Vince McMahon’s return to WWE as the Executive Chairman made it clear that he was getting ready to sell the company to the highest bidder. After almost three months of going back and forth between potential buyers, WWE was sold to UFC’s parent company Endeavor. Fans feared he was going to get involved in creative again and it seems that’s exactly what happened as Vince McMahon was heavily involved in this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
Endeavor is now the controlling owner of WWE, and they will merge UFC and WWE into a new publicly traded company. Things are obviously going to change from now on, no matter what fans think.
Vince McMahon recently Claimed that he would not be “in the weeds” of WWE Creative again, but would still make the big calls. However, after Monday Night RAW this week, that no longer seems to be the case whatsoever.
According to PW Insider, Vince McMahon was personally and heavily involved. It was added that he made changes to the script 15-20 minutes before Monday Night RAW. He also made changes when the show was already on air as well.
It was added that there was no doubt that Vince McMahon was firmly back in charge following the Endeavor acquisition of the company.
Vince McMahon was personally and heavily involved with last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources. PWInsider.com is told that about 15-20 minutes before Raw went live on the air, a number of late rewrites for the episode were ordered, described as not “feeling” like the type of changes talents and staff had come to expect under Paul Levesque.
Changes for the episode continued as the show well into being on the air and we are told they came directly from McMahon, who had his own office at Raw, just as he did before his “retirement” in the summer of 2022.
While McMahon stated he would not be “in the weeds” of creative on CNBC yesterday, we were told by multiple sources who were at Raw that there was no doubt that Vince was firmly back in charge following the Endeavor acquisition of the company.”
By the looks of it, Vince McMahon will remain a consistent face backstage in WWE at the Gorilla Position. With WWE being sold to Endeavor, the company is truly heading into a new era. That said, fans will be disappointed to know that Vince McMahon is fully back in the fold again.
