahon started it, basically he put a whole bunch of territories out of business, got a national TV deal and built WWF at the time up to what it is today. That came out of turmoil and turmoil is what happened with WCW and WWF. In the race back then between those two companies WWF won. Now AEW is on the map. Now Vince is back and he might sell the company to Saudi Arabia. It’s chaotic, it’s interesting. I think it’s part of the intrigue of the business.”

Vince McMahon’s return has seen significant changes in top management positions, including his daughter Stephanie McMahon resigning as co-CEO. Moreover, Vince’s relations with Saudi Arabia have made them the front-runner in purchasing the company. We will have to wait and see if McMahon does step aside after getting the deal he wants for the sale of his global juggernaut.
