Vince McMahon controlled WWE’s creative direction for decades, and some fans are conditioned to know what to expect. Fans are not the only people who were trained to know what to think is coming from WWE, because their writers apparently have a lot of Vince McMahon left in them as well.

WWE has a lot of things in the works on the road to WrestleMania. Sami Zayn is about to face Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber, and there is a thought that WWE should switch things up, especially with how over Sami Zayn is now.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained how there are a few WWE writers that still think Vince McMahon’s booking style is the only correct way to book a pro wrestling show, because that’s all they’ve ever known.
“It’s so funny that with Vince, Vince created, I would say, a group of writers who do not understand, because like when Tony Khan would have the local guy win, I know some of the writers were like, ‘Tony doesn’t even know that you always beat the guy in his hometown for heat.’ They were taught that there’s only one way to do it, even though, you know it’s just Vince, and how it does it.”
“There’s more than one way to do this business. There’s probably fifty correct ways, but because people have only watched one company and one guy’s vision, they think all these other ways, that are correct, are not correct, because Vince never did them. That was one of the ones as far as beating someone in their hometown.”
Meltzer went on to explain that Jim Ross used to dread television tapings in Oklahoma, because Vince McMahon always found out some way to humiliate him in his home state. Now that Vince McMahon is no longer calling the creative shots, his memory certainly remains.
We will have to see how WWE books the future, but Triple H is certainly not doing everything in the same way that his father-in-law did things.
